Cool!  He always was a line6 fan, and used them right from the ax212 amp onward, despite fighting with the tech at times.

 

He uses a lot of other things too, mind you (I got to hang with him and talk shop 20 years ago and go through his rig, which was in my drummer's home/studio/rehearsal space at the time).

 

I'm excited to hear he's using the helix now! A true legend in guitar land, although very polarizing as a player.  One of my all time favorites, and a hell of a guy, too, not to mention one of my personal idols.

 

He's been so dedicated to line6 from the start, it's rather amazing really!

That was a nice read.  Thanks.  I liked this part as it summarizes the Helix and how to approach using it.  A lot of work upfront so it simply does what you need it to when you need it to.

 

"I like to press one button and radically change my sound. I just press a button and it all happens at once. That is heaven, you know. Performing is all about preparation. It took me a while to get into programming, but the [Line 6] Helix can do everything I can possibly want and, therefore, that’s all I want to use."

Yes, that's very observant.  Very good point, and it is a lesson we should all learn, whether or not we use modelers that require a lot of prep.

 

Thanks for pointing that out!
