Sound on the Rebound

Originally uploaded by Doctor Noe
Checked out the Fullerton museum last week, with my son Dylan, pictured here. Browsing around in all that history and monolithic iconography (see here- just click on the picture:) FULLERTON•1-20-08_146.JPG got me to thinking about my next project -- contributing something to an exhibit there coming up in March, organized by Richard Smith, author of Fender: The Sound Heard 'Round the World. The show will be about Telecasters. One particular one, belonging to the late Roy Buchanan, was photographed by John Peden, who also shot numerous other Fenders for Richard's book). The guitar was named Nancy, and in 1982 I had the honor of moderating a video interview cum master class with Mr. Buchanan as he arrived in John Peden's studio for the photo enshrinement of Nancy in Guitar World magazine's Centerfold Collector's Choice feature.

See the caption for more info on this session, which did make it to guitar freak audiences via the DVD medium.
