This month’s article is interactive! That’s right, you have an opportunity to voice your opinion and I’ll publish the collective feedback next month. The topic is: branding.
But here, ladies and gentlemen, here, for the first time in history, I believe, we have a guitar shaped like a – razer! For your entertainment: a 1984 Peavey Razer!
When you talk about great authentic white blues guitar players, you are surely talking about some rarified company. The key word being authentic, and in my estimation authentic white blues guitar player means that when you listen to this person playing you think it’s a black man playing. Stevie Ray Vaughn a great blues guitar player always tried to get that real blues sound. When I saw Stevie Ray for the last time a few months before his death we spoke backstage at one of his shows and I told him “man you sounded like Albert King”, Stevie smiled and said that was the biggest compliment I could have ever given him. That is what we who strum the strings in the blues strive for, to sound like our idols, the great bluesmen. Johnny Winter did this as well as anyone, and proof of this is that he was accepted amongst the great bluesman as an equal, and shared the stage with many of them with great dignity and restraint.
Recording vocals for me personally is always hit or miss. Some days you sing great and some days you feeling like a first day reject for American Idol. You want to try to be consistent and prepared so I’ve got my own routine for practicing my vocals so that when the day comes I’ll be ready to go!
Here is my son Troy standing out front of the famous Rudy’s Guitar Stop on 48th Street. Rudy has built one of the most beautiful guitar stores on the planet. You must go there! Here we pose in front of one of his displays, this one dedicated to Eastwood Guitars.
This past week I was stumbled upon by the one and only THAYRONE-X. Who is he? Well, since that day I have been tuning in nightly to the coolest Internet Radio show on earth – The Bone Conduction Music Show – it’s a white hot mega blast of wig singeing Rock & Roll, hip shakin’ Soul music, and industrial strength Rhythm & Blues. I could go on and on about it, but the best thing to do is just tune-in for yourself. What ever happened to RADIO like this!!??
Rare is, of course, a relative term when you’re talking about anything made by Danelectro for Sears. This ain’t a hand carved arch-top by one of the D’Whoever’s in New York, or a prototype KOA wood, only ever seen by Ted McCarty and the 33rd-level Masons who know the secret Skull & Bones handshake and Vulcan death grips, after all.
