these are heavy duty amps.

really weird coincidence that they BOTH failed at the same time. I wonder what happened.

"Looks like the big ROCK STAR needs me to save the show. Might be able to do it. Wouldn't want to let down 100,000 screaming fans"

So many youtube repair videos have this energy. "Looks like you've got a problem and you need me to fix it. Let me jerk off while I explain something you can't do".

So a couple of blown fuses and a bad tube. I don’t understand why that couldn’t be diagnosed by the tech.

The guy from Psionic who repaired the amps said it was the guitar tech's 3rd day on the job and he was still trying to figure things out which means... that video of Billy having the tantrum on stage and screaming at his guitar tech on stage last week, he must have Corgan'd that tech right after the show.

It would make sense that Billy is a bargain bin tech shopper who then majorly freaks out when something bad happens

billy here's a pro-tip from a tried and true professional: the "big" plug from your guitar goes into the "big" plug of your amp

in part, yes, absolutely

"SOLO_COMP_4"

but to a much larger degree it's an unsatisfied itch remaining from the teenage obsession years

it's the one thing i wanted to hear him talk about in more detail and see photos of, but never did (i owned and used one for years, even)

it's bizarre and pointless, but it's a legit grail-esque quest

i have a folder somewhere of terrible-quality youtube screenshots and various getty image concert shots from any time it popped into frame
