Mods: If this would be more appropriate in GQ or IMHO, feel free to move it. It’s about guitars (sort of), so I’m starting in CS.
I was just reading Lemmy’s (Kilminster, of Motorhead) Wikipedia page, and it had this bit from a documentary about him:
When (and maybe where) was that kind of scenario ever commonplace? It’s one of those things I’d always heard, but never witnessed. Maybe it was a feature of the early days of rock & roll, and I was just too late to reap the benefits? I was a teenager learning to play guitar in the '80s, and despite actually knowing how to play I never noticed that simply being able to play guitar was anything resembling a “chick magnet”. Playing guitar in a reasonably good band, yes. Merely knowing how to play guitar? Not so much.
