    Show and tell!!

    Love the L50 Robert! Iíve always wanted a semi-hollow electric...

    3 of my beauties bellow. 1st, my G&L S500 (Ď90). Leo Fender/George Fullerton design. Alder body, maple neck, hand wound p/uís. Besides the 5 way switch it also has a toggle switch where you can tap the bridge and neck p/uís or all three at the same time. Traded a 70ís strat for it. It sounds more like a strat than a Fender does!(if thatís possible). Put a Tube Screamer between it and a Fender Blues Deluxe amp and itís got an extremely similar sound to SRV.

    2nd is my main axe I play the most. Itís a Paul Reed Smith Custom 22. Quilt maple top, mahogany body and neck through top, rosewood fretboard. The p/uís are Dragon ll hummers. Itís a 2000 model. Cost me a fortune, but I figured it would be the last guitar I buy (I hope!). Itís great clean or over drived.

    Last, my SG Standard. (80ís) . Got it from a guy that was desperate for the cash. It was candy apple red. In great condition, except the finish seemed ďstickyĒ to me, no matter how much I polished, rubbed, played, it just felt tacky. So I took it apart and stripped all the paint on it and refinished it with tung oil. It plays like a dream now, and I think it even sounds better. Itís my open tuning guitar I use for slide or open tuned songs ( like ďKeefĒ Richards stuff).

    And no, the pic isnít reversed. Theyíre all lefties, like me. Iíve got 4 other electrics ( mostly Epiís and a Carvin I built from a kit), but they generally stay cased. These usually suite my sonic needs.

    That's it. It's a fairy tale, not too much syrup, a quality production, cast, and soundtrack.

    Full hollow archtop. My second guitar gifted to me by my parents at age 9 (first guitar was a "Stella").

    2nd is my main axe I play the most. Itís a Paul Reed Smith Custom 22. Quilt maple top, mahogany body and neck through top, rosewood fretboard.
    That's a beauty. Love rosewood fretboards. Just the right amount of bite for my taste.

    That drummer is fantastic! And where the heck did they find Michael Batio to play Highway Star with them?

    They work so well together, the most talented and experienced group of musicians I've seen/heard in ages. A gift from the gods.

    Batio and the rest are Chicago based, he was just sittin' in. I prefer the other guitarist, John Ryan.

    I haven't watched all of their performances, but a few of my other favorites are Tell Mama, Dancing Madly Backward (5/4 time- not easy to dance to!), Ghost Riders in the Sky, You Got That Right, Spill The Wine, Journey to the Center of the Mind, Frankenstein, and of course-

    Yea, they definitely can quit their day jobs..

    Agreed. Ryan is way better suited for their repertoire. Batio is all about speed metal. He does put on a show though playing over and under the neck.

    The drummer was a letter carrier for twenty years, probably contributing to his right foot strength and stamina. Check out Riders on the Storm, another goody.

    Alvin Lee - Keep On Rockin' 1994

    Stutters during the ascending run at the start of his first solo, but the rest is solid.

    Tina Turner - Proud Mary 1972

    Very few "live" performances on Soul Train after '72.

    Professionally recorded by some of the best recording engineers and technicians in L.A. (check out the tone of the skins (percussion)).

    Charlie Watts; dead at 80.

    Well, it’s seaming like I’m posting more obituaries than music these days. Another legend gone. Though never the flashiest or even a hell raiser, Charlie Watts was a rock steady drummer, holding it all together even when band mates were, well, not their best. Laying the groove to some of the best known and loved songs in modern music. His main passion was jazz, but few could fill his rock and roll shoes. We’ll miss you Charlie..

    Here’s a view from his riser, may you have a grand one in the here after…

    There is hopeÖ

    …In the music world. I’m so tired of the death of my musical icons..Then I run across this. Nandi Bushell, 11, challenged Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighter ( previous the drummer for Nirvana) to a “drum off” almost a year ago,
    (Dave talks about it at the beginning of this video). She’s from the UK, Dave invited her to play with his band a few weeks ago at a show they did at The Forum (LA).

    Here, she shows all this energy and passion for music so lacking today. The song is “Everlong”. What’s always made this song for me is the drums in the chorus, and she nails it. There’s quite a few vids of her on YouTube if you’d like to see more.

    Warning, colorful language in the 1st minute or so…

    Really bummed about Charlie Watts. He was a real English gentleman by all accounts, and yes, he kept the Rolling Stones together all these years. My wife and I saw the Stones at least 8 times since 1969. First tickets were $4.50, went to 7 at Akron Rubber Bowl in 1972. She would not even tell me what she paid for Jacksonville in 2019. My favorite tours were 2015 in Orlando, Jacksonville in 19, VooDoo Lounge in Tampa and Steel Wheels in Cleveland 1989. They made the upper deck in old Cleveland Stadium sway in 89 when the played Undercover. The last two tours, they play almost 2 and a half hours, no intermission. Micks voice did crack during the encore in 2019, I always got a kick out of Keith and Ronnie, all over the stage during all the rockers, but finished standing in front of Charlie and yelling out the the next tune.
    He was the driving force for just shy of 60 years....and married to same woman who married him before they were famous!
