As a guitarist, this legend (was going to say guy but that'd be just selling him short) has inspired me by describable amounts so hell yeah I made a box. And tbh I love this box, just coyldn't get the text on the back quite right in the end but I still do love the outcome with whole my heart.

The quotes used on the cover:
When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.

Music doesn't lie.

If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.

I don't have nothing to regret at all in the past, except that I might've unintentionally hurt somebody else or something.

All I'm gonna do is just go on and do what I feel.

Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.

Music is my religion.

I used to live in a room full of mirrors; all I could see was me. I take my spirit and I crash my mirrors now the whole world is here for me to see.

The time I burned my guitar it was like a sacrifice. You sacrifice the
things you love. I love my guitar.

Blues is easy to play, but hard to feel.

Excuse me while I kiss the sky.

I’ve been imitated so well I’ve heard people copy my mistakes.

Music is a safe kind of high.

Imagination is the key to my lyrics. The rest is painted with a little science fiction.

It’s funny how most people love the dead, once you’re dead you’re made for life.

When I die, I want people to play my music, go wild and freak out and do anything they want to do.

I wish they’d had electric guitars in cotton fields back in the good old days. A whole lot of things would’ve been straightened out.

Rock is so much fun. That’s what it’s all about - filling up the chest cavities and empty kneecaps and elbows.

You have to give people something to dream on.

When I die, just keep playing the records.

I'd like you, but we don't need two Bronies on this site. Isn't Rosa enough?

All joking aside, this box is actually pretty solid. Good work.

I'm really liking the colors and cover image, but some of the font choiches for the quotes on the cover and the font for the tracklist do feel a bit out of place imo.

Yeah I understand what you mean on the fonts on the front.. Thing is I was going for as much variety not only between fonts but also within the styles of the fonts (handwritten, classic, funky, techno etc.) as for the font of the tracklist, I really like that front and as I used it on the inlay and the big quote on the back I went for cohesion using it on the tracklist as well.
