Gary Chester, local Austin scene guitarist != Gary Chester, legendary session drummer.

I didn't bother to post a picture, since you've probably never heard of either one let alone know what they look like.

Jim Reid is a world famous Angus folksinger songwriter whose music evokes the romance and humour of the North East of Scotland.

He is without a doubt an outstanding singer and songwriter, and as a lover of the work of poet Violet Jacob, has set many of her poems to music, including the hugely successful Wild Geese (or Norland Wind), which has now become one of the classic folk songs of the twentieth century.

Jim was a founder member of the legendary Foundry Bar Band, after an apprenticeship in various Scottish groups including The Taysiders. His interest in the travelling folk is well known and he had a very special relationship with the late Belle and Alex Stewart of Blairgowrie.

In the introduction to Jim's recently published book The Better O' A Sang, Billy Kaye wrote "Mary Brooksbank is richt, we're aw better o' a song, especially gin it's sung by a maister like Jim Reid".

Ha, re opening post, I wasn't sure if you meant wrong as in "not John McLaughlin" or wrong as in "not Jon Cougar Mellencamp."

To at least one of my friends, I'm Rick Wright. I used to write for the same paper as a Jim Morrison.

Wrong wrong wrong! Dave Matthews-lite (if you can imagine!).

Actually there was another Dave, or David, Matthews, an arranger who worked with James Brown and all kinds of other people.

I have received email intended for a dude in a symphony orchestra.

I should probably steal the music contained within.

The great Sonny Boy Williamson (who also recorded and/or performed live with the Hawks, Animals, Yardbirds etc) was actually Rice Miller, but hard to imagine he wasn't worthy of the previous SBW's mantle and monicker, though I've never heard much of the earlier guy. As well as Robert Palmer the singer and Robert Palmer the critic (also a musician, with Insect Trust and Ornette Coleman, for inst), there is or was a guitarist of that name; also a guitarist named Paul Williams, along with Paul Williams the early rock critic and Paul Williams the tiny songwriter (of Three Dog Night's "Just Another Love Song" and other early 70s hits I'd rather not remember)Never forget John McLaughlin, the louder-than-Mahahvishnu leader of the McLauglin Group of PBS pundits.

When I worked at Musicland in high school, a woman came into the store looking for a record by Nancy Wilson, and so of course I led her to our selection of Heart CDs.

Ha, after making post yesterday I ended up seeing right dude Jack Wilkins by some coincidence.

This dude's name is Bill Evans too, and to make it more confusing, he used to play with Miles too.

Wethington said the main problem is that Robert Smith, one of the town's three full-time officers, has a history of being untruthful, using questionable force and generating complaints about his harsh demeanor. And Durant's police chief, he says, is aware of the problems but hired Smith anyway last year even though some of them have to be disclosed to criminal defendants.

I want to know who this is, track him down, and write up his life story. This is a promise.

This shouldn't be too difficult LBI, here's his address and phone number.

Damn! This is why you sought this thread (on the 'what was that thread' thread). How did you stumble upon this now? I'm positive this wasn't there initially.

Colour me very surprised that the address and phone number are Belgian, not Dutch.

I am taking this up. Will report back.

I'm sure I read somewhere about his father being a classical harmonica player but I didn't realize what a big deal he was - Henry Cowell wrote a concerto for him, for instance!

Villa-Lobos too!

The Fearless Thread Killers (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 28 August 2019 01:26 (one month ago) link

In fact there is some famous story about Villa-Lobos and Segovia having a fite about technique and playability, and in one version I heard it was represented as being overheard by John Sebastian, Jr. while Villa-Lobos was at his house, although once I checked the dates and it didn’t seem to work.
