“it’s kind of been done”

HI THERE. I’M gonna take it a little bit easy this month by simply reprinting a pair of quotes that appeared in the last two issues of Guitar World. They were part of long features, and I just want to make sure they’re not overlooked. Nashville session ace Russ Pahl (September 2019): “The mistake was trying to play like other people. I was playing steel guitar among the best players in the world. They did what they did better than anybody, but they were playing ‘normal’ steel guitar. So I had to stand out. The only way I could do that was to create my own language, learning how to use delays and making up new sounds. At first, I got my hands slapped — ‘That’s too different! That’s so weird!’ Pretty…

No Complaints! [The August 2019 Guitar World] was the greatest issue ever! Eighties metal (George Lynch, Yngwie Malmsteen), the Stray Cats, the albums of 1979, John 5. As a musician from Texas, it’s always great to see ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons getting his due. By the way, I agree with John 5 on “Just Got Paid”! I’m also partial to Degüello (“I’m Bad, I’m Nationwide”). Your headlines were awesome! “Heavy Machinery,” “Algorithm & Blues,” “Plan 5 from Outer Space” and “Damn Right, He’s Got the Blues.” Great work, guys. Keep it comin’! —A.D. Ibarra Mad Respect for Cover Bands In response to Peter L.’s June 2019 Sounding Board letter that bemoans cover bands getting attention: All of us probably know one or more “originals-only snobs” who only like music/artists that do “original” music. We…

honor among thieves

IMAGINE YOU’RE 20 years old and your band is on tour supporting Van Halen — essentially living the dream of every young American rock and roller. Now imagine that your hero, Eddie Van Halen, suddenly sends his people over to your people and asks that you not perform a spotlight guitar solo during your nightly set anymore. Talk about a potentially dream-squashing moment. Nick Perri, guitarist and frontman of the Underground Thieves, doesn’t have to imagine this nightmare scenario, as it’s exactly what happened to him when his band Silvertide was touring with Van Halen in 2004. “I think the first emotion I felt when I heard about it was that I was bummed out,” Perri says. “But then I realized something — that I didn’t have to say yes to…

1 “Lenny” Stevie Ray Vaughan This is one of my favorite guitar performances. I find his tone and sensibility absolutely mesmerizing. 2 “The Wind Cries Mary” Jimi Hendrix Lyrically and sonically a beautiful piece of art. It’s definitely Jimi’s fault that I became obsessed with playing guitar. 3 “I Wanna Be Your Lover” Prince I love the simplicity of the one note on every beat that makes you want to dance as soon as the track starts. Prince graced us with a legacy of incredible music. 4 “Midnight in Harlem” Tedeschi Trucks Band Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks are unbelievable artists in their own right, but together they create magic. Derek’s slide playing is exquisite and Susan was my first female inspiration. I love listening to this song in the evening with a glass of red wine,…

Q: YOU’VE HAD THE GOOD FORTUNE TO PLAY ONE OF ROCK’S ALL-TIME-GREATEST SONGS – “BORN TO BE WILD” – HUNDREDS OF TIMES ONSTAGE SINCE JOINING STEPPENWOLF IN 1994. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR MOST MEMORABLE MOMENTS PLAYING IT? —FRANK KILAUEA One time we we’re playing onstage to a crowd of 20,000 at Sturgis, one of the world’s biggest biker festivals. When we launched into “Born to Be Wild,” thousands of motorcycles started revving their engines at the same time, with dust flying everywhere. That song is the national anthem for bikers and Vietnam veterans. It’s an honor to play it. It’s a perfect rock song with a solid riff and hook, lyrics with attitude and a powerful vocal delivery. Its appearance on the soundtrack of the movie Easy Rider made Steppenwolf famous.…
