Ha....when he leaned back in the beginning, he had that Andre the Giant look going on. :thu: :grin:

 

You know, he wasn't a great player in today's terms, but he had a good touch and sound..not to mention a good vibe. :)

 

I watch and listen to that tune and I think about seeing Skynyrd at Rickwood field in Birmingham along with Montrose & others on a July 4th in 1975.

The last song of the night and a STAGE size Rebel flag drops down behind the behind the band and the fireworks start going off! THe whole while, Ronnie Van Zandt is belting them out bare footed. :grin:

Man, the good old days!

sorry to dissagree, Strat, but I feel Leslie is a fantastic player to the standards of any era.

 

He is one of the masters of playing "the right note", instead of playing many many notes in a meaningless display of technical virtuosity.

 

Perhaps you might think of him as the BB King of Classic Rock.

 

The Allman Bros used to say he's "hittin the note".

Trader....I missed Duane. At what time point is he in that video?

 

Couple of comments....again, you can see it's a bit hard keeping a LP Jr. in tune....but it's so toneful!!! I think Leslie compensated for the "out of tune" while playing lead so that you don't notice it. But, when he hits chords, esp. later on in the song, it is a bit painful.... :/

 

Felix appears to be playing an old Gibson violin bass. They are cool!

 

And, this film is proof that some folks simply should NOT DANCE IN PUBLIC!! :grin:

Here's the one I thought Felix was playing;

It's an EB-1, very few of which were made, between 1953 to 1958. I think there may be one in my basement...... :grin:

 

btw...Jack Bruce was playing one in the reunion Cream shows a couple of years back.

MDRS,

 

Daune appears at 6:43, 6:50, 7:05-07, 8:45, and 8:55.

 

There's another clip from that same concert where they do Theme For An Imaginary Western, and the people reviewing the clip ask about Duane Allman in that one, too.

 

As to the dancing, well, there's a few chicks that are kind of fun to watch! I loved the pipe smoking, and the people sneaking into the concert along the top of that wall or whatever it was, too, LOL!
