An awards ceremony without a auction just would not be right. Tonight we have thrown a CR120C into the mix, we are getting the celebs to sign it as they enter and then we will auction it off, giving all proceeds to Little Kids Rock (http://www.littlekidsrock.org/). Little Kids Rock is a national non-profit which aims to transform children’s lives by bring music education to disadvantage public schools. Maybe we can help nature and inspire the next rock god? Let’s hope so!

Dinner Time! What we eating tonight you ask? I’ll break it down to a sentence, a fancy salad, steak and vegetables, chocolate cake (without flour). Lovely.

Orange rocking bass supremo Glenn Hughes saying Hi!

What’s going to win reissue of the year? Lets face it, there can only be one and that’s the deluxe editions of Led Zepplin’s first three records, remastered by Page himself. Page was one of the earlier uses of Orange and our amps can be heard all over those first three master pieces!
