    Laurel Canyon Documentary

    Just saw it today...thought it was wonderful. Truly a time/place where magic happened.

    If you could spend 5 minutes playing a famous player's guitar which one would it be?

    I had an opportunity a few years back to play Jerry Garcia's Alvarez-Yari. It was a pretty special moment, but the guitar itself was badly in need of a setup (the strings were like barbed wire). Still, it was "just one of those moments in time", like catching lightning in a jar…quite magical.

    Fleetwood Mac and Marshall Silver Jubilees

    Silver Jubilee was only in '87, IIRC. Then it came back ('95?) as a Slash amp. Assuming you have an '87 (again, IIRC), then the FM lineup (per Wikipedia) might have been Rick Vito or Billy Burnett. Amps do get bought & sold...maybe Dave Mason? He wasn't in the band very long ('95, odd...

    Derek & the Dominos - I Just Read An Article That I Thought I Would Share

    Not to shift off point, but his drumming on Low Spark (the album, yes, but especially the song) is nothing short of extraordinary. Such a tragic story, that one...

    Derek & the Dominos - I Just Read An Article That I Thought I Would Share

    Now that you've made me stop & think about it, I think I might have to agree: it's just about the only EC album in regular rotation. I have just about everything he's ever done on my iPod, but Layla is just such an important album. 461 is wonderful and I listen to it occasionally. Beano has...

    Derek & the Dominos - I Just Read An Article That I Thought I Would Share

    Duane...what needs to be said?... Radle brought that wonderful Tulsa sound... Jimmy Gordon may have been one of the very, very best drummers of that era... But, IMO, you cannot possibly overstate the importance of Bobby Whitlock in D&tDs. Huge part of the songwriting, huge part of the...

    Long Black Veil

    Not sure about that...didn't Marijohn Wilkin write LBV?

    Stumbled across this...really liked it: Great Intros

    Enjoyed this....thought you might, too...

    First thing that comes to mind when you listen to this.

    What comes to mind? To my mind, Madman is his finest album of all.

    What are your favorite Rolling Stones and Beatles songs, but only one each band?

    Share The Land

    Awesome video! Thank you.... Share the Land was the very fist LP I ever bought. To my ears, it sounds better today than it did back then. Amazingly-talented band. And for my money, and with apologies to Bachman, their best lineup was Cummings / Winter / Leskiw / Kale / Peterson

    Paul C and Stokes mod

    I have no idea. You don't have a stock Fender amp, you have …."something else entirely" by virtue of different voltage & current. You don't risk the PT meltdown I wrote about (in 2008! Has it really been that long? jeeze..), but whatever else your design may risk is unknown to me. If you...

    One of the greatest pop songs ever. God Only Knows

    Perhaps, possibly indeed, a "perfect song"...and nobody can deny that this song is one of Brian's crowning achievements as a producer. But discussing this song without a comprehensive appreciation of the Wrecking Crew would be, to my mind, a huge oversight. Don Randi, Lyle Ritz, Larry...

    Eva Cassidy

    I'm just sitting here at my desk, alone in the office with my iPod. Just listened to her sing Autumn Leaves from her Blues Alley album. Does music get any better than that? Sure, Mahler's 4th is pretty spectacular, but for a complete, simple-yet-perfect performance, Eva simply nailed it...

    Great Joe Pass interview/concert, Don Mock interviews him

    Thank you for this! What a treat...what a treasure. I'm struck by the sad irony of Mock's introduction "Greatest living guitarist", to which Joe says "What do you mean by 'living'?" with that dry Joe smirk... Just a toss-off joke, except by this time, Joe was really ill and had stopped chemo...

    Don Felder Interview - Creepy

    Dan Rather asked him about how he got fired & the lawsuits. I thought DF was extremely reserved in his comments, simply saying that the re-forming of the band was no longer a even split amongst all members and that he agreed to his reduced salary, with the (contractually-documented)...

    Don Felder Interview - Creepy

    I saw the interview and my takeaway was different. I though he was very cordial and complementary with his words towards Frey & Henley and didn't seem to be holding any grudge or hatred. He took a high-altitude pass regarding the lawsuits instead of dragging it into the weeds, which he surely...

    Lowell George

    I saw him in NYC just a day or 2 before he died. Sat right up against the stage. Great show, bu he did NOT look good. I love his solo album.

    Cream reunion concerts -

    I was at the last MSG show in NYC, and all I can say is that it was glorious. A dream-come-true for someone born just a little too late to have seen them in the '60s. As karmadave said in post #16, the mid-boost in the strat + the tweed amps did a darn good job of delivering the goods. I sat...

    What's the biggest show you ever had tickets for, and didn't attend?

    Woodstock. Me, too. My friend's older brother had some tickets (no idea where / how he got them) and he invited his brother (my friend) to go...and I was invited as well. I was 11, and my mother was having no part of THAT. (my friend didn't go either). Honestly, in retrospect, "11-year-old...

    Guitarists, when bassists start talking about chords...

    If your bass player is only that, then yeah...ok. gotcha If you bass player is a musician, then his input should be both valid & welcome.
