That was the same interview I saw, and yes Clapton is clean beyond telling.



He's right about Stevie channeling. The music just flowed through him.

DeanT - Posted - 07/19/2012:  15:55:09



My fav blues man now adays:



 


OM45GE - Posted - 07/19/2012:  16:21:43



Nice playing. He's from Louisiana right? Interesting old Thinline Telecaster.

DeanT - Posted - 07/19/2012:  17:25:04



I have no idea where he's from... I found out about him 20 years ago when he came through town doing a Jimmi tribute. He knows Jimmi, that's for sure.

OM45GE - Posted - 07/19/2012:  17:30:43



I like that he doesn't seem to be using any effects, just him and the guitar.

DeanT - Posted - 07/19/2012:  19:28:23



I like him for one reason because he doesn't blow out all his talent every second (something I hate about some bluegrass banjo). He can tastefully sand bag and then rip it at the right moments. I also love a bluesman names Gary Moore, who's "still got the blues" is by far the most moving piece of music I've ever heard... but the more I've gotten into his other stuff, the more he over plays...it's like man rest sometimes... this aint bluegrass!



 


OM45GE - Posted - 07/20/2012:  04:01:34



Wow, that sent shivers up my spine.

dat - Posted - 07/20/2012:  07:12:19



after all those, I figure I'll still keep on plunking at my banger and hopefully one day play a song halfway smooth all the way through

OM45GE - Posted - 07/20/2012:  07:31:48



It does keep me humble.

DeanT - Posted - 07/20/2012:  07:47:34



and my fingers sore

dat - Posted - 07/20/2012:  07:52:51



I clipped the tips of my middle finger and pointer finger on my left hand with a tablesaw blade,  not bad, but enough to take off the fingerprints and bleed pretty good.    it'll be a few weeks before I even pick up my banjo again

OM45GE - Posted - 07/20/2012:  08:29:49



Ouch! Thank goodness it wasn't worse.

dat - Posted - 07/20/2012:  08:32:09



sure makes you pay attention to how careless and comfortable you get with machines

OM45GE - Posted - 07/20/2012:  08:35:15



I'll say. If it can cut through a piece of oak it won't even notice your hand.

dat - Posted - 07/20/2012:  08:44:18



youtube.com/watch?v=cTUOhYcw4ZY 



I need to get one of these



 



 

DeanT - Posted - 07/20/2012:  10:49:49



that's a trusting dude

dat - Posted - 07/20/2012:  12:54:42



more so than I would be, I sure wouldn't want to test it

OM45GE - Posted - 07/20/2012:  13:34:43



I didn't need to be told not to try that at home.

dat - Posted - 07/20/2012:  13:51:20



it it was safe, you could try it at home

OM45GE - Posted - 07/20/2012:  15:39:54



Systems do fail! It's a great idea and certainly safer than not having it, but I don't know - stick my hand in a spinning saw? I don't think so.



Did you hear they guy say there's an average of 10 saw caused amputations a day?

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 07/20/2012:  16:15:47


I remember my dad saying that he read or heard somewhere that on the railroad they sometimes judged whether to hire a man on whether he was missing fingers or not. If he was, that meant he had experience and they'd hire him right off.

That was for connecting the cars, I think.

OM45GE - Posted - 07/20/2012:  16:24:44



Now that's a scary selection process.

DeanT - Posted - 07/20/2012:  17:21:41



I think I'd rather drive the train than hook them together

OM45GE - Posted - 07/21/2012:  04:39:32



Before they developed knuckle style connectors, they used have to stand between the cars and drop a pin in place as they came together.

DeanT - Posted - 07/21/2012:  08:38:33



and shovel coal!

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 07/21/2012:  14:20:01


And walk uphill to school in the snow....

DeanT - Posted - 07/21/2012:  15:49:43



with bare feet

dat - Posted - 07/23/2012:  06:02:37



And milk the cows and pick the peaches before they left in the morning

DeanT - Posted - 07/23/2012:  07:07:30



we had to milk the goats. Really.

dat - Posted - 07/23/2012:  08:14:25



I never have tried goat milk,  the goat cheese has a bite to it,  didn't really care for that

OM45GE - Posted - 07/23/2012:  08:44:40



I love goat's cheese. I've never had just goats milk though.

dat - Posted - 07/23/2012:  10:39:14



I'll try it again , I normally don't quit on a food after one try

DeanT - Posted - 07/23/2012:  11:04:42



To this day I still shake a milk jug before pouring a glass. I grew up on raw goats milk.

OM45GE - Posted - 07/23/2012:  13:24:25



My mom used to have us pour off "the skim" as she called it. She used it in her coffee.

dat - Posted - 07/23/2012:  14:19:40



I still shake the jug, even though we haven't had any cream in the milk since I was little

OM45GE - Posted - 07/23/2012:  15:18:30



I catch myself doing it and stop.

DeanT - Posted - 07/23/2012:  16:13:03



I don't miss the farm at all...

OM45GE - Posted - 07/24/2012:  03:24:29



We lived on what used to be a chicken farm but it was just fields when I was growing up. Dad was a country lawyer.

dat - Posted - 07/24/2012:  06:26:14



was his name Atticus?  Did he get paid in hickory nuts and shoot rabid dogs?

DeanT - Posted - 07/24/2012:  07:00:02



We had a party phone line and could listen in on our neighbors conversations...

dat - Posted - 07/24/2012:  07:19:41



we had a party line too, and when you called somebody all you had to dial was 4 numbers

DeanT - Posted - 07/24/2012:  07:28:11



And the chord between the phone and hand piece wasn't springy...

dat - Posted - 07/24/2012:  08:41:29



Yeah, it was cloth/ canvas wrapped wire

DeanT - Posted - 07/24/2012:  10:15:47



and usually frayed

dat - Posted - 07/24/2012:  10:24:06



And the handset weighed about 4 or 5 pounds

DeanT - Posted - 07/24/2012:  10:41:51



made out of a black mystery material

dat - Posted - 07/24/2012:  12:47:53



THAT LOOKED LIKE PLASTIC BUT WAS HEAVIER THAN LEAD

DeanT - Posted - 07/24/2012:  14:48:38



Finger in or out of the hole as the dial went backwards?

dat - Posted - 07/24/2012:  15:02:55



depends on what the next number dialed would be,  if it was close I would leave it in, if it wasn't I would pull it out and hold it over the next number 'till the rotor stopped then stick it in and dial

DeanT - Posted - 07/24/2012:  15:57:04



I think I could dial faster than I could do a touch tone... I dream of having a phone that big these days!
