As the Destination Marketing arena becomes increasingly complex, DMOproZ strives to provide an easily accessed Knowledge Bank for DMO pros around the world. From White Papers to cutting edge Research to our recommendations on books to make you think, videos to encourage your creativity and blogs to keep you current.

And, we want this to be a two-way street. When you see a great resource that would be a benefit to the DMO collective, shoot it our way and we'll post it up for your peers. 


The Path of a Guitar

220px-Joan_Jett_&_the_Blackhearts_-_AlbumJoan Jett tells a great story about how the Les Paul she used with the Runaways was just too heavy to cart around on stage with her new acrobatic moves as a solo artist. She heard that Eric Carmen was selling his Melody Maker, the guitar he used on "Go All the Way" with the Raspberries...and she snapped it up.

That's the guitar she used on “I Love Rock ’n’ Roll,” “Crimson and Clover,” “Do You Want to Touch Me,” “Bad Reputation”…all those early records.

THAT guitar. Wow.

On this Music Friday, we go with our faves: The Raspberries' "Go All the Way" (the greatest teen lust song ever) and Joan's less known, but so killer, "Bad Reputation."

Turn it TF up.
