fate of Waylons guitar

I understand that Nicole Kidman purchased Waylons old 50's nocaster for a birthday gift for husband Keith Urban and I did see him do a version of "Are you sure Hank done it this way" on youtube.
I just read today that he (Urban) lost all of his guitars, amps, equipment stored in a storage facility, in the recent flooding in Nashville.
Can someone please tell me that Waylons guitar was not in that storage facility and is o.k.?

Waylon's guitar was not in that storage facility and is ok. I cannot verify this information at all, but I wanted to make you feel better.

I'm pretty sure Keith lost all of his gear.
When I saw him on the Brooks and Dunn special on Sunday, he didn't have his signature Hiwatt heads or vintage WEM cabs.
Also looked like he was playing his K-Line tele, not one of his vintage pieces.

I just twice threw up in my mouth... First, because of the thought of Waylon's Broadcaster being destroyed. Second, because of the idea of Keith Urban playing it. I do know Hank didn't do it HIS way. Now excuse me while I retreat to a corner to assume the fetal position.

You and me both a nice watery grave would be preferable than pop country crapola.

Old country is going the way of the blues and jazz, and crapola country is here to stay. It will continue to evolve the way the Nashville sound came with the violins and 80s drums and changed to our modern bad rock and good pop.

Ironic one of old country's hallmarks, Chet Atkins, is responsible for the Nashville Sound.

The last I heard Waylons old guitar was owned by Reggie Young. So if he still has it its in good hands.

I don't think that was his #1 that Reggie had. Methinks Shooter has the #1.

Shooter Jennings also still owns one of his dad's old teles. It was featured in that music video of Roger Alan Wade's "The first time I saw Waylon" where Wade plays it.

This Nashville flood thing sounds terrible. If I am to believe what I have read then every big name artist kept their gear there, including peices of historic significance. Talk about putting all your eggs in one basket.

I've always believed that the country crapola bunch was rock guitarists that could not make it in rock and roll, so they took the easy way out and went country.

Gosh, anyone can play a 12 bar blues and throw in a few generic riffs.

Rock and roll takes some inovation and thought plus good coordination to be any good.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

WRONG!

That's hilarious! If anyone's looking for an easy way out, they won't find it here. JMHO...

I believe that Brad Paisley and Keith Urban would be considered country crapola to some people.
I would like to see them outplay BP or KU. They are both killer guitarists.

Both BP and KU are excellent guitarists, but I'd certainly give the nod to Brad.

Keith sounded GREAT doing the Rolling Stones songs......it's just that when he does "his" songs (or somebody's songs that people pay/force him to do), he sounds just terrible.

I'll agree, most of the stuff called "country" now-a-days is just gut wrenching to listen to. Paisley has a few great songs and he is one bad ass tele player, I can tell you that.

Can't stand the product coming from Nashville. But you could argue that it proves Chester was just as bad*ss at business as he was on guitar.

When much younger I never listened to country a la Tele Dave. Seems funny that these days the country I enjoy and respect is the stuff I blew off in my youth. There might be a reason that Hank is more popular than ever.


I once heard Mark Knopler say that there were more REAL guitar players per square foot in Nashville than anywhere else on earth with the possible exception of Rio, and being there was at once gratifying and humbling. Does anyone else see this as a great waste of talent?
