EMG Pickups!

Standard

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 πŸ˜€

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).

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 sΓ©ance with my driver, which basically took a whole hour…lol…before we finally found each other…again πŸ˜›

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/

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.

Anyway, jokes aside, it was a VERY productive trip, we got a lot of material down and it was fun too \m/
