Re: Joe's Interviews

Bumping the last two posts which are Seymour Duncan interviews with Joe.  In one 'Squire' Joe talks about the 'security' around his 'girls'.

I just think its cool that these Les Pauls that might otherwise be sitting in someones room, in a case, on a wall or wherever, are getting a chance to be heard again. It doesn't matter if Joe owns them all, its just great they are being given the opportunity to be guitars again and not showpieces. And I'm not implying they all or the ones he's borrowing are collecting dust and value, but now they can be used as the tools they were designed to be used as yet again for a newer generation. -Seth

Agree with you 100%, it was a huge thrill to see 'Sandy' up close and in action in Pittsburgh!

Re: Joe's Interviews

Love the theramin section at the end, the sounds you get out those things you could do a wicked intro to some epic.
Great link thanks, that was most enjoyable

Re: Joe's Interviews

I love the part about the theremin - I never realized it was all in the hands and really has nothing to do with a guitar (although he used to leave one untrimmed string on the baritone in John Henry and do something with that with the theremin - whatever).  Would love to play with one sometime.  Ever since the first time I saw Joe using one of these I have been fascinated by it (love the faces he makes when using it).

Too bad about the slide - he sounds just fine to me playing it.  Thanks for sharing this.

Re: Joe's Interviews

Thanks for the link. I really got an understanding of all the nuances of the amps and pedals that make my ears smile. The Theramin is cool and I thought his slide description of "nails on chalkboard" was hilarious. No wonder he never does that much.

Re: Joe's Interviews

More of a Free direction. Works for me.

Re: Joe's Interviews

I think Joe has the right perspective on the BCC thing.  Though I'll bet the BCC hardcore fans wish he would give BCC a bit more of his time.  Only so much Joe to go around.  Don't want him to stretch until he snaps.

Play like you've worked at it, and don't worry about sounding like your influences.  You can't cheat on them, or your practice, anyway.  If you've worked hard at your skill, your audience will know it.

Just be patient is what I advise everyone.  Don't be gossip crazy either.  The guys all want to make music that is WORTHY, so, worthy is worth the wait!

Re: Joe's Interviews

That statement he made about the tour last year running him into the ground says it all. He's learned that pacing his energy is very important. There are so many irons in the fire it is hard to grab a cool handle. I'm as big a fan of BCC as any but I'll defer pleasure to when he can fit it in. Meanwhile, BCC3 is in the can! big_smile

Re: Joe's Interviews

Look for BCC next summer.  I'd say the window will open then.

I have not read all the posts, I am taking a short break from work - are you saying BCC is touring the U. S.  next summer?
