That I have ever bothered listening to The Grateful Dead, they really are quite good.

They were way way beyond quite good

American beauty and working mans dead were two albums which showed how a brilliant guitarist did not need to show what riffs he could play just good songs played in lovely arrangements by masterful musicians

A few years before Clapton did the same

Probably all influenced by music from big pink

At a time when I was probably listening to Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Spooky Tooth and Free, I missed out on a lot of the big American bands like The Band and Grateful, I think the reason being that I had once got an album of Frank Zappa whiuch I thought was truly dreadful and assumed all American music to be the same. I suppose in much the same way I missed out on the English punk scene after hearing Never Mind The boll*x, I missed out on The Stranglers and The Damned. My musical tastes seemed to evolve through time through AOR, on to AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and Guns N Roses. It wasn't until I got blown away by Nirvana that I started listening to American Pop-Punk and seem to have found my niche there.

Thank you for your input I have just listened to The Band's album, I honestly had no idea how good it was, The Weight I knew, but I always thought Wheels On Fire was a Brian Auger/Julie Driscoll track, and I shall be released as Nina Simone. It has reminde me of lots of other early Americana I liked, like The Eagles, Janis Joplin, Conutry Joe, Arlo Guthrie, I must dig out Alice's restaurant. In fact looking back Woodstock would have been the place to be.

try also listening to Richard Thompson, whom I have followed for over fifty years, but most people have never followed largely because he comes from a folk tradition rather than pure rock

possibly the cleverest English guitarist , but he can be a bit dark and a bit funny, but he is truly a stunning guitarist

Very good, I imagine Ashman would like them too, they'll be popped into a playlist along with Grateful Dead, Incredible String Band, Tyrannasaurus Rex etc

Yep, especially the 'Vincent Black Lightning 1952' song. He definitely needs to keep using that cap! :lol: :wink:
