"During the shows O'Connor (the youngest musician here on this video at just 18 years-old) always played at least one piece on violin, but his role was guitarist and original member Darol Anger the violinist.

Notice at 6:37, as O'Connor begins his guitar solo, his string snaps and one can hear this audibly. The high E string of the guitar came lose from the end pin and dropped all the way down to where it was flopping. You can see O'Connor attempting to figure out what to do as he continued his solo on national television. Beginning on the lower strings, he mutes some with his right hand, then gestured towards David Grisman as if he was going to give his solo back to him. Grisman does not respond and continues to play rhythm not really knowing what happened. Then O'Connor turns away from the mic and within a period of three seconds (from 7:01 to 7:04) the high E string is perfectly back in tune for the remainder of the solo. This very moment back in 1980 helped solidify O'Connor's reputation as a young star whose ability as a great young musician was growing. These few seconds were the talk of the show to many guitar players watching at the time. Many experts just could not believe that O'Connor could tune the string during his solo from its "floppy" state to the precise pitch in an instant, without the ability to even hear it while the band was playing loudly."

↑Reminds me of the Last Waltz scene where Clapton's guitar strap comes unglued and Robbie Robertson picks up Clapton's solo as if it was his own.
With all the criticism of Robertson's manipulation of the filming and business tactics, you can't criticize his guitar playing.

I like the way Buddy Guy handles this broken string scenario, as he patiently waits on his guitar tech to do his job:

Buddy Guy, Johnny Lang & Ronnie Wood ≈ Miss you

 Intrigued I took a look at this vid...

I see something a little different then I've read above.

I hear the string pop... This would be the high note string lowest on the fretboard...

Then at 7:04 everything is back to normal... Or is it possible that he tightened the B string to the high E instead of its normal B... and continued with a solo minus the B parts?

I thought I'd share this with my fellow lovers of music, the power of music.
Friends, forgive my indulgence tonight.


When I was seven or eight years old I bought my very first album. My sister Betsy had given me a gift certificate to Loco Records on Broadway and Stewart, just a few blocks from my house.
I already liked music, and having older siblings I was exposed to a lot of good stuff. Those were the days of vinyl and even more than the music itself, I loved album cover art and my siblings' massive collections provided hours of wonder.
So it was off to Loco Records to pick out a few albums. I knew I liked Elton John, thanks to my brother Jim, and I chose Honky Chateau purely on the merit of "Rocket Man".
Choosing the next record took a while. I flipped through hundreds of albums. There were familiar names like Alice Cooper and Dan Fogelberg but at this point I was paying more attention to the album cover art.
Then it happened. I came across the absolute coolest image I'd ever seen, a skeleton with big frizzy hair and sunglasses. He was wearing a robe, playing a violin and sitting on some intricately carved stone that had some lettering that I could just barely make out.
So the decision was made and I rushed home to play my new music. Boy did I feel independent! Rocking out to music that I chose, that I bought. I must have played Rocket Man twenty times!
I unwrapped the other album, excited to hear what my mystery choice sounded like. The needle hit the groove in the vinyl. Pumping bass and power chords, and then the first words, "Paradise waits, on the crest of a wave...."
I called Betsy to tell her about my purchases, how I'd spent her gift certificate. Elton John, I couldn't even pronounce "Chateau", and the Grateful Dead, Blues for (couldn't pronounce) Allah. Betsy snickered at that one.
Little did I know then that it was the moment I became a Deadhead.

Well almost 40 years later and I'm listening to Blues for Allah while my sister Betsy fills in the pages of the last chapter of her amazing, rich life. A life where she has helped and inspired countless people from Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, the backwoods hollers of Kentucky, and high schools in Phoenix. As a mother she raised three very talented and unique children that have grown into amazing adults. As an art teacher she helps plant the seed, water, and inspire many artists to flourish. As a partner she found and helps another realize true love. As a daughter, a sister, an aunt and a friend she gives, she loves, she encourages, she inspires.
The lyrics from that very first Grateful Dead song, "Help on the Way", seem especially poignant to me tonight.

"Paradise waits, on the crest of a wave, her angels in flame.
She has no pain, like a child she is pure, she is not to blame.
Poised for flight, wings spread bright, spring from night into the sun.

Don't stop to run, she can fly like a lie, she can't be outdone.
Tell me the cost; I can pay, let me go, tell me love is not lost.
Sell everything; without love day to day insanity's king.

I will pay day by day, anyway, lock, bolt and key.
Crippled but free, I was blind all the time I was learning to see.

Help on the way, well, I know only this, I've got you today.
Don't fly away, cause I love what I love and I want it that way.
I will stay one more day, like I say, honey it's you.

Making it too, without love in a dream it will never come true."

Immediately following the very intense jam of "Help on the Way" comes "Franklin's Tower", with this simple gem of a verse, so much more beautiful and full of meaning than I could have ever imagined...

"In another times forgotten space
Your eyes looked from your mother's face
Wildflower seed on the sand and stone
May the four winds blow you safely home."

Music has been such a large part of my life, and through every phase, every up and down, lyrics have found a way to say which I wish I could say myself.
So tonight I sing, I sob, in sadness, in celebration, in thanks.

Thank you Betsy.
