    That would be a great review video for anyone (like me) wanting to hear a Casino without the usual distortion that many seem to think necessary.

    Sweet! How cool is that? I could only wish to be alive and make any kind of music at 81. Hats off to that gentleman.

    Jay, whatever you tried to post from ytube didn't take, at least on this end.
    Whoops, never mind. I was impatient.

    Nice rendition, but the entire shop staff was stunned? Why? Are they clueless? There's nothing at all unusual about an 81 year old man being a competent guitarist. There are guys in their 80s touring regularly.
