Summer Daze

I named my acoustic guitar Caroline a long time ago. The
name came from the fact that Caroline Records was the record
label that released 'Gish' - the first Smashing Pumpkins album

I've grown a deep affection for Caroline over the years - and
I rarely call her by name. I usually just grab her and start
strumming, picking or smashin'. She's been with me through
many loves, many trials and many dark nights of the soul. I
bought her used from Jason Verburg in 1994 for 200 bucks.

Caroline came with me on a trip across Western Canada last
year. She's been there when others haven't - or couldn't.

Here's to you Caroline and 17 sweet years of your glorious
