He was a god and gods loved rupert neve designs, or at least this rockstar god did. Funny how his bandmates would so easily disagree. But hey, what did they really know. They were stuck on their own favorites, and that was okay! He had far more important matters to attend to rather than worry about the reaction of his bandmates. After all, today was the day he would purchase Rupert's latest design for the dual channel microphone preamp. He couldn't wait!
He entered the store and started down the isle where he knew they carried the microphone preamps. He stopped at shelf he knew all too well and stared. A sign had been carefully taped over the spot where his microphone preamp should have been. It read: Sold Out. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. His life as he knew it, was over.
