The news came out last week that Gibson Brands Inc, makers of Gibson Guitars, has filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. Gibson guitars are synonymous with Rock N' Roll, which are played by such legendary guitarists like; Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Ace Frehley (KISS), Angus Young (AC/DC),  Slash (Guns N' Roses), and plenty others. In case you missed that news, read the story HERE

As a guitar player myself, I do hope they manage to pull it together. I remember as a teen when I first was learning Guitar, staring at my KISS posters on the wall, and wanting a Gibson Les Paul just like the one that Ace Frehley played. To this day, I DON'T have one like Ace's, but I do have a few Gibsons, (I DO have a guitar like Angus Young's though), and I love 'em!  Plus, I don't want them to go away, because they have helped shape the sound of modern music for over half a century now.

Besides, whenever I'm not on the radio, I LOVE to rock my 1973 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe....:-)
