    RIP Bones Hillman/Midnight Oil Bassist

    Sad to see a post from Midnight Oil that Bones Hillman had passed away from Cancer. I saw many a show with Bones holding down the bottom end. He may not have been the songwriter that Peter Gifford was, but he really could sing.

    Mediocre Players: Metronome Practice

    So, the lockdown has resulted in a bit of free time. I'm really not much of a virtuoso, to say the least and speed has always eluded me. This is not a "I found the secret" post, it's merely what I'm working on. I'm trying to get the hook of "Reelin in the Years" down. It's 135bpm and far beyond...

    Johnny Marr - How Soon is Now

    I was always highly skeptical of this song ever coming off live. I can imagine the second guitarist saying "You mean I get to play THAT!"

    INXS Tones

    ...but not the clean ones. My amp is a Vox AC30TBX or a 50 Watt JMP Marshall Combo, and I'm playing in a band that is doing some INXS tunes. I'm looking for a box that can do something akin to the high gain sounds heard on the lead guitar on "Mystify" or "Same Direction" on Listen Like Thieves...

    Kirk Hammett: Quite Impressed

    VH1 Classic is running the 25th anniversary of the R&R Hall of Fame concert, and Kirk Hammet's playing on "Sweet Jane" with Lou Reed just put a big smile on my face. He had a Black Les Paul and it sounded like a Marshall to me. Nice melodic soloing. He's clearly listed to RocknRoll Animal...

    Tom Verlaine's Flash Light

    I've had this album since it came out. Wore out my first copy (vinyl). After not hearing if for a few years, I put the CD in my car the other day and just enjoyed every minute of it. I have no idea if Flash Light is held in high esteem by folks into Tom Verlaine, but I think it's just about...

    Jeff Beck Tribute to Les Paul

    Anyone see this on t.v.? It was on channel 28 in the Los Angeles area Jeff Beck with Imelda May and her band. Very "Crazy Legs". Lots of rockabilly. Brian Setzer and Jeff Beck made a lot of noise together. Beck seemed to get schooled (and loving it) by a Trombone player on one song. All in...

    The Who: Still Incredible

    Last night (November 8) my wife and I took in a Who show at the Nokia Theater in Downtown L.A. What a band. The Endless Wire material was a great addition to the classic repetroire. With the first chords of the first song (Can't Explain) the band just wiped the floor with just about every rock...
