So now I’m back home in the UK, after a hectic and fun week over in the US of A! I went over to shoot some cool shred vids for Guitar World Magazine and thought ” hey since I’m in the US I can might as well go by EMG!” Which basically meant flying over to Oakland, California!
So how long have I’ve been using EMG? I got my first set back in 2009, the Kerry King signature set, in fact my very first tweet, is a tweet about my EMG pickups 😀
So, here we go!
I almost lost my flight the 29th as I waited 1 hour for a SuperShuttle that never showed up! Becoming increasingly stressed out, I eventually grabbed a cab and as we arrived to the airport I jumped out of the car and ran as fast as I could and was barely able to make it in time to get myself checked in.
By the time I finally got to the gate, they were already boarding the economy section. Thank you “Super” Shuttle.
The flight though, was absolutely amazing in terms of view! I also had wi-fi the whole trip ( you gotta love these American Airlines).
Check out this iPod, seriously…it looks like one
We flew over mountains and an area full of crop circles…Aliens anyone?
Serious alien activity….
Anyway, check out the awesome orange soil!
Is this the Grand Canyon? Looks totally awesome!! Check out the huge crack!
Some desert, it seems like…
And that’s a dried out river folks….draught in California…
After my trans-American flight, I had to wait at LAX for a cute little plane that took me to Oakland, seriously I would like to own one of those and know how to fly one!!!!!
Once I had arrived to Oakland, I engaged in a very interesting Peek-A-Boo séance with my driver, which basically took a whole hour…lol…before we finally found each other…again 😛
I should have taken a picture of the car, but alas, whenever I get drivers I always forget to take pics, which is a shame, because having a driver totally rocks \m/
It was a 2 hour drive
When did I wake up? Around 3 o’clock and totally de-hydrated I went for a water-hunt around the hotel and did some blogging.
Make-up time, warm up time, breakfast time & mall time.
EMG TV TIME! SUBSCRIBE TO EMG TV & GUITAR WORLD ON YOUTUBE RIGHT HERE:
We figured that I was gonna make an alternative entry and talk about the abuse and neglect you have to endure as an EMG artist…
I can’t believe I had to walk from the airport and sleep like this!
That’s IT I’ve had enough! 😛 😛
Anyway, jokes aside, it was a VERY productive trip, we got a lot of material down and it was fun too \m/
The day after we did a factory tour!
Then Tommy took me to the airport, and off I went back to New York!
Thanks a lot to Tommy and EMG for the invitation \m/ \m/ \m/ \m/ \m/
I would seriously love a plane like this.
Hanging out at LAX again….
Looking at dolls!!!! 😛 😛 😛 😛
