    I mean I usually go for a 38 string. But I'll make an exception!

    38 might be good but not everyone has had finger extensions!

    Are you suggesting he can play 38 too?

    I've heard plenty of his songs over the years but I only have Sex and Religion and Fire Garden. I do have Eat Em and Smile and Skyscraper by DLR but only two of his solo albums.

    My favorites are Passion And Warfare and Alien Love Secrets. PAW being a masterpiece for me. But I also really like Sex And Religion although it's been a long time since I listened. Fire Garden is pretty good too but the start of his decline for me. I liked Eat Em And Smile a lot. Skyscraper not as much.

    Yeah it's been a long time since I listened to them, but I only really bought them for Hevy Devy.
    I only like about 3 songs off Skyscraper, but I only bought the two DLR albums because they were $3 on LP in a second hand shop.

    I always liked the film clip to Just Like Paradise, sure I never paid to watch the film clip but it's gotta be worth more than $3.
