JamBands is where it's at (Phish, Gov't Mule, Widespread Panic). Love boating, winter skiing and motorcycles. I've attended over 150 live concerts and I'm the biggest fan of Warren Haynes alive.
It appears to be an easy, straight forward swap, but can I salvage the left hand grip or do I need to cut it off?1 AnswerMotorcycles10 months ago
Does anyone think ABB will seek new guitarists and carry on or is this the end of the road? Warren and Derek are two of the best guitarists alive today and they will continue to prosper on their own and in their individual bands. My fear is that the Allmans will cease to be after 45 years.2 AnswersRock and Pop7 years ago
I needed a home library for my music and ITunes looks great, but I don't have an IPod. My MP3 player is a Sandisk. Is Itunes compatible with other manufacturers players?2 AnswersMusic & Music Players9 years ago
(Stevie Nicks, Steve Miller, Dave Mason, Cher, Boz Scaggs, and the Allman Brothers Band, among others), in addition to issuing solo albums on his own. Hasn't anyone ever heard of the guy? He's always been one of my favorites.2 AnswersRock and Pop9 years ago
While Bob Wier and Phil Lesh are touring with the band Furthur, the Dead's old rhythm section is on the road as The Rhythm Devils. The band lineup is as follows:
Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, Keller Williams (guitar, vocals) in July and Tim Bluhm of the Mother Hips (guitar, vocals) on later dates, Davy Knowles (guitar, vocals), Sikiru Adepoju (talking drum), and Andy Hess (bass). So I just heard some of there live stuff and I like it better than Furthur. Why has nobody told me about this "other" band?5 AnswersRock and Pop1 decade ago
The Allman Brothers Band was the only group to have four guitarists in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the Top 100 Guitar Players of all time. Who, in your opinion is the best:
1. Duane Allman
2. Dickie Betts
3. Derek Trucks
My favorite is Warren, but of course Derek is the best slide player alive today. Seems Duane is the one everyone always mentions. Who's your favorite?
I always thought that Jeff Tweedy was one fantastic guitar player, but now they have Nels Cline who just blows me away. Check out this clip from their DVD:
Nels has to be one of the best guitarists in the business. Anyone else agree?
I just received an email about this show:
featuring Billy Cox, Joe Satriani, Sacred Steel

I was looking up info on Jimmy Herring, the guitarist from Widespread Panic and I found this note on his favorite guitar:
Jimmy's "go to" guitar is a custom shop Fender Stratocaster built by Gene Baker in 1993. Unlike most Fender guitars, it is equipped with two humbuckers rather than 3 single coil pickups, and it has Dunlop 6000 fret wire (the highest guitar frets that are made).
Question: What is a fret wire and what do they mean by "the highest"? Does it give the guitar a higher pitched sound?4 AnswersRock and Pop1 decade ago
His initial recordings from the mid-'60s — featuring the legendary, racially integrated first edition of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band — were eclectic, groundbreaking offerings that fused electric blues with rock & roll, psychedelia, jazz, and even (on the classic East-West) Indian classical music. The East West album came out in 1966 and still sounds good today. The band featured Elvin Bishop and Michael Bloomfield. What a great line up.7 AnswersRock and Pop1 decade ago
