ULTIMATE GUITAR SHOWDOWN
Direct link

I have to take a minute to thank all you folks who sprang to my support in the Ultimate Guitar poll for ‘Best Guitarist’, and in the end propelled me to win the whole thing. Before we go any further I’m gonna have to say I don't for a moment think I’m ‘best’ … a better player than all those wonderful players, many of whom are the reason I’m a guitarist at all ? … Jim Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Joe Satriani, Eric Clapton ? … well, I don’t think so. I’m just happy to have been considered on the same page as these heroes of mine.

But the fact that so many people voted me to the top in this very enjoyable bit of fun means a lot to me. To me there is no way to categorise or rank rock guitarists … the greatest thing is that they’re all different and impossible to compare. But this is the first time I’ve been honoured by so many people as a significant player, so I’m very grateful.

I have one request. If there is a trophy being awarded for this, I’d like to share it with Dimebag Darrell, who isn’t around to enjoy the fact that so many folks are still devoted to him and his great playing. It was a special honour being paired with Dimebag in the final.

Cheers

NASA's Dawn mission will arrive at Ceres on March 6, 2015, and will be the first spacecraft to explore a dwarf planet. Ceres is the largest body in the main asteroid belt. At the time of its discovery in 1801 it was considered a planet and later demoted. http://www.nasa.gov

SCOOP ! My pal Claudia Manzoni put together the first close-up stereo of dwarf planet Ceres EVER !!!! From the brand new pictures from NASA Dawn - [http://dawn.jpl.nasa.gov] - published today. Enjoy ! [READ News Release HERE.]

Until the NASA’s Dawn spaceship drew close to Ceres this week, the best pictures we had of this, the largest minor planet (590 miles across) were from the Hubble Space Telescope, in orbit around the Earth. They showed little more than an indistinct blob with a noticeable bright spot, which highlighted the rotation period of the object (about 9 hours). There have been many speculations about what that bright spot could be … but no firm conclusions. These spectacular new pictures show that the bright spot is very compact, not just the floor of a crater, but much smaller and more intense, and … double ! Fascinating ! And still there is no firm conclusion as to what is causing this very bright feature. It looks temptingly like an intelligent signal, doesn’t it ?
