    I have a bootleg somewhere, Live at Eel River. It's a blast.

    Just found snippets on YouTube, here's an example

    Ry Cooder is a musical visionary and to call him the 'best' of anything, is to miss the point.
    A man with a storied 50 year career doesn't rely on one tone, or the use of layered effects pedals, to craft his music. The video which John Owen posted, demonstrated Cooder's exquisite touch and taste, which you don't just acquire with endless gear purchases. He had those gifts in 1970- and didn't stop working on them.

    I am a fan of the man since the mid 70ies. He is the main reason I play so much Slideguitar. The very first time I saw him I got no idea who he was: we hitchhiked to Amsterdam and he played „smack dab“ at an open stage jam in the melkweg. Good times.

    This is what turned me on to John Hiatt. I'd never heard of him but the ads mentioned Ry Cooder so I went to a show around this time with this lineup.


    The show was sponsored by the local FM radio station and they did a simulcast that was recorded apparently. I recently discovered that there was a CD released of this recording and purchased it.
    Live at the Cotati Cabaret 1983, I've been a huge John Hiatt fan ever since then.

    I have the VHS tape around here somewhere. I remember it being funnier in 1990 when I first saw it. Robin Williams was a crazy man. Now, I listen to the guitar work more. :)

    What...Keith claimed that Ry stole HIS licks??

    I have no dog in that fight...just trying to remember if that was what Ry was claiming a few years ago.

    Jackson's 'For a Dancer' was the song that was played at both Phil Harmann's and John Belushi's funerals....

    man, a tele and a deluxe can take you anywhere....

    No, the wrong horse is Brown Sugar - it was Honky Tonk Women that Ry sort of claimed.
    could've Ry written that? in the basics - maybe, as a Glimmer Twin production - nope.
    did he he show Keith and Mick the Open G tuning - yep, for sure.
    he was an inspiration for the Stones but claiming something that he didn't do had a real sour impact on their relationship.
    I wish it had lasted longer.

    (btw, I don't like dog fights);)

    Thanks for the song correction and Getbent's link refreshed my memory.

    Every story has two sides and the truth is usually somewhere in the middle.
    He definitely had an influence on Keith. And like that article said, Honky Tonk Women had a sound that no Stones song had, before or since.

    Maybe someday Keith will do another "Hail, Hail Rock and Roll", but for Ry, instead of Chuck Berry.:D

    His records introduced me to a lot of different music and players when I was a kid. Into the Purple Valley, Chicken Skin Music, Taj Mahal, his soundtracks, his guest work. Amazing player.
