my grandma played hawai'ian steel back in the twenties when the instruments were really popular in the states.

Buddy Cage with New Riders. Saw him with them in Angels Camp theater in 1980. As good a concert as I've ever been to.

I like many slide players, but I LOVE Duane Allman. One of the few guitar players to ever make the hair on the back of my neck stand up!

Saw Duane Allman play a bunch of times, including closing down the Fillmore East (after which a young Toker Villain climbed onto the stage, shook hands with and thanked Bill Graham, and lit up a number with Dicky Betts).

Duane absolutely tore it up on One Way Out.


But I thought this was about still living artists (Duane was the best though. And do people even realize how many times they heard him as a Mussel Shoals backup musician!)

on, Teach your Children, by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young...



"...Jerry Garcia plays the pedal steel (slide) guitar on this '70 pop anthem, making it the most widely recognized piece of music he may likely ever - nearly anonymously - be part of. Garcia's bright melodic riffs are the song's fourth voice, providing a lyrical counterpoint to Nash's soothing harmonized homilies that spanned a hit-radio bridge over the much-hyped generation gap.

When Garcia recorded the track, he'd been playing the pedal steel for all of two weeks."

Several of my favorites: Son House, Robert Johnson, Elmore James and John Hammond, Jr.

Son House ≈ Preachin' The Blues


Robert Johnson ≈ Ramblin' On My Mind


Elmore James ≈ Done Somebody Wrong


John Hammond Jr. ≈ It Hurts Me Too

Saw John Hammond Jr several times.

His dad did a lot to bring some great music to us, a visionary.





But if you want to talk about pedal steel and Jerry Garcia then give a listen to Garden Of Eden on the New Riders Of The Purple Sage album.

^Been meaning to ask tVillain, have you actually ever been one toke over the line?

I saw John Hammand at McCabes's, Golden Bear, Ash Grove, Four Muses, and Belly-Up over the course of about 45 years. He's always good. Favorite show was probably at Four Muses - very small and intiimate setting till about 2:00AM, but now, my mama don't allow me to stay out all night long.

Nohting like a slide on a dobro.

Ya'll ever see/hear Bob Weir playing slide?

Atrocious. So yeah, plenty of bad slide players, even ones you recognize.

Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes are the best I've seen live.
