Tony McKenzie is Your Cool Uncle

by | Nov 3, 2013 | Gear, Good Finds, Silly

You know that uncle you have who was in Suicidal Tendencies for 15 minutes1 but now he has less hair and more glasses, although he still plays out all the time and thoroughly pisses off your aunt with the amount of gear he continues to buy?  I don’t have that uncle either2 but if I did, he’d probably be Tony McKenzie3

So, here’s everything I know about Tony McKenzie:

  1. He’s British.
  2. He’s a baseball cap enthusiast.
  3. He’s obsessed with building the perfect Fender out of Warmoth parts.
  4. He’s kind of a goofball.
  5. He gets a lot of gear.  No, I’m talking an imperial fuckton4 of gear.

Look, there are plenty of people on YouTube who test out gear, and there are plenty of people on YouTube who demo gear in an attempt to sell it to you.  Tony McKenzie just seems to be a dude who likes playing guitar and thinks other people like playing guitar, too.

Holy crap, Tony McKenzie is Daft Paragon in middle age.

I’m not sure if you’re going to learn a whole lot of  new information from Tony’s channel.  But it’s kind of a fun way to pass an hour.  Also, come on, that Tele is freaking gorgeous.

  1. Which means that he was a musician living in LA between the years of 1983 and yesterday
  2. Actually, I think I’m about two steps away from being that uncle.
  3. Although, I’m actually part of the clan McDonald, not McKenzie so maybe not.
  4. This is, roughly, 1.6 times a metric fucktonne
