Subject: RE: BS: Can't run a force without acronyms
Sorry leeneia, GAS and BvB are perhaps guitarists', rather than general musicians' terms.

GAS = Guitar (or Gear) Aquisition Syndrome; the irresistible urge to acquire ever better, more expensive, guitars. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome is perhaps suffered more by rock guitarists, as they fall prey to the temptation to gain bigger amps and speakers, more and more foot pedals and so on, in addition to the flashier guitars.)

BvB =
"Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the Queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulder
Tied up with a black velvet band."


<non-PC> To the less glamourous uniformed branch of the constabulary, "CID" stands for "C***s in Disguise". </non-PC>
