Steve Barncard

Hello Tapeop,
Would you run an interview with Steve Barncard, find out what he's been doing since making American Beauty and other Bay Area records? Maybe Dan Healy or Bob and Betty? How about a few words from Ousley?
Thanks,
Ricky
P.S. Love this magazine.

Has anybody here tried the Dark Star pickups? I think they are made by Hammond engineering or electronics. They are based on a Hagstrom design used in Guild basses played by Casady and Lesh.

Thanks for the info. I installed Windvd 4 and even though audio would not pass when using its player, i think some of the drivers installed with it are being used by Windows Media Player.so now I get moving pictures with sound.
