Rick Nielsen

...: To the probable amazement of many fans, the album recorded by Fuse (a pre-Cheap Trick band in the late ’60s that included Nielsen and bassist Tom Petersson) has been released on CD. Rick Nielsen: Well, we recorded it about a hundred years ago (chuckles); I knew it was out on CD, but hadn’t seen it until my mailman asked me to sign a copy of it. As I signed it, I realized there were some liner notes on the inside of the booklet, so I read those....

Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter

...t Bob Ezrin and Alice Cooper were envisioning, musically. Any advice for up-and-coming session players, particularly for guitar solos? When you do a session for anybody, know the song! If you take the song personally, your solos will fit and take off as an extension of the song’s philosophy. When you’re doing a solo, don’t just blaze away and hope for something. You want to ask what the song’s doing melodically and let yourself go from there. Solo...

Mick Ralphs

...ed it would be easier to just record new songs and bring the whole thing up-to-date. That would give us the chance to play together and give the record company something they hadn’t heard. Where did the older unreleased material come from? There are some unreleased things from the past. Some is different mixes that were released. There’s a song called “Smoking 45,” which was never released. We recorded that one around the time of the Burning Sky a...

John Leventhal

...hen producing an idiom with well-defined horn lines, guitar licks, and drum-and-bass patterns? For me, it wasn’t hard at all. I’m not interested in rehashing clichés in any genre, great as they might have been. I also consider it a losing proposition in that you’ll never create music as deep and meaningful as the originals. I trusted that our DNA had enough of the language of soul music that we could honor the tradition but still create vibrant mu...

Robben Ford

...ax before taking up guitar an advantage? It’s hard to say if it’s a chicken-or-egg thing. That was the first instrument to really strike me – like, “Man, I want to do that!” So I liked saxophone players. But I didn’t hear that many. I heard a lot more guitar players and started playing guitar two or three years later. The only sax players I’d heard were on surf records and Paul Desmond on “Take Five.” So it wasn’t like I was being influenced, per...

Lynyrd Skynyrd

...that advice onto everybody. – Lisa Sharken Hughie Thomasson with his built-to-taste Fender Stratocaster. Photo by Rick Gould. Hughie Thomasson Vintage Guitar: Who were your main influences in style and tone? How have those influences changed from early on to now? Hughie Thomasson: Well, they’re constantly changing… I started playing guitar when I was eight years old and first saw the Beatles not long after that. Of course, that influenced me and...

Family Feud

...ticularly studio-friendly. My bias went so far as to allow me to purchase P-90-equipped Les Paul Specials by virtue of their two-pickup status, but a Junior’s single-pickup design limited both their versatility and my interest. Boy, was I wrong! With time, I realized the simplicity inherent in the overall design of the Les Paul Junior contributes to the superior tonal characteristics of this instrument and its effectiveness as a rock and blues gui...

Rodney Crowell

...me are co-credits. I remember on an early Emmylou Harris song, you had a co-writing credit with Donovan Cowart, which surprised me, because he’s primarily an engineer, right? Yeah. But he’s a pretty good songwriter, too. From ’72 to ’75 you were writing songs. Were you selling any? Yeah, I started getting them recorded. That’s when I came up with “‘Til I Gain Control Again” and “Song For The Life” and “Ain’t Livin’ Long Like This.” They were all w...

J.J. Cale

...J.J. Cale. Clapton, of course, has recorded several Cale compositions, the best-known being “After Midnight” and “Cocaine,” and Cale’s style has crept into E.C.’s own songs, like “Lay Down Sally,” as well as his guitar playing. But the two had performed together onstage only once before, in Europe, so Cale’s booking agent and business manager, Mike Kappus, invited Clapton to sit in during J.J.’s set. It was answered with a request: “Would it be ok...

Top 50 Guitar Songs of the ’70s

...Les Paul Standard (through a block-logo Marshall) serves up some of his oh-so-sweet trademark slow vibrato. The album version clocks in about a minute longer than the single, and the extra length is mostly guitar solo so cool it’s little wonder why Clapton once asked him, “Hey, can you show me how you do that?” 25 “China Grove” Doobie Brothers, The Captain and Me, 1973 26 Statsboro Blues The Allman Brothers, At Fillmore East, 1971 27 Mississippi...
