    That was too fun! Thanks for posting. Belongs in some sort of historical (hysterical?) archive.

    That's Vince Crane! The guy was also in Arthur Brown's band prior to Atomic Rooster and was an amazing organist. He influenced Van Der Graaf Generator's organist really closely. Infact on VDGG's song "Lost" I'm sure there is a half tribute to him as the singer sings the word "Fire" and the organist plays a chord that is voiced exactly like on the original Arthur Brown song....

    However I digress. That Tele looks really awesome with that custom pickguard. I guess that is a Burns Trisonic in the neck position??

    Telecasters don't seem to get a lot of use in modern Stoner rock. Dead Meadow's guitarist/singer uses one but they are at the lighter end of the spectrum.

    When that kind of music was happening, I was rebuilding engines on a stand by the back door of a big shop, I'd get to playing my radio listening to that stuff, and first thing you know, I'd be gone out the back door! Used to really get my boss going. Don't know why he didn't just can me. Loved the video. I can't comment on how cheap some things were in those days, you would'nt bleieve it anyway.
