This one's from Monterrey....I'm pretty sure Pete's playing a used Strat that Clapton gave him....it's a kissing cousin to "Brownie", and I think Clapton also gave one to Stevie Winwood.

And the most psychedelic version goes to:

Blue Cheer:

You beat me to Blue Cheer, Craig. There's something about them that I have always loved. Brian Setzer does a pretty cool version, too.

 

Avoid playing the amplifier at a volume setting high enough to produce a distorted sound through the speaker-Fender Guitar Course-1966

I like the Brian Setzer version since he's keeps true to Eddie Cochran's version.

 

And I love the sound of that big ol' Gretsch!

 

I think he played Eddie Cochran either in La Bamba or The Buddy Holly story. I can't remember.

I really like Brian Setzer's version. That Gretsch sounds terrific (especially on Mystery Train). But Lee's right, Rush nailed it.

 

Brian Setzer played Eddie Cochran in La Bamba. Lou Diamond Philips played Richie Valens.

Great Post A!! Rush does nail Summertime Blues. They must like The Who....they've played this song on each of the last two tours.

 

I actually could not find a good video of The Who doing Summertime Blues on YouTube. I agree with Ramp, that Pete playing that Strat sounded very thin. He went to SG's shortly after that Vid was filmed.

 

My all time favorite version of Summertime Blues is on "Live At Leeds"......a veritable power statement.

 

Here's another vid of Rush doing The Who's "The Seeker". Rush kicks some major arse!!;

Townshend looks like HELL on this one, but sounds a lot better than the other vid I posted. He starts this one out doing about as "rock a billy" as is possible for The Who...and his Strat sounds a bit better here too;

Don,

 

Thanks for the old Cochran vid. You answered a question that's haunted me for lo these many years. When I tried to learn Summertime Blues(from the record-long before vids), the opening passage had to be played in F if the guitar was playing it. In the vid, he's playing in E, and it's the bass player doing the recurring line. Now it all makes sense, and I can get some sleep :thu: .

 

Best, Paul

WUDAYAKNOW.. For the first time in my life, I'm wrong again!!

Yeah, Wachtel on guitar, Russ Kunkel on drums, Lee Sklar on bass. What a rhythm section!

James Taylor with hair! You know this is an old clip.

the WHO and RUSH got it just right!! :)

 

Truthfully I liked Eddie Cochrans version the best, then Brian Setzer, but I always played it the Who way, but right after this post I am learning it the Eddie Cochran way.
