Re: “Inside Brian Wilson

Thanks Darian Sahanaja! I watched the documentary showing your total involvement and encouragement in getting Brian to finally complete, produce and bring Smile to the world. You are very dedicated and obviously a close friend.

I can't believe that I will be able to shake his hand in a couple weeks and thank him for all his music and his story has done for my life.

Re: “Inside Brian Wilson

The late Terry Melcher may have summed up best when observing that if Brian Wilson had lived in the 1700's, he'd have been revered as one of the greatest musical geniuses that ever lived. Unfortunately, he existed in our disposable era when stardom is fleeting and celebrity is acknowledged with little or no thought.

Re: “Inside Brian Wilson

There will NEVER be enough that can be said bout Brian Wilson. Calling him the greatest is even an understatement. Brilliant beyond any recognition, his music on a level thats ingrained permanently and infinitely.

Re: “Born under a bad sign

It would have been nice to show a newer "clean and sober" video and photo instead of using ones from his destructive days. That would have been more appropriate considering the slant of the article.

Re: “Hello it’s him

What ? No mention one can see Todd Rundgren live in Colo Springs (perhaps only the 2nd time in his career in the Springs! He will be performing April 14th 2015 at Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs to promote his forthcoming release titled ‘Global’. Hear Global on Spotify: https://play.spotify.com/album/6qN2zOD3KBUtQ7fEv5AchH

Re: “Hello it’s him

Bet he'd trade a little 'substance' for $tardom related to his real estate issues.

Re: “Strange Alliance

Why would I pay $22 to see someone that doesn't even have a torrent of their music online? I can't find anywhere to listen to his music to see if I would WANT to go...

Re: “Two guitars and a microphone

"Twin lead guitars have long held a place in the rock tradition. You'll find them on everything from Lynyrd Skynyrd..."
Too bad reporters/journalists/writers or whatever they call themselves seem to lack a certain trait these days which is the notion to research and educate. When that happens, history is lost and credit where it is due goes unpaid.
Skynyrd took a path already blazed by The Allman Brothers, who were the first ones to have southern roots and be recognized by the mainstream. Actually, one could not help but pay heed when the Brothers came on the scene. One of their trademarks was the twin lead guitar attack along with playing major scales over chord progressions as opposed to the standard rock/blues minor scale. The major scale gave the sound a country feeling, but the rhythm was rock. It has been called "Southern Rock" but Gregg Allman will say that term is like saying "Rock Rock". Rock was indeed a creation from southern born and bred musicians and rooted in the Blues.
The most notable song to feature twin lead guitars was "Blue Sky" (Allman's "Eat A Peach" LP) written by Dickey Betts. Betts is a guitarist who can play circles around most other guitarists and in many different styles. He also composed the instrumentals that were the Allmans biggest hits. Dickey was overshadowed by Duane Allman's legacy that grew from his untimely death. Betts, in the minds of FM radio listeners simply did not exist and was relegated to the shadows. Many don't realize that after Duane's death, Betts performed Duane's parts and his own in their songs on stage for some time until other guitarists were finally hired. Without Duane the Allman's had a gap, but when they fired Dickey a decade or so ago they became nothing more than a "tribute" band.
Dickey Betts however did not create the twin guitar technique (which would be two guitarists playing two different notes in a scale simultaneously creating a unique melody). Betts was influenced by Bob Wills' Texas Playboys and for anyone who wishes to listen I suggest finding Bob Will's tune "Twin Guitar Boogie". Listen to what was being played before Wishbone Ash or Lynyrd Skynyrd were born but are over-credited for in this "article".
