In 1975 they toured with a hired guitar player, a percussionist who was taking over some drum parts, a keyboarder who was singing two of his own songs in the middle of the show and doing synthesizer intros for acoustic songs like Wild Horses or Angie ( just imagine the sacrilege Matt Clifford would do a string intro for Wild Horses instead of guitars ...). And till today the 1975 tour is the favo

Perhaps that was the time the horn players got their chances. Jim Price released a record in 1971 on A&M records (Kids nowadays ain‘t got no shame ). Produced by Jimmy Miller , recorded with the Stones Mobile and Nicky Hopkins, Bobby Keys , Klaus Voormann and Jim Keltner are on it .

So sad to hear. Paolo Rossi was part of two unforgettable days of my life in 1982. The Stones played two stadiumgigs in a row in Cologne at Müngersdorfer Stadium , July 4. and 5. I was blown away , two great stadium parties with all these fun people from Holland. And right in the middle of these two concerts I saw the lengedary Italy vs Brazil on tv in an Italian restaurant in colognes old town

I can recommend the American books from Hal Leonard . These „recorded versions" books are very detailed with all notes and transcriptions. Many years ago I got Exile and Some Girls. There are books from any other artists . Nothing for beginners , fun for average players. Some Girls ISBN 0-7935-3854-8 Exile ISBN 0-7935-4094-1 Have fun !

QuoteRocknroll1969 Eddie Van Halen invented that style of playing. When I first heard his playing it was incredible. Nobody did the string tapping before him. What others did does not come close to what Van Halen did. Good old Harvey Mandel did it way before him , same area , but only a very few people listened to his records ..

QuoteStoneage Maybe so, Mathijs. But I think they are in different genres of rock. Bands like Van Halen and Bon Jovi are more into hard rock or poodle rock. Which is by nature more eccentric and expressive than classic rock. More showmanship so to say. If you follow me? Haha , Van Halen were on tour in Europe in 1995 and they had a package with Bon Jovi , at last in Germany , Waldbühne Berlin

Sag shocking news . They never toured Europe regulary or big. Just here and there . Could see them with DLR in the eighties and one more time with the unpopular Van Halen III with Gary Cherone as singer. Small venue in Berlin , Germany . No glamour , just Rock’n’Roll. Eddie 5 meters away , just like a private concert. They were superstars on that tour in 1998 and they played their asses of . No b

Give the Blues Junior IV a chance . I owe this amp. It‘ s different to all other Blues Juniors . Now with a 12‘ Celestion speaker , warmer sound and better reverb. Sounds terrific with a stonesy Telecaster , works great with pedals and easy to carry. Sounds great even on bedroom levels . Tom

The flow in Brian's riff, when he slides up to the A and C#-notes, is gone. Use the G and B-string, GE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvIIM2AZgCA]The Last Time Ed Sullivan Well , I think he ha

I feel sorry for American students. The world outside of the US doesn`t exist for many of them. Nothing knew , experienced it for many many years. The rest of the world knows the difference between these flags. I am glad it`s a Norwegian flag and not a "America comes first " flag. Greetings from Germany.

By the time of registration I listend to Muddy Waters' Electric Mud recording. So beside Muddy there are some more Stones relations: a coverversion of Let'Spend The Night Together is on that record, it was a project of Marshall Chess ( former President of Rolling Stones Records) and Gene Barge is playing Tenor Sax (later playing sax on the 1982 tour)..enough Stones connections to end th

As far as I know Jimmy used a b-bender guitar for playing his solo . He had a Tele and even a Les Paul b-bender. Makes me think if Ronnie got the inspiration by that session for using a b-Bender on his own (ESP model) . Tom

So sad to hear! I hoped to see him again. Followed him since his Beyond Cool album in 1993. Could see him live at Quasimodo,Berlin in 2003 . One of the most impressive club gigs I ever attended. What a musician. Kick Ass Funk,Blues, guitar and Organ player. Some Stones connection: he did a coverversion of Lucky In Love on his 2003 album Black Midnight Sun, produced by Bill Laswell.... 55 years,

QuoteSpud Interesting points Tom. Yes I agree...the better the HiFi system the more obvious some of these variances are. (Indeed, the whole rationale of high compression brick wall mastering is to cater for the lowest common denominator of low quality and/or portable playback equipment.) I'd also agree that the original ABB release on vinyl sounded better than the CD... But the n

QuoteSpud The bottom line with these is that , assuming they are the same as the ones in the boxed set, they are on the whole very good. Do the earlier ones better or even equal the original analogue pressings ? No they don't ...but they are probably the best vinyl reissues of all these albums... to have been commissioned in the digital age and the ones which were digital from the ou

I love the actual version of the Fender Blues Junior IV. Different from all other versions , 12“Celestion and it works great even in an appartment . Smooth sounding , crunch ... , just great . Works fine with pedals . So for adjusting the volume , you can do it with a pedal anyway . Sadly no headphone jack . Cheers , Tom
