A little more information

The two main activities in my life: Helping the hungry in the late hours of the night and helping guitar players sound better one amp at a time.

I always try to remember that in order to do good one has to take action and actually do something.

I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I have watched the city and Southern California change for well over half a century.

I can be found on facebook at www.facebook.com/mylesr or on twitter at www.twitter.com/myles111us

As of late 2019 the music related links and prints noted on this page which had their links to by GAB (Guitar Amplifier Blueprinting) website are no longer accessible. I grew weary of updating my GAB website and let it go away. You can contact me on Facebook. Saunders Stewart Models continues full operation but we are not accepting new clients without a referral.

The Utimate Coffee Table Book Collection has been updated

September 2, 2010 Updated.  1,231 photos now in the collection.

August 22, 2010.  Just updated with food shots on the taco quest, a stage shot of the Whispering Pines rig at the Redondo Beerfest yesterday from Joe on the road, a terrific retro sign at Atomic Records, and a heart stopping shot of a couple shopping at Ikea for doors!

1,164 photos now in this emotionally draining slideshow which mixes art, whimsey, low production values, a general lack of composition, sexual tension, nausea and the feeling of foolishness you have if you can watch the entire show from beginning to end.

The Ultimate Coffee Table Book slideshow. Some cell phone shots from Joe Bourdet on the road and Mark Horne out there on the actual road. The slideshow now shows the most current shots first so folks get to see the lastest and greatest. Feel free to send me any of your own cell shots for consideration for album submission. I want to attempt to put these all into print sometime in 2010.
