Thank You Chicago

It is with a sad heart that I must announce that after 9 years at the legendary WLUP, the LOOP and I have parted ways. The new owners have wisely chosen to move the station in a new direction, and even though I will not be a part of that future I certainly wish them the best of success.

9 years man. Thats crazy. I would like to thank the incredible staff at Cumulus, as well as the many talented people and jocks who came in and out of the doors since I began this cool journey. Its been a true pleasure to work with all of you.

Fender is well known in the rock world of guitarists. Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and many other greats have used this hunk of wood to achieve greatness. Now, the team at Fender has partnered with MLB to create a special line of team guitars. Yes, they do look very cool.

So far, 15 different models are available including a All-Star version. Since I’m from Chicago, I have to admit the Cubs version caught my eye instantly. It might not be my favorite design of the bunch.. but a Cubs guitar?!?! SOLD!

Unfortunately, I did not see a White Sox guitar at this time.

The LOOP has been playing the Police since the beginning, and there is not doubt about the musical ability of all of their members. Although, I wonder sometimes if our boy Stewart Copeland gets his fair due as a drummer.

We often hear people talk about Neil from Rush, or John from Zep, even Keith from the Who, and these are all excellent examples of rock drummers at the top of their game. But what about Stew?
