alvin lee: 50 years after

WEIRD AS IT sounds, I’ve actually been waiting for 2019 to come along so could I give a 50th-anniversary shout-out to the late, great Alvin Lee of Ten Years After, one of the stars of the August 1969 Woodstock Music and Art Festival. Lee was the man behind “I’m Going Home,” one of the guitar highlights of the entire Woodstock experience. I mean, it’s right up there with Santana’s mesmerizing set, Jimi Hendrix’s “The Star-Spangled Banner,” Richie Havens’ thumb-fretting madness and Pete Townshend’s crazy-ass Gibson SG acrobatics. The performance was a nod to vintage blues and Fifties rock — and Lee’s Gibson ES-335 and lightning-fast fretwork were the stars. First, go track down the video on YouTube (search for “Woodstock - Ten Years After - I’m Going Home(Live)”; Lee’s solo starts…

sounding board

Introducing Fleetwood Mike! I just got the latest issue [January 2019] in the mail yesterday and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw Mike Campbell on the cover. I thought it was a misprint of sorts. I’m glad to see that the new editorship is not playing to the metal-heads with the popularity bullshit, which was so common in the past, and is now having guitarists such as Nita Strauss, etc., on the cover, thus displaying a range of diversity for readers of all ages and genres. Mike is so long overdue for a story and cover in these pages, but too bad it took the death of Tom Petty for GW to finally recognize him. For future issues, how about having some cover stories on Buddy Guy, Mick Mars, Nancy…

at last, the beginning

ONE OF THE greatest records ever made just got better. Jimi Hendrix’s third release, 1968’s trail-blazing double album, Electric Ladyland, is acknowledged as a masterpiece in the history of popular music and is revered as the guitarist’s crowning achievement in the studio. It represents the moment when Hendrix first seized full artistic control of his music — and he viewed it as a new beginning. Now, a half century since its release, Legacy Recording/Sony Music has teamed up with Experience Hendrix LLC to offer a truly incredible, expanded 50th-anniversary Electric Ladyland box set. The Electric Ladyland Deluxe Edition includes a newly re-mastered version of the original album. Engineer Bernie Grundman worked from the original two-track master analog tapes for which an all-analog direct-to-disc transfer was done for the audiophile-quality 180-gram vinyl…

what 's on my playlist ken susi of unearthed

1 “Eighties” Killing Joke Geordie Walker is an underrated and revolutionary guitar player. This song sounds a lot like Nirvana's “Come As You Are,” huh? Well, everyone rips off Walker! If you like catchy melodic guitar riffage, this is your band. 2 “Scarified” Racer X How can you go wrong with Paul Gilbert and Bruce Bouillet? My older brother introduced me to this band when I was in elementary school, and this collection of music has certainly held up over time. 3 “All I Had I Gave” Crowbar Kirk Windstein has the best right hand of all time! This album, these riffs and that tone started my quest to play modern heavy metal guitar. After thousands of dollars spent on gear and years of practice, I still can’t play or sound like Kirk. It’s in…

IN 2017, JOHN McLaughlin, 76, the founder of the visionary Mahavishnu Orchestra, announced that he’d tour North America one final time. He was joined on the 25-date Meeting of the Spirits tour by guitarist Jimmy Herring and his band, the Invisible Whip. Herring opened, then McLaughlin played, and then both bands — nine musicians in all — took the stage for a set that leaned heavily on Mahavishnu’s classic material from their Birds of Fire, Inner Mounting Flame and Visions of Emerald Beyond albums. One of these sets, which had grown men weeping, is captured on the new album Live in San Francisco (Abstract Logix). “John McLaughlin is just larger than life, and hearing Mahavishnu Orchestra was life changing for me,” Herring says. “I hadn’t realized anyone could play like that.…
