The best Thin Lizzy songs prove why Phil Lynott and co were a truly singular outfit responsible for some of the most enduring hard rock classics in history. Could Jimi Hendrix play any instruments other than the guitar?   Tim Peacock Photo: Fin Costello/Redferns When it comes to groundbreaking rock’n’roll outfits, few are more deserving […]

By J. Danniel:- Wilko Johnson, of the British band Dr. Feelgood, has a unique style that allows him to play rhythm and individual notes at the same time. And he doesn’t play with a pick. He admits he got his style from Mick Green of Johnny Kidd and the Pirates, another British band. In his […]

By Bee Seen:- I doubt it—-they haven’t in the last decade. They have never produced new music with Adam. According to Roger, they tried. Brian, Roger & Adam worked on a track in Nashville during a gap in their last US tour schedule: “It was a song that we’d tried to adapt that had come […]

By Russell Spear:- I would rank him, Pete Townshend, right up there with some of the most influential guitarists of the 70s. As a rhythm guitarist and a songwriter he was one of the very best. As a lead guitarist, he was not. He wasn’t a lead guitar player like Jimmy Page or Eric Clapton. […]

He had to play some of the bass parts during the recording of the Electric Ladyland album after Noel Redding didn’t play them to Hendrix’s satisfaction. He played the keyboards on occasion, the above photo taken during a recording session of […]

By AEWD22:- Throughout his career, Ritchie Blackmore has allegedly been quite challenging to work for/with. He has his own specific plans and visions for what he wants and demands that everyone meet his expectations. When he formed Rainbow in 1975, Blackmore wanted a heavy sound for his band. Making Rainbow a Heavy Metal band wasn’t […]

By AEWD22:- Yes and vice versa. When Jimi Hendrix arrived in England in September 1966, he specifically wanted to meet Eric Clapton as he enjoyed his guitar-playing. They immediately hit it off and became friends. Clapton remarked at the time that he was quite impressed with Hendrix’s playing, at a nightclub in London. There aren’t […]

By Robin Meadows:- Freddie received a thorough and rigorous education from his boarding school in India. In the evenings he and a group of boys would even gather to learn more about the arts from one of the teachers. They listened to opera and plays and read and discussed literature. So I don’t believe that […]
