Jazzbo is just me, a hack with some guitars, amps, keyboard, electronic drum machine and some recording equipment. (Strictly low budget.) I do the vocals, play all of the instruments, then mix it down and burn to CD.
Yeah, in front of the dog, but she isn't easily impressed! Seriously though, I haven't played live in a long time.
I cut my teeth on 50's country & early Elvis when I was just 5 or 6, but went a different direction when I saw the Beatles on Sullivan in 64. My "drivin' around" CDs are pretty diverse, from Webb Pierce to Green Day to Mozart to Carl Smith to King's X to Backyard Babies. I love music.
Depends on the song, but I'm partial to Gretsches and Marshalls.
Yeah. I wish the recording industry would quit compressing the hell out of songs. They squash the sh*t out of recordings just to make the CD sound louder. It wears my ears out quickly and it ruins any dynamics that might have been in the song. I hope that practice dies soon cuz it's killin' me!!!!
