Sites The Sick-Leaves like:

I used to buy NME every week when living in the UK and still check the website regularly for interesting reviews, events and interviews.

I play Gibson guitars. The first Gibson I owned was a 1991 Sunburst Les Paul Standard. Current axes are a 2006 Cherry Gibson ES-336 and a 2010 Light Caramel Burst Gibson ES-339. There is something about semi-hollow bodies that puts them in a different class to solid bodies. I highly recommend Gibson, the website gives all the information on each of the models available.

I play D’Addario electric strings

and Elixir acoustic strings

I play Peavey Classic 30 amps. They are compact and light and is seriously one of the loudest and most reliable amps out there.
