Oops!! We got so distracted from our guitar show & sale on Saturday we forgot to post this week's 50th celebration.
Let's stay with our friend Alfred E. Neuman for a little while longer. The character as we know him was drawn by Norman Mingo in 1956, when MAD's editor said "I want him to be loveable and have an intelligence behind his eyes. But I want him to have this devil-may-care attitude, someone who can maintain a sense of humor while the world is collapsing around him." Kind of describes a few musicians we know!
Here's Alfred, 50 years ago, on the April 1967 cover. For week 15 of our 50th anniversary celebrations, buy a Dean Markley ProMag Grand soundhole pickup (with humbucking magnet) for $50 + tax.
