Yes, I have a soft spot in my heart for accordions. My Dad raised us 6 Sicilan kids on the instrument & I had 10 years of classical training from him, a true professional career musician, gigging until he was 86, and receiving a 70 YEAR PLAQUE from Detroit Local 5 Musicians Union. My STRONG passion is Vintage Guitars, Stringed Instruments, & Amps, but yes, I have a weakness.

 John Iden of the 60's group the "yardbirds" playin' and diggin' the 68 National acoustic

Had a very nice visit from my old friend John Idan of the 'Yardbirds' at our store. He strolled on in from England for a couple of hours we just had a BLAST!! Talked about old times, he was coming up with some memories from the mid-70's I sure as hell forgot about. We used to jam a lot back then. He was my neighbor, I was playin' bars 6 nights a week and he was just a kid. A very talented kid obviously and I have been very happy for him since he moved to England 30 years ago or so eventually hooking up with the Yardbirds.
