On June 22nd Kevin went to Nazareth, Pennsylvania for the second annual Martin Guitar Owners Club event. The event was a feast for guitar lovers of every stripe. There were dream models to pick up and play - which proved to be an irresistable opportunity for pickin' and grinnin'! Open mike performances provided entertainment and an opportunity to share a common passion for guitar music. C. F. Martin IV addressed the attendees with news about the scarcity of tonewoods in the future and inside info about current events at the Martin factory. A factory tour was one of the highlights of the event.
Kevin met Dick Boak who is Martin's artist relations man and editor of The Sounding Board newsletter. Check out the article about Marshall Artz in Volume 18 January 2005 by Len Jaffe! Dick introduced Kevin to a couple from England who are providing the world with WHERE'S ERIC! the fan magazine devoted to keeping an eye on the whereabouts of Eric Clapton.
