Picture the scene...

You are at a gig. The first set has been blinding. You are sweaty, grinning like a maniac and wondering if life will even be worth living after the show, because nothing will ever beat this. Period.

The 'band' retake the stage, the drummer and the bloke who hangs around with the band (the bass player) bring it back in with an infectious rolling rythm, the lead vocals requests you 'put your hands together' to welcome a 'very special guest', we are honoured to be joined by etc etc, and on walks the most unexpected guest you could have thought of. But theres more! He (or she, or it, or them) are packing CBGs!

Living or otherwise, for better or worse, or just for the sheer hell of it, who's it gonna be??

Lemmy from Motorhead maybe? Postman Pat perhaps? Gordon Ramsey playing a mandolin cbg?

Iv'e seen him in pictures holding one, but never heard him play one- Billy Gibbons- have mercy!
Who would you MOST like to see playing a CBG? jim!
Naturally. The guy isnt a legend, he is THE legend. Especially around 'Harvest' time. I can leave the Crazy Horse stuff well alone, but the early stuff defines songwriting.
Good call :o)

Neil Young he can play anything from Heavy thrash metal,grunge to country on a guitar the guy is a legend..a voice that can that anyone can sing along to and sound good too...mind you after seeing his last concert the CBG better be well made as he gives his own guitars a work over..
How about Carlos Santana.
Johnny and Dee Dee Ramone.
Poison Ivy..
This Guy

I think it might be Shane, he wears the bag to keep the cbg masses from flogging him for playing a standard guitar.
or maybe just this guy

Come to the States HB! The Joker is too poor to travel to Belgium!!!
I just realized, why does he have a sheet music stand with no sheet music on it?
