This guy makes it painfully clear, but he did a good job breaking it down:
When 777-9311 was a hit,I remember knowing and seeing several drummers actually play the drum line and nail it.
I think one of the reasons a lot of guys were able to nail it was that they had no clue that it was a drum machine.
machines have often pushed unsuspecting players to get better. think about the 1920's when pianists would hear a player piano doing outrageous stuff and want to copy it. same thing now except not nearly as cool as a player piano.
Sure.......... and Led Zeppelin was a huge commercial flop too?
It's no accident that Page was one of the world's most requested session guitar players BEFORE Zeppelin. Beck admitted that himself in his biography.....he would have loved to be in Page's shoes.
first off, page was one of england's most requested session players, not the world's most requested. second, page was never famous until zeppelin. the yardbirds were done by the time page joined. so i stand by my statement, and i reject yours.
1) OK, England's most requested. Being #1 studio player in England during the British invasion got him a little notoriety , I'd think.
2) The Yardbirds were done when Page left. If you're talking about when their popularity peaked, that's a different point. See Beck's autobiography and Yardbirds documentary VCR as reference.
3) Putting down Jimmy Page because he played on Tom Jones' "It's not unusual " is pretty narrow minded. whatever
1. being a session musician today brings you a little notoriety. only a little, though. being a session musician in the 60's meant nobody ever heard of you and you were never credited on any recordings for anything.
2. i meant done in the "not selling very well anymore" sense. all the hits they had that still get played were done with beck, and clapton to a lesser extent.
3. waaaaaaahhhh, he made a joke about jimmy page! come on, enough with the righteous indignation...it comes off so bad on the internet
listen, all 3 yardbird guitarists are great in their own ways. but jeff beck can do pretty much any type of music you throw at him, including jazz, and i think he's a better guitarist than page. and so do page and clapton.
When you compare Jimmy Page to truly accomplished guitarists like his childhood buddy Albert Lee, or modern marvels like Brent Mason, he is pretty average. As a bandmemeber/song writer he was great, but let's not confuse the two.
Are we off topic? Unbelievable!
It wasn't a joke you made, it was a dumb statement. Of course you're entitled to do that .
I definitely agree with you that all 3 Yardbird guitarists were great in their own ways. I don't like the "who's better" arguments, as we all use different rulers to measure by.
King _ Biscuit,
As long as we can connect the dots on these posts, I don't think it's too far off topic.
Ok, let's try to pull this back to the "Ronda replaces Tal" theme.
Uh....let's see.......what kind of strings does Ronda use?
I dunno, but they are WAY BETTER than whatever strings Tal uses!!!!
[P.S.: That was a joke.]
yup, I remember that bass line well! now let me go see if I can youtube it. Darn you!
that's right. except for the dumb part. i thought it was pretty darn witty. i guess there's no accounting for taste.
More of her.
