They have had this for over a year.
Nielsen's '58 V is
He may be the only guy in the world with two original Explorers.
He used to tour with a hundred guitars and changes them for almost any song. He has them all lined up on the side of the stage. Of course his multi neck ones get a big reaction live.
So dumb. I'm sorry. But so dumb.
Oddly, I like the whole "fuck to you" aspect of the whole thing.
I never wanted a Hamer.
Rick is the first guy to say he shouldn't of had a chance to become a rock and roll performer. He certainly didn't look like a rock star and he just turned all that around and made himself even more eccentric and oddly appealing. When everyone else had to be ultra cool he was happy to be the one odd one (Not so unusual today but it was very unusual in 1980). He is one of the most entertaining live guitar performers to watch. He has so many little smooth and quirky moves that you don't want to take your eyes off him. You don't want to miss anything.
I remember he used to bang his guitars around a lot, let them fall of the stage, toss them to the side of the stage, etc. when he would go from one to another. I don't remember him doing the whole smash it up thing but I do remember he'd let them tip over and stuff.
Flea is writing a memoir. Anything recounted from the 80's would probably make for a fun read.
Every guitar has its own unique sound. Alex Lifeson will switches a lot. Sometimes you want a floyd, sometimes a fixed bridge, etc. Not to mention different tunings.
LIfeston has so much processing going on that he could probably break a string and nobody would notice.
i realize this is a bit of a stretch, but only just such
Coil tapping and such helps. Page does this. FWIW, it is much easier to make a LP sound like a Strat than vice versa.
not that i necessarily believe this, but do you think it's a function of artists purposefully trying to extract the single coil sound as part of their schtick?
Can Flea remember anything from the 1980s?
