I don't see too many accolades myself. He's fairly unknown partially because of the genre of music he played and he's probably even more unknown to the people who like that genre of music because they weren't the country chart toppers.
Well... he did die young. Aside from that, I saw him live from about three feet away. I've seen plenty of accomplished players with more accolade. I feel like Eddy is right there with Eric Johnson, Robben Ford, Derek Trucks, and so on.
Pretty much was the first real new wave of country/rock 'technician' in his time.
That's not what I read. I heard they had a show to play and Eddy never turned up. Billy got Willie Nelson to fill in for the gig.Sad that he was under his dad's thumb, so to speak. There are so many stories go gigs he was offered, should have had, almost had...but he stayed loyal to his dad, and they had a tumultuous relationship. IIRC they weren't playing together when Eddy died, he was doing his rock band full time.
Oh wow, I don't remember that at all. I saw him a few times in the months before his death. He was doing his rock/solo band.That's not what I read. I heard they had a show to play and Eddy never turned up. Billy got Willie Nelson to fill in for the gig.
He was one of the guys who really almost single handedly ushered in that hot, fast, bluesy yet slightly twangy chickin' pickin'/rock n' rollin' style. I'd put him up there with just about any of them, including SRV. You need to remember this was the early 80's, not 2018.
