from some Appalachian blogger
Here''s a riff for you sentimental bluegrass pickers. The song, "My Daddy''s Guitar," written by Paul Wilson, is blogged about by Wilson''s brother here.
Bonus: music player with bluegrass goodness.
from the Arizona Daily Star
Jazz phenom-turned-Idol-rocking guitarist Paul Jackson Jr. is so good we give him a pass for having played on Backstreet Boys recordings. Here''s a profile that gives you a little more insight into the PRS slinger who does his thing on one of the most-watched shows in American history.
Bonus: tidbits like this: as a child actor, Jackson made appearances on Good Times and Mayberry R.F.D. Dyn-o-mite!
from the Telegraph (UK)
Okay, scoring tickets to a Foo Fighters show is cool enough, now imagine being there when Grohl busts out some guest musicians with, oh, pretty good chops: Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones. The Telegraph has the story.
Bittersweet Bonus: Page suggested the Zep reunion tour might not happen until the fall of ''09.
