Phil X....‘A Day for Charlotte’....Interview....



Denise Westwood interviews guitarist Phil X for ‘A Day for Charlotte’ benefit show at The Whisky Monday 8/17/2015....

A Day for Charlotte is an event and auction to raise funds for Charlotte Avery's fight against leukemia.
On May 26, 2015 at 18 months of age Charlotte was diagnosed with leukemia. On May 27, 2015 a bone marrow biopsy confirmed that the type of leukemia is Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), the most curable form of childhood leukemia.
Unfortunately, after Charlotte’s discharge from hospital, all of the medications required for the 2.5 year treatment plan necessary for her full recovery are not covered by OHIP.

A Day For Charlotte

Beautiful Charlotte Avery was born on November 13, 2013.
From the get go Charlotte has been feisty and charming, renewing the old and mundane through her new adventurous eyes for all of us around her. Then her world changed.
Now her health journey begins. The 1st phase started May 29 with a 30-day chemotherapy treatment plan with the outcome of remission for Charlotte. From here Charlotte will start the 2nd phase of consolidation for 60 days and then the 3rd phase of maintenance for 2 years with the final outcome of a cancer free life for Charlotte.
Once discharged from the hospital much of her treatment will be administered by her Mommy. During this time Mommy will be home with Charlotte for the next 2.5 years.

People You May or May Not Know....But Should....Dan Boul....

The Mighty Phil X was a guest on Lunch with Dan Boul a few weeks ago....He's been on the show a few times now....



This is not the first time I have come across Mr Boul of 65Amps fame but this was the first time I spent any time actually listening to the man..."or should that be The Dude"....Long Story Short as Victor Kiam would say "I liked it so much I bought the company"....OK....not the company but I did by an amp....a 65Amps Ventura....


ain't she perdy....

Anywho....Lunch with Dan Boul has been airing for a few years now....you can watch live and ask questions or you can watch on YouTube....if he remembers to upload it....The shows are a little over a hour ish long....it's Dan plus guests playing 65Amps....it's just like an evening with Peter Ustinov but with swearing and guitars....it racers along and you get sucked in....the man can charm the ass off a donkey....

David Ryan Harris from John Mayer's band playing a Ventura....This Vid made my mind up for me that a Dr Z or a Jackson Ampworks amp would have to be a next time purchase....Considering that this is on YouTube the Ventura sounds awesome and trust me it is when you play one for real....The Ventura was going to be for home use only but it's so good it's going to be my main amp using my Evil Robot as a slave to give the Ventura's 20watts a kick up in volume for giging....More on that in another post....


Sometimes the show is given over to Tech Talk....Here we have Myles Rose from Guitar Amplifier Blueprinting....longtime friend and tube guru....Myles used to work for Groove Tubes when they were owned by Aspen Pittman....it's clear that what he dosn't know about tubes ain't worth knowing....In the few months I've been watching the show I've learnt more about amps from Dan and Myles than I've learnt in the past 20 years....


Mostly the guests are 65Amps players....but don't let that put you off....the show is a blast of fun that beats watching TV....and if you don't know who Frankie Whyte is....you will....check her out here....


But it's all changing....Lunch with Dan Boul is moving from Dave Friedman's Tone Merchants in LA to LUCKY STRIKE LIVE in Hollywood....Fingers crossed it's still going to be the same show....but now with alcohol and bowling....what could be better....Wednesdays 12pm Pacific Time....in the UK that's 8PM....Go to NMB Live....you don't have to sign up to watch....but if you want to say hi and ask a question or two....you will have to sort out a user name and a password....simple as that....k.j.
