So, it's getting on for twenty years since your idol died.
You get asked to do a memorial night for him, meet his mother and have a great time.
Then [url="http://www.epkmusic.co.uk/philbass/1.jpg"]this[/url] turns up.
It's been in your hero's mother's house since the day he died.
You [url="http://www.epkmusic.co.uk/philbass/2.jpg"]open it up.[/url]
[url="http://www.epkmusic.co.uk/philbass/3.jpg"]There it is.[/url]
Still got the last set of strings he played on it, with his sweat .[url="http://www.epkmusic.co.uk/philbass/4.jpg"]under those strings[/url].
[url="http://www.epkmusic.co.uk/philbass/5.jpg"]That famous mirrored scratchplate[/url].
So, [url="http://www.epkmusic.co.uk/philbass/6.jpg"]you just gotta play it.[/url]
[url="http://www.epkmusic.co.uk/philbass/7.jpg"]You gotta pose with it.[/url]
And, of course, you gotta [url="http://www.epkmusic.co.uk/philbass/8.jpg"]throw "that" shape.[/url].
But if Mickey Waters of The Answer says he's buying it....don't believe a word.

The 'that shape' pic is top/hilarous... :lol
That is so class. What a legend.
Micky you lucky barsteward
Yeah. His mother, she was at Maghaberry Prison watching a group of the inmates playing as a Thin Lizzy tribute band. No joke.
And apparently they are indeed very very good.
Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak...
yeah, i saw that on sat, apparently expected to sell for at least a million squid...
could have given in a wee bit of a clean an polish to get all those nasty fingerprints off :evil
A million? Doubt it... was it one of the Guitar Emporium guys who told you that? A pinch of salt required!
And I doubt it's for sale anyway
Nope..it's for making a replica of, not for sale.
I just happened to stumble over (quite literally cos i was rubbered) "the rocker" being featured on the biography channel on sky late on friday night, bleeding wonderful. all i have to do now is find out when it's on again so i acn watch it when sober!
