Picture the scene...

You are at a gig. The first set has been blinding. You are sweaty, grinning like a maniac and wondering if life will even be worth living after the show, because nothing will ever beat this. Period.

The 'band' retake the stage, the drummer and the bloke who hangs around with the band (the bass player) bring it back in with an infectious rolling rythm, the lead vocals requests you 'put your hands together' to welcome a 'very special guest', we are honoured to be joined by etc etc, and on walks the most unexpected guest you could have thought of. But theres more! He (or she, or it, or them) are packing CBGs!

Living or otherwise, for better or worse, or just for the sheer hell of it, who's it gonna be??

Lemmy from Motorhead maybe? Postman Pat perhaps? Gordon Ramsey playing a mandolin cbg?

Jack White. Since that dream is complete, Robbie Robertson.
Harry Manx ... the more I listen to his music the more I love it. I've got tickets to see him in concert next month, and can't wait!
Definately, Alex Lifeson. I think that guy can play anything, and he seems to have so much fun doing it.

...and of course Johnny Depp. This is a REAL photo of Depp in France.

Uncle Crow, we would kill for an opening like that. seriously though the one person i would wanna see play a CBG does, he playes a daddy mojo, Mr Jack White.
Hey, I play "Working Man" with a "YYZ" teaser in the middle jam... and I do it on a cigar box guitar. Does that count? And Joker, that ain't me. I use a plastic bag (for some reason I keep passing out during those shows...)

For a minute I thought that was a real pic of Lifeson playing a cbg!

Maybe this is BOB LOG III before he he got the helmet

I just realized, why does he have a sheet music stand with no sheet music on it?

I think it might be Shane, he wears the bag to keep the cbg masses from flogging him for playing a standard guitar.
Then in that case, I would like to add "The King" Speal playing Rush on the CBG as performers I would most like to see playing a CBG...with or without bag. (I'll bet you do a mean Passage to Bangkok, Shane, with that Middle Eastern vibe you do).

joker, i was thinking the same guy. Or it could be nash the slash. I would dig seeing Dave Mustaine thrashing a cbg.
