    And who is the dude between Derick Trucks and Django? Young Robert Fripp?

    I've been buying it since '73, as well. Back in the mid-70's Hamer ran little ads in GP showing Rick Nielsen *without a hat.*

    On the last page of the issue, discussing polyrhythms. Really good article, by the way!

    It was the Samurai sword that confused you. Thats actually his SG. Ironicly thats how Tony lost his finger tips.

    I see Derek Trucks's SG. I don't see a sword or a leftie SG.

    Also, what irony are you talking about? Iommi lost the tips at a sheet metal factory. Was he making swords?

    You can be a questionable human being, while still a giant guitarist, like Chuck Berry, Ike Turner or Ritchie Blackmore.. EVH is both repulsive and unartistic. He's a stunt invented by the 80s and Guitar Player, and shoved down the throats of gullible teen agers. He sure profited from the sorry state of guitar in the late 70s, then the 80s longing for the blandest corporate rock possible.

    At least Dave era VH I find difficult to think of as bland. Especially those first four. Those are four of the most intense recordings ever made. Van Hagar, meh, I don't know about repulsive but yeah a lot of that was pretty bland and yes corporate, the kind of safe stuff you'd hear at the company Christmas party.

    I dunno about the state of guitar in the late 70s being sorry though. Look at some of the monumental albums that came out in 1979:
