    Mesmerizing image Syd, and perfect song to go with it!
    I have no answers for you at this time…not even the easy one, won, 1.

  • I guess it all depends on who your favorite Fab 4 was…

    Syd rocking in hope big style mate! This is cool, really excellent in all-aspects! BRAVO!!!…)o(

  • Thank you DS, I made Blue Man that guitar before Christmas for something else, and this idea just grew inside and burst out at just the right time!!

    Awesome Syd! And I’ve always loved that Moody Blues tune – great accompaniment to the piece.

  • Thanks Alice, this one took a while because it’s lots of pieces made separate to be assembled, and long rendering times!

    Absolutely rockin’ cool awesome image Syd!!! Love your intent with this one too. :o)

    Is the guitar Justin Haywards? Or perhaps yours?!! And are they standing on a silicon chip?

  • Thanks Jen!! No, 2 good guesses, but nope! go back further with the guitar, what theyre standing on is sometin=mes on the ground, sometimes up in the air…

    Fantastic image, excellent message and love the song:)

  • Thank you Romo, only problem I had with this was how long it took to do it just right after I got the idea!

  • Thank you Danilo, this one evolved suddenly into this from another idea, wanted to be born I think!

    looks like Roger McGuinn’s Rickenbacker…
    something from Close Encounters? (naw…)
    this is so damn cool, Syd! I agree with Jen, love the intent, dude! a great combo!
    blue man rocks!!! great image

  • For you, I’ll spill the beans, it’s even now known as the John Lennen model Rickenbacker, I once had a sunburst one with 2 pickups, and they’re stage is really the top of the Millenium Falcon, scaled down a bit, ran across a free 3D model of it while looking for a decent image of an auditorium stage. Thanks my friend, and I think McGuinn’s was a 12 string with the slash sound holes (?) might have to look that up!

    yup, right on McGuinns…my bro had a sunburst 12 string like RM’s…yeah, I see the M Falcon now…not a big Star Wars guy…really like ‘The Babe in the Sky’ in the back…
    hey man, your avatar is aging…heheh…hippie!

  • It seemed so right, set up the band on top of a big round flat starship, then rise up just enough, you could play to all of Woodstock!
    Yeah, these last 2 photos are the only ones from those days, the next one jumps to 1995, but we’ll save that for a bit!
