I'm not trying to start a 'battle of the bands' or anything... heck, lots of people had to 'sing for their supper' back then... it's not really comparable by today's standards... I mean, we've got flushing toilets... or perhaps you were looking for one-upsmanship, like so:

"Nothing like sitting here, strumming my lovely twelve-string electric guitar... I remember when I was growing up, all I had was an old second-hand six-string accoustic."

"Six string? You were lucky! We had to play on TWO strings... and we kept on breaking one of them!"

"Huh! You were lucky to have strings... we had to practice fretting with NO strings on our guitar"

"You were lucky to have a guitar! We had to pretend with a broom stick!"

"We used to DREAM of having a broom stick to pretend with!"

We had to pretend to play air guitar, since we couldn't afford actual air guitars!

Dream of using an air guitar?

Oh,it was a wisp of the imagination! A dream,a mere glimpse of thought!

I play bass. Not very Pythonesque I know but it is a Rickenbacker which does sound quite silly if you say it ten times in a row with an outrageous French accent.

"Hey,I have to survive.I put this visor on and somebody thought it was cool."

They picked him off the street and put him into a shelter!

"Hey Geordie! LaForge! Here is your newest dinner from the replicator!"
