Yes, he was pretty specific about that.



I used to do a presentation on the life of Scott Joplin and played selected rags as part of it. It was a lot of fun.

DeanT - Posted - 04/08/2014:  17:19:28


My only claim to fame was jamming with an old black blues man who played in a early 60's rock do-whap group. He had a demo reel to reel tape of the song Hang on Sloopy (it had different lyrics and title, but unmistakenly that song). He said the record company said thanks but no thanks. Not long after that, the song was on the radio by someone else. He said that used to happen a lot in the record industry.

Yeah, I read where Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup had trouble getting royalties for Elvis' version of "That's All Right,Mama". Not Elvis' fault - it was probably Colonel Parker and his hijinks.

Tough business for sure.

I don't know anybody famous, my brother in law played at a little bar 30 something years ago with George Strait, neither one of them were known then, they would swap out one would start then the other close one night then the other way around the next. my bro in law still isn't known

DeanT - Posted - 04/09/2014:  06:21:46


I had coffee and talked airplanes with a total stranger at the Cessna cafeteria one morning. The next day his picture was in the paper. It was Micky Gilly. 

OM45GE - Posted - 04/09/2014:  10:09:45


I met and played with Chet Atkins when I was about 12. I didn't have the sense to be intimidated. He was playing at a benefit concert and one of my father's friends yelled up that he should let me play with him and he did.

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/09/2014:  11:14:03


Wow- that's pretty cool,Bill. Chet was always one of my heroes. I never played with anyone famous,but did get lucky enough to do a couple of gigs ,and a recording, with Willie P. Bennett, a Canadian songwriter/singer. He was mentioned on the Seldom Scene's Live at the Cellar Door album,before they did his song "White Line". Others of his were recorded by Jonathan  Edwards, Stan Rogers.

One of my high school rock bands was supposed to open for Vanilla Fudge (remember them?). We got to the gig and they asked us for our union cards. Uh.................... Never even got to meet the band.

DeanT - Posted - 04/09/2014:  16:34:36


Good Lord I hadn't heard that band name since forever! Set me free why dontchya babe!!!

OM45GE - Posted - 04/10/2014:  03:10:35


I probably wouldn't remember them if we hadn't (almost) opened for them.

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/10/2014:  06:06:05


They did heavy rock covers of pop songs like "You Keep Me Hangin' On" , and one o' my faves, "Some Velvet Morning" - the old Nancy Sinatra/Lee Hazlewood number. Some old songs can time-travel me right back - like who I was going out with at the time........sigh......

Who do you still listen to from "back in the day"?

DeanT - Posted - 04/10/2014:  10:32:57


Foghat, Sweet, Nazareth, Foreigner, Kiss, Hendrix, Clapton, Janice, BTO, Stones, Stones, more Stones, Zepplin, Steppenwolf, Pink Floyd, Johnny Winters, BB, Poison, Molly Hatchet, Ozzy, Old Van Halen, Styx, Meatloaf... a few off the top of my head.

SRV ,   Bad Company

OM45GE - Posted - 04/10/2014:  11:31:47


I'm right there with SRV, Hendrix, Clapton, The Stones. I would add The Beatles, Dylan, Springsteen, Dave van Ronk, Don Edwards, Jackson Browne, John Hyatt, Richard Thompson, Leon Redbone, Lyle Lovett, Paul Geramia, Robert Earl Keen,  the list goes on forever.



A host of blues players like Muddy, Buddy Guy, Coco Montoya, Allman Bros. Roy Buchanan, Guitar Shorty... on and on.

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/10/2014:  12:25:17


Not much of a rock fan- always leaned towards the acoustic stuff. But I did "dig" CCR, Beatles,Dylan's first 5albums, Lovin' Spoonful, Guess Who. And lots of Doc Watson, F &S, Gordon Lightfoot, Ian &Sylvia, Eric Anderson, Tom Paxton, Mississippi John Hurt. I'm probably a bit older than you guys - didn't get into the 70's heavy rock stuff. 

dat - Posted - 04/10/2014:  12:31:49


haven't heard Mississippi John Hurt in years

OM45GE - Posted - 04/10/2014:  13:50:03


You can hear Mississippi John Hurt's influence in Dave van Ronk and Paul Geramia too.

DeanT - Posted - 04/10/2014:  15:58:27


Hate to admit it, but I did have a Beach Boys spell... 

OM45GE - Posted - 04/10/2014:  16:47:41


I used to like their harmonies a lot but I was more of a Stones/Beatles guy.

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/10/2014:  16:56:39


Reminds me of what Howlin Wolf said when they first got him over to England in the early 60's. A British reporter told him the English guys wanted to play blues real bad. Wolf replied that yeah, they DO play blues real bad ! 

OM45GE - Posted - 04/10/2014:  17:13:00


I'd heard that one. He must not have heard John Mayal and the Blues Breakers. 



The Beatles might not have been great blues artist, but I think they wrote some of the prettiest songs and did some rally ground braking stuff. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/10/2014:  17:44:39


Oh yeah - Eleanor Rigby , Eight Days A Week , And I Love Her , Here,There And Everywhere , Michelle, Get Back , and on & on.....Always wondered how much George Martin had to do with their melodies/harmonic structure.

I do a few finger picking guitar arrangements of Beatles tunes, Here, There and Everywhere is beautiful and I'm Looking Through you is a lot of fun. You can really hear the interesting chord changes on a solo guitar.

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/11/2014:  06:09:17


For sure. I had your friend Eric Schoenberg's "Fingerpicking Beatles" book years ago- learned "I Feel Fine". Then got some classical guitar arrangements from different sources. I still play Yesterday and And I Love Her once in a while. I used to busk in the Toronto Subway Stations, and those two used to make me some jingle.  I remember a Chet Atkins ,or was it Homer & Jethro, album - called "Picks on the Beatles". They were wearing goofy/spoofy Beatle wigs on the album cover. lol

One of my bands does a grassed up version of Rocky Raccoon. I lip Synced and air-guitared All My Lovin in a school play, when the song was on the charts. I still remember every word to this day, because of that.

Just passin' through....

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/11/2014:  06:55:21


Did you do the high- pitched "whoo-u-oo" at the end? Always liked that high energy climax ending. Oh hi there Mr Quimby. (why do I feel like high school student all of a sudden? lol )

DeanT - Posted - 04/11/2014:  09:10:59


Hi Niffer!



Yep, lip synced the whole record (45) including the whooo-u-ooo AAaaaAAAaaal my LoooOOOoooovin, I will send to you! My guitar was a tennis racquet with a cardboard guitar cut-out taped to it. 

OM45GE - Posted - 04/11/2014:  10:12:41


Sounds like my first "band". We were about 12 and played air guitars and drums for a long time before we could pester our parents into buying real ones.

 Cause 'Niffer brings out the youth in everybody

DeanT - Posted - 04/11/2014:  10:44:00


we had a piano and organ at our house. No guitars.

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 04/11/2014:  10:55:39


I was listening to the radio the other day (maybe April 1 even) and there was a girl saying that someone had pulled an April 1st joke saying that this store was giving away free air guitars, but only one per customer. A woman came in and said to the girl, "I know you're only giving away one but my son and nephew are both in the service and I really would love to give them each one. Is there anyway that you could maybe give me two?" And the girl said, "I had to tell her that, while I would do just about anything for those who are serving our country, air guitars aren't real and we weren't giving any away."

It's because I'm so immature.

OM45GE - Posted - 04/11/2014:  14:10:37


I'm still trying to figure out what I wanna be when I grow up.

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/11/2014:  14:23:26


You can't stay young, but you can stay immature.  ( I know , I know - a recycled joak- couldn't resist )

DeanT - Posted - 04/11/2014:  14:37:01


I'm in better shape than I was in high school, does that count?

OM45GE - Posted - 04/11/2014:  14:47:09


Counts as something to be proud of instead of the flabby decline most people go through.

I always wanted to be a fireman, just 'cause they could ride on the back bumper of a truck, now that they can't do that anymore , I guess I could be a trash man, they still can ride on the back of a truck

OM45GE - Posted - 04/11/2014:  17:59:35


My son wanted to do the same thing. Then we moved to where we are now and the trash trucks here have a standing bay on the curb side of the cab and the slinger rides in there. He doesn't think that looks like as much fun.

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/11/2014:  18:42:44


Trash trucks here have a mechanical arm that extends out and grabs the containers,then tilts them back to dump the refuse into the truck. No one else besides a driver required. Of course at -30 in winter, they wouldn't get too many folks eager to apply for the job if having to ride outside the cab.
