“Well, there was this guy named – they called him ‘H’ – who was roadie, gofer and general assistant.

He gave it to me and we had it hanging on the wall as a decoration for years and years, and then I met some guys who were capable of putting guitars back together, so I had it done.”“I’ve used it on a couple of tracks, although I can’t remember which ones off-hand.
