    I don't think I've ever seen that photo of Syd before.

    Not sure if a Telecaster is on the studio version or not.

    Nope. Roy did work at times with Dale Hawkins, but Susie Q was all James Burton.

    At 15 years old.

    Burton, Don Rich, others in country.
    How can you possibly doubt the validity of this vid?
    There's a Fender head on the floor behind the guitarist--I mean, that makes it real, right?

    It looks like Mick Taylor's Tele has both the regular Tele bridge and a trapeze tailpiece. What's going on there? o_O

    "Barracuda"

    I know there are differing reports on this. It's certainly possible I'm wrong about it being Burton - but I think we can ALL agree it's one of the great guitar leads of early rock n toll, right?

    To me it always sounded more like Burton's playing but I'm not an expert. I've read that Buchanan joined Hawkins in time for the followup "My Babe" but that Burton was on the earlier record.

    No mention of James Burton with Ricky Nelson? Or, how about these two guys?

    Wow, what a humble gentleman. This thread is full of Tele goodness. Love the Don Rich stuff as well.
