21: George Counes (con'd)


Tool I wish I had but don’t: CNC mill

Tool I have but wish I didn't: Sky hook



Heaven on Earth: Hauling ass on a smooth highway in a t-shirt with a cool breeze with nowhere to be and nothing to do



Proudest moment: Honestly, it has to be graduating Infantry Training School at Camp Pendleton as company honor man with my Dad there to watch the ceremonies

Darkest secret: I like beer

Deepest fear: Front tire blow out on the freeway

Biggest regret: Trading my original paint, vintage ‘61 Strat for a new Kramer Vanguard at the Guitar Center in San Francisco in 1984 because I thought I needed a "Metal" guitar



Reason for being: Making stuff

If I lost my right arm: What a messed up question--I think I have a new deepest fear

Thanks: Adolph Coors

George & Wendy are two people I don't get to spend nearly enough time with. However every time is a good time.
