A head scratcher to me for sure


A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.

We turned down the gig because they only wanted to pay us $1000. Looking back now, probably not one of our best decisions 😁
