i’ve got frostbite on my fingers!

ON JANUARY 30, the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ rooftop performance, my band recreated the Fab Four’s rooftop set on the top level of a parking garage at the Staten Island Mall in NYC. If you listen to fragments of the Beatles’ rooftop show, you can hear John Lennon say, “Me hands [are] getting too cold to play chords.” Well, Johnny didn’t know how good he had it! It was a balmy 45 degrees in London when the Beatles played. When we hit the stage, it was 27 degrees, and the wind made it feel like 19. Our set was brief — “Get Back,” “Don’t Let Me Down,” “I’ve Got a Feeling,” “One After 909,” “Dig a Pony” and “Get Back” (again) — but by the third song, my hands were…

sounding board

A Welcome Blast from the Past I’ve been a loyal reader for 30 years and a subscriber for about eight. I received my February 2019 issue on December 24 and love the “Last Days of Hair Metal” feature with interviews with Lita Ford, Phil Collen, Nuno Bettencourt, Warren DeMartini, George Lynch and Reb Beach. I have nearly every release from all of these artists and have been a fan (of most) since the very early Eighties. What a great story and collective interview this is! Thank you! The Tune-Up with Michael Sweet and Tracii Guns is pretty sweet too. For someone who loves — and will always love — Eighties rock and metal, this issue was a real treat. The “Hair Metal Memories” with Paul Riario is fun too, lol. —Michael R.…

a killer debut album

IN 2017, DAVE Keuning announced he wasn’t planning on touring with his band, the Killers, for the foreseeable future. In several interviews, the guitarist has alluded to his disenchantment with protracted periods away from his home and teenage son. Although still actively sharing song ideas with the rest of the band for whatever project may next materialize, Keuning’s prime focus at the moment is Prismism, his debut solo album, which he’s released under the name Keuning. Keuning handles vocal duties and pretty much everything else on the album — with the exception of some drum tracks. On first listen, it’s surprising how keyboard-heavy the album is — it's certainly not a typical “guitarist’s solo album.” “No, I’d bought a number of different keyboards and I had a lot of ideas that I…

1 “Acorn Tree” Lyle Brewer I love Lyle’s style. The melodies are so beautiful in this song; it makes me feel like it’s autumn in the woods. 2 “While I’m Waiting Here” Billy Strings Witnessing Billy come into his own as a writer has been such a pleasure. He’s one of the best flatpickers I’ve heard! He’s about as honest as music gets. 3 “Via Chicago” Wilco (from Kicking Television: Live in Chicago ) I love the chaos that happens while simultaneously staying together; it’s absolutely masterful to me. It’s a raw, emotional tune that’s so musically unique. 4 “America Religious” Caroline Rose This song came out of nowhere for me. I love the way it drives along with incredible lyrics — true poetry. When I first heard it I wasn’t familiar with her music, but this song is just that…

jim dunlop sr. (1936–2019)

AS A GUITARIST, it’s pretty much a certainty that you will have bought — or at least used — one of the late Jim Dunlop Sr.’s products. Ranging from the humble guitar pick to top-of-the-range effect pedals, there’s virtually no segment of the accessories industry in which Dunlop wasn’t pre-eminent. Dunlop, who was born in Scotland in 1936, moved to California in the Sixties. His first project — one of the earliest guitar tuners — didn’t quite catch on. Undeterred, he moved on to pioneer improvements to the basic capo at a time when the folk-music boom was at its peak, with folkies desperate for a decent tool to enable them to warble in keys the songs were never intended for. Shortly after this came the “eureka” moment, when he was…
