Topic: Jb Picks wanted.

Hi,
I am trying to get some stuff to put on the walls of my sons bedroom. He is 18 and has Muscular Dystrophy and we have just had a new room and bathroom built for him. With the all the medical equipment in there no matter how we try it always resembles a hospital room. I have written off to all the bands/artists he likes and got a zero response, I have spent over $300 joining fan clubs, only to be told that they cannot help as have no direct contact with the the artist (this so pissies me off as  he spends all his money on their CDs and concert tickets).
I have some Joe stuff (heart felt thanks - you know who you are:)) that I will try to get signed at a couple of gigs I am going to. He really likes to strum on my guitar with a pick and is fascinated by them. I understand there are 3 that are personilized by joe. I have the small dunlop one but looking for the other two to frame and hang on his wall. I am quite willing to pay if anyone has any spare. I have seen one or two on ebay but $30 is a little excessive.
Also if anyone has any contact with bands who can maybe send Alex a little something, I would be eternally grateful. The Who, Oasis and Kings of Leon in particular I dont like doing this sort of open post but I am hitting brick walls all the time and I just want to do good for a great kid.

Martin, send me a note off forum and I will send you some cool Joe items for nothing from fan to fan.  I have an extra one of those Blues Deluxe picks laying around that I can send along too. All the best to you and your son, Larry G

Re: Jb Picks wanted.

Hello Martin,

Send me your address on my email and I'll send your son something.

I'm sure that if Joehimself ( picks!!) or /and Rachel read this, they will surely send you something. If not........................................................
I'll send Rachel an email about this.

Wish you your son all the best!!

I literally just picked up a purple Joe B. Budda pick I had given my son but he left it in a pile of junk, a pile of junk for me to clean up. He obviously isn't needing it, deserving it, or going to miss it. I would be happy to send it to you!

Re: Jb Picks wanted.

Many thanks to all, I have sent emails:)

Martin I have one of these picks going out to that address you gave me today. I am sending mine though because I forgot the one I was going to send was given to the kid by someone else. A nice man at the 2006 Western MD blues fest gave it to my son after the show with the conditions he promised to learn to play the guitar. When I asked my kid the other day if he was ready to take lessons he wasn't ready to jump in yet but he did say he has not forgotten his promise to that nice man who's name I don't know but if for some chance he reads this I don't want him to think he was forgotten!
and I am also letting you know I haven't forgotten, just getting round to it.
