Steepwater Band’s Jeff Massey Homors Tony Iommi
Jeff Massey is a proud fan of Black Sabbath and guitarist Tony Iommi, who just turned 69. In Tony’s honor, Jeff grabbed his Gibson SG and ran it through a Fulltone Tube Tape Echo and into an Orange Retro 50 head with matching 1×12 cab to play pieces of the classic two-fer “Jack The Stripper”/“Fairies Wear Boots” along with “Wicked World.” Keep up with Jeff and the Steepwater Band at www.steepwater.com.
Mark Nomad Celebrates Randy California
Opening with a bit of Spirit’s “I Got a Line on You,” Mark Nomad offers an ode to the late Randy California, who would’ve turned 66 today. “I saw Spirit in 1969, and Randy was playing a Silvertone with lipstick-tube pickups,” Mark said. “His beautiful ballad, ‘Nature’s Way,’ was prescient, and is more relevant today than ever.” For this bit, he’s playing a Fender Custom Shop ’59 Journeyman Tele through a mid-’70s Princeton Reverb.
