Monty Python's Terry Jones is linked so much to one famous role - which was the appearance of Mr. Creosote in „The Meaning Of Life“. Mr. Creosote obviously was a fat man (before he literally exploded). „Fat Man“ was the name of the second atomic bomb, going down onto Nagasaki in August 1945.

This Schechter guitar is an Evil Twin model. „Yellow sun its evil twin, in the black the wings deliver him“.
