Depends. Germany makes some damn good cars, no doubt about that, and I wouldn't feel wrong saying that they are the best on the road, but if you're talking about best made cars, it's hard to argue with Japan, which has a well-earned reputation for making cars that run for a very long time on very minimal maintenance.

Damn right. Les Paul through a Marshall stack. A marriage made in heaven.

First time I ever saw a band playing Marshalls was at the Fillmore East-it was Blue Cheer (thoroughly lousy) they had a wall of Marshalls and my friend says "You're going to FEEL this." He was right, of course.

He was the same guy who had an uncle who had a 4x10 1958 Fender Bassman. He borrowed it one time and says to me "This is the best guitar amplifier ever made." that was in 1965. A man ahead of his time.

Well...I guess people judge 'best' by different standards. Joni Mitchell is one of the world's most respected songwriters and musicians. U2 and The Stones may sell out more arenas and stadiums, but musically they're not even on the same planet, never mind the same league.

Then again, your tastes as a listener need no explanation whatsoever. You like what you like, and if you prefer the Stones to Joni, then great!
