      I figured the 2nd quote might be Garcia (mostly because I’m not over-familiar with G-D) but, 😆 , you threw me for a minute on the first quote.

      The idea that Bill Graham would take time out of evangelical God-bothering in order to eulogise the band struck me as weird. Then I realized; Bill Graham the promoter (who handled the Philadelphia side of Live Aid, IIRC) – not Billy Graham 😳

      You, sir, are correct.

      And the quotes came from a.) Bill Graham, and b.) Jerry Garcia (the phonebook quote…a great quote, btw)

      Something to do with “change a lightbulb” gags, but Grateful Dead is ringing a bell. Even so, I have no idea who said what, even if I am right about the band.

      Nope, try again. This band started in the 60’s however, under the name “The Warlocks”

      That’s bugging me, now, Shake. It’s a 70s band, I’m sure, but I shall have to sleep on it.

      [quote]Yeah, “Pardon?” was the next line, tsk.[/quote]

      That was excellent comedy all by itself. Who was playing the straight man? 😆

      Indeed it is, in which the line “Pardon?” followed the line “90% of the information on the Internet is wrong”…but I think the moment has passed now, move along… 😆

      and about whom was this person speaking?

      ahhh….and another gem, from one of the members of the same band, on writing songs (lyrics):

      “I’d rather fill in all the O’s in the phone book”

      Grammar has no business on the Internet.

      Actually I just did some Hootie Youtubing and he was pretty catchy… for a 90s soft cock.

      I was always impressed with the 360 Rickenbacker he played, don’t see too many of those about.

      No takers? OK, his first name is Richard and he is a guitarist, not a bassist.

      Too self-deprecating to be Clapton, surely? Gilmour takes and makes a joke about himself (such as “thank God Money switched to 4/4 so that I could actually play lead over it”) but it’s not him. More of a folky-rocky player.

      [quote=”1bassleft”]I completely identify with this quote, although the sayer is considered a very able and influential player. If I’d come up with the quote, it’d have had less irony than a plastic magnet:

      [quote]I’m glad there are a lot of guitar players pursuing technique as diligently as they possibly can, because it leaves this whole other area open to people like me[/quote][/quote]

      Got to be Clapton or Gilmour, they are always banging on about the futileness of Speed Shredding and technique.

      ’tis true, Lee; a well-known Grouchoism, like “that’s no lady, that’s my wife” and “I wouldn’t join any club that would have me as a member”. I wonder when Groucho did the quote? Bit risque for the time they were in films I’d’ve thought.

      Anyhoo, is that a new challenge, Mike? I suggest “Sharon Osbourne” 🙂

      It’s a musicians quote.

      A musician no doubt copied it at some time.

      I can tell, Mike. This one’s not a musician’s quote, but a very well known one.
