Gene Baker: talks about Ronnie Montrose tribute

Gene Baker, world renown guitar builder and leader of his band dubbed MGB a.k.a. Mean Gene Band. In this interview Gene talks about his relationship with the legendary guitarist Ronnie Montrose shortly after he passed away 3/3/2012. He talks about how he met Ronnie while working for the Gibson West Custom Shop, then again while Gene worked at the Fender Custom Shop where he built the infamous guitar Ronnie called "Skinny", then under the Baker name he built "The Beast" a B1 model as well as "Red" and "Silver" both Junior models.
He also shares insights on his involvement with a special Ronnie Montrose Tribute Concert as a Celebration of his life in Music to be held at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco CA on 4/27/2012 with a massive list of guest artists. Gene is asked to perform one song playing Ronnie's guitar and amp as well as having his MGB band be the house band for a special VIP after hours concert and all-star jam. The main show will later be aired on VH1 and a DVD available later in the year. This will prove to be an important night to remember in rock-n-roll history.

Walter Trout: Louisiana Red Tribute

Walter Trout delivered this powerful guitar solo, when he performed a song in tribute to his old friend and influence, Louisiana Red, Walter and his band entertained a delighted audience at the MEZZ venue in Breda, The Netherlands, on Sunday March 4th 2012.

Extract from Walter's website:
Walter Trout's passionate new 'Blues for the Modern Daze' (Amazon link below) cuts right to the core of his art and his heart. His 21st album returns the contemporary guitar legend to his hard-core blues roots and finds his songwriting at a creative and personal zenith.
Trout's sixth recording for Provogue Records is his first pure blues album in 23 years as a bandleader, which is astounding given his heavy resume in the genre. Trout spent five years in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers and was a member of Canned Heat, two of the style's supremely influential bands. He's also supported a slew of classic artists including John Lee Hooker, Big Mama Thornton and Joe Tex. Nonetheless, as a front man the six-string virtuoso developed a conflagrant approach to his instrument and a reputation for tornado-strength live shows that led famed BBC disc jockey Bob Harris to call him "the world's greatest rock guitarist" in his influential book The Whispering Years and won Trout the sixth spot on BBC Radio One's list of the Top 20 guitarists of all time.
"I'm reluctant to be called a political songwriter or a protest singer, but things have gotten so far out of hand that it would be irresponsible to ignore them," Trout says. "These are simply the way I feel about things like our society's failure to take care of people and the way the teachings of Jesus are twisted to defend bigotry and ignorance. The cruelty in the
Trout's practical schooling in blues started when he arrived in Los Angeles in 1973 and got gigs behind Hooker, Big Mama Thornton, Finis Tasby, Pee Wee Crayton, Lowell Fulsom, Percy Mayfield and Joe Tex. In 1981 he joined the remaining original members of Canned Heat. But the real turning point was his tenure with British blues giant John Mayall. Trout became part of the Bluesbreakers' lineage of great guitarists along with Eric Clapton, Peter Green and Mick Taylor. Beginning in 1984 he shared six-string duties with Coco Montoya in Mayall's band, creating a flexible guitar dynamic that helped provide the Bluesbreakers a renaissance that returned the group to the apex of the international blues touring circuit.

Laurie Monk: Guitar On Sky interview Truth In Shredding blogger

From Drop Box

Guitar on Sky: People talk about you a lot. If there’s a guitar stuff going on somewhere people are likely to mention your name. Did you think you would become popular, Is that something you thought might happen?

Laurie Monk: I guess I’m not really aware of that. I certainly did not set out to become popular. Maybe when I meet up with guitar players... they know I do a crazy amount of guitar blogging, so I do appreciate any comments or thanks that they give. The overall aim is publicity for the guitar player, but I guess now, the more you blog the more likely it is that you will be noticed. My blog posts are nothing though with out the guitar players. Even if it only sells one CD for a guitar player then it has achieved something. So if I’m popular that must mean I’m doing something right... I hope :).

Also, I’m not normally the sort of guy who is out to seek attention, I’m normally more the sort of guy who is in the background, so it can feel a little strange if someone comes up to you and says hello because of the work that you do. However, that strangeness is far outweighed by the camaraderie that you feel around guitar fans and players, it’s like an international club. There are fans and players from all over the world and the Internet has just made the Earth much smaller along with the ability to communicate and work with people across time zones.

Leslie West,Johnny Winter, Rick Derringer: Rock and Blues Festival tour 2012 announced


Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones once said, "If you don't know the blues... there's no point in picking up the guitar and playing rock and roll or any other form of popular music."

Beginning in late July, the Rock'n'Blues Fest will debut featuring five well-known players who were initially inspired to pick up their instruments due to their love for rock and blues: Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter, Rick Derringer, Leslie West and Kim Simmonds (see tour itinerary below).

"I think the blues will always be around," says legendary blues guitarist Johnny Winter, who will be performing as part of the Johnny Winter Band and headlining the Rock'n'Blues Fest tour. "People need it."

As the story goes, at the age of 17, Johnny went to see B.B. King in his home state of Texas, and requested a turn at the mic. King eventually gave in and handed his guitar to Johnny, who ended up getting a standing ovation for his performance. Needless to say, it wouldn't be long before Johnny had his own legion of followers.

Johnny released his first solo album, The Progressive Blues Experiment, and the music world took notice, leading to his historic performance at Woodstock. Twenty years and several successful solo albums later, he was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame. In the late 70's, he collaborated with another blues legend, Muddy Waters, on three separate albums of Waters', including the Grammy-winning Hard Again (1977). Over the years, he put out approximately two dozen solo albums including his most recent highly-acclaimed recording entitled, Roots, which he and his band recently performed a track from on Late Show with David Letterman. Named as one of Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, Johnny Winter still remains one of the top blues/rock guitarists touring today.

Joining Johnny for the Rock'n'Blues Fest "ride" will be his younger brother, Edgar Winter, who has certainly met with considerable acclaim in his own right with such monster hits as "Free Ride" and the chart-topping rocker, "Frankenstein."

"As far as I'm concerned, blues and jazz are the great American contributions to music," comments Edgar, who will be bringing the Edgar Winter Band along for the almost two-month trek.

A multi-instrumentalist (keyboards/sax/percussion) whose music encompasses many different genres including rock, blues, jazz and pop, Edgar first hit the national spotlight with his early recording of "Tobacco Road," featured on his 1970 debut album, Entrance. Edgar would soon form the band White Trash and release two hit albums in '71 and '72 titled, Edgar Winter's White Trash and Roadwork. Hot on the heels of the certified gold album, Roadwork, Edgar would put together an entirely new outfit called The Edgar Winter Group that would originally feature guitarist Ronnie Montrose. The band's first effort, They Only Come Out at Night, would spawn both the hit singles, "Free Ride" and "Frankenstein," and remain on the charts for an incredible 80 consecutive weeks. The pivotal album would eventually reach double-platinum status, selling more than 2 million copies. More recently, Edgar achieved chart success in 2003 with the song, "Dying To Live" -- featured as "Runnin" (Dying to Live) in the film Tupac Resurrection -- as the Eminem-produced song hit #5 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hop Singles sales chart. With over 20 albums and numerous collaborative efforts to his credit, Edgar Winter has not been satisfied to ride the wave of popular music stardom. His music has been featured in several major national television and radio and advertising campaigns. In addition, his music can be heard in no fewer than fifteen film and television projects.

Next on the bill is rock guitarist Rick Derringer, who's had an illustrious career as both a solo artist and critical band member.

Air guitarists will surely be out in force when Rick breaks into his well-known rock anthem, "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo." The song continues to be a staple on rock radio and was featured in several movies including The Spirit of '76, Rush, Stag, What A Girl Wants and the cult classic, Dazed and Confused. It's a little known fact that years before his success as a solo artist, Rick had a band at the age of 17 called The McCoys that had a #1 hit in 1965 called, "Hang on Sloopy." The song would eventually be knocked out of the top spot by The Beatles' "Yesterday." A year after its release, The McCoys would find themselves as the openers for the entire Rolling Stones American tour. Although written and recorded a few years earlier, Rick released his most famous version of the song in 1974 and never looked back... In 1977, he would appear on the last Led Zeppelin North American Tour. In the years to follow, Rick would perform with such artists as Alice Cooper ("Under My Wheels"), Steely Dan ("Show Biz Kids" and "Chained Lightning"), KISS, Todd Rundgren and Weird Al Yankovic among others including both Johnny and Edgar Winter. From 1986 to 1992, Rick would tour with Cindy Lauper and co-write a song from her True Colors album titled, "Calm Inside The Storm." Before embarking on last year's Hippiefest tour, Rick toured Europe with Ringo Starr as a member of Ringo's All-Starr Band.

Although perhaps best known as a founding member of the band Mountain, guitarist Leslie West began his musical career with an R&B/Blue-eyed soul rock outfit called The Vagrants, who would quickly enjoy a few hits. Shortly after the formation of Mountain with bass guitarist/producer Felix Pappalardi, keyboardist Steve Knight and drummer N.D. Smart in 1969, the band would find themselves performing on day two of the legendary Woodstock festival in August of that year. Not too long after the event, new drummer Corky Laing would join the fold and the band would release their first Billboard Top 40 single, "Mississippi Queen." The rest is rock history as the song would be played on rock radio for years to come. Mountain would follow-up that hit with the Jack Bruce-penned, "Theme for an Imaginary Western," one of the eleven songs they performed at Woodstock. Considered one of the pioneers of heavy metal, Rolling Stone magazine once identified them as a "louder version of Cream." In the early seventies, Mountain would temporarily disband with Leslie and Corky collaborating with Creem bassist Jack Bruce for a cutting-edge group called West, Bruce and Laing. In 1976, West would play guitar for the track, "Bo Diddley Jam" on Diddley's 20th Anniversary of Rock'n'Roll all-star album. In 2005, he contributed to Ozzy Osbourne's Under Cover album, performing guitar on a remake of "Mississippi Queen." The following year, he immersed himself in the blues, once again, with his latest solo album titled, Blue Me, on the Blues Bureau International label. Later that year (2006), he would be honored by being inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame. In addition to fronting Mountain, Leslie continues to record and perform on his own.

Considered one of the architects of British blues, Kim Simmonds began performing professionally in London in the mid-60's after learning how to play guitar by listening to his brother's blues records as a teenager. As leader and founder of the legendary blues rock band, Savoy Brown, he has 49 album releases currently available and continues to tour all over the world with the band as well as a solo acoustic act. In 1967, the band would help propel the UK blues boom movement that brought blues music back to the United States, invigorating the style forever. In the process, Savoy Brown became part of the framework that launched the rock and roll music of the 1970's, with their vast influence stretching into modern rock as we know it today. In 2011, the band celebrated its 45th anniversary by releasing a new CD titled, Voodoo Moon. Later in the year, Kim would release his most recent effort, Out Of The Blue, a collection of varied material that placed him in a new setting as both singer and songwriter. Among the most loved, most respected and longest running of its genre, Savoy Brown is one of the magical names in blues rock. Kim Simmonds will be performing the best of the best at this year's Rock'n'Blues Fest.

Due to their close involvement with each other throughout their careers, it's likely that various artists on the forthcoming Rock'n'Blues Fest will unite on stage to perform some unexpected classic songs together.

One can only hope.

Five great musicians... one incredible tour of rock and blues music.

Jim Marshall: dies aged 88 RIP

Heaven Goes to 11

One of Milton Keynes most famous people, Jim Marshall, has died at the age of 88. JIM Marshall OBE, the pioneering inventor behind Marshall Amplifiers and the man known as ‘The Father of Loud’, has died aged 88.

Mr Marshall devised and sold his first amps from a small shop in Hanwell’s Uxbridge Road in the mid 1960s. Guitar legend Jimi Hendrix was just one of the people who bought an amp from him personally.

His name lives on all around the world... RIP

3 days. 22-24 Mar.
It's first time my son Boogie met uncle Andy. Uncle ANDY sang some ' BOOGIE ' song for little Boogie . we talked music , Andy signed on my guitar / my Strawberry Andy BB Preamp / my Mesa Lonestar footswitch & other stuff.
Andy played my '99 AT-100 and let me played his '94 AT-100, I played 'Deliver Us' from his 'Resolution' cd for the intro, then Andy stopped me and turned on the backing-track and let me played again from the start. I played half of song and throw the guitar to him, he played till the end. Andy enjoyed so much and said...AE Timmons everything is in his smile...such a great great honor to play music with him again . thanks to ANDY & after that he said he feld njoy to play guitar and asked if there any song we wanted to hear. So...we set up a private guitar show and jam session. So cool...In third day, we took Andy go on tour Bangkok a bit.
