    Your Uncle was a few years ahead of me, but the picture brings back some great Army memories. I was a battalion photographer while in Germany and was able to shoot Grand Funk Railroad when they played our air strip. Very cool gig, unfortunately all that film belongs to Stars & Stripes.

    Thanks a lot for posting, I appreciate it!

    Again so freekin' cool thanks for posting!


    Its funny, just the other day I stumbled across this Michael Jackson video doing Billy Jean at the Motown 25 year award ceremony. I -never- liked Michael growing up, and I hated what he became in the end. But I was captivated with how incredibly talented he was way back in the day, I mean like for the first time ever I got it.... and I was even thinking that the guitar sounded righteous too.

    And now to find out like 3 days later that it was your uncle playing those sweet tasty rhythm licks.. just wow! What a life your uncle had.. I know you must be very proud.





    Thanks again for sharing...

    Who was sneering? I posted a link so that Tazz3 could read it for himself, rather than bluntly point at that David Williams died in 2009.

    The link you originally posted said it had never heard of David Williams, that was the reason I gave you a little poke, but it was in fun. I thought the link and the quote fit quite nicely!:D

    tying things together a little bit...

    the guitar playing here is very much the David Williams thing very nicely used and adapted by...

    Steve Lukather....
