      Lars Haavard Haugen of the Norwegien band Hellbillies.

      Lars Haavard is a VERY good player (huge Allman fan btw) and a cool guy.

      Did a support gig for him and Hellbillies a few years ago.

      I believe he has some of Norway's most insane collections of guitars and amps as well.

        Jimmy Bryant:

        1940s: fought Nazi troops in Itay, received head wound from a grenade, learned how to play guitar in an Army hospital.

        1950s: was declared Very Best Guitar Player In The History Of Forever, and was awarded the last prototype Broadcaster by Leo Fender.

        1960s: raced cars. Because in spite of fighting Nazis and being the fastest, cleanest guitarist ever (according to Danny Gatton), he just wasn't badass enough.

                I caught most of The Marty Stuart show today. Wynonna and Connie Smith were guests. Cousin Kenny played some really cool, gritty, surf/spy style Telecaster as the credits rolled, and Marty is a BEAST on the mandolin as well. Class acts all around.

                  Kenny Vaughan and Marty Stuart belong to his category. I love everything about this: the playing, the background vocals, the Tele toans etc. Marty
