Started recording records in our basement in about ’97 and still do to this day.
My family – especially my uncles who all played bluegrass guitar.
It was a blue Teisco Del Rey with 4 silver pickups and six knobs. Played like shit but sounds real cool and I still use it.
I Was Born To Preach The Gospel – Washington Phillips
Enter The 36 Chambers – Wu Tang Clan
Talking Timbuktu – Ali Farka Toure and Ry Cooder
Anything by Booker T and the MG’s
Carl And The Passions – Beach Boys
Playing Carnegie Hall with Ray Davies was a nice moment but there have been too many to really just pick one.
The Internet, of course.
A Club King RT and a Flatroc – both with Gretsch style pickups.
I like the layout among other things – it’s easy to play and they look pretty hip too.
Too many to list. My favorites are the Analogman Sunface and anything by Earthquaker Devices (crazy delay and tremolo pedals).
Not really, sorry.
Stop worrying your grandma and get a real job.
The new Black Keys record, produced by Dangermouse, has just been finished and will come out on Nonesuch in North America on April 1st, 2008.
