    Donnas guitarist laments ongoing grunge "backlash"

    She's sad that people these days are supposedly down on "sloppy and lame and covered up their crap with fuzz boxes".

    The horrah.

    Is she seeing some return to quality in mainstream rock that I'm missing?

    "Mr. Greed" from "Centerfield", actual lead guitar
    pyrotechnics on "Change in the Weather" and
    "Eye of the Zombie" from "Eye of the Zombie").

    But part of it was his credentials as a hitmaker
    that got him contact with Verheyen in the first
    place. It's not like I can ask Carl nicely and he
    will give me lessons too although I suppose he
    would if I somehow had contact with him and
    I had enough dollars.

    I think Carl was teaching full-time at one point. I wish I had been in LA and knew about him at that time. He has a good story about it in his "Studio City" book. See "The Carlos Guy".

    Is there an issue of Guitar Player that doesn't include some sort of verbal blowjob for Robben Ford?

    Lame is not only good these days, it's preferrable. So I would definitely think she's using that term in a positive way...at least the way she looks at things. She seemed to be upset that guitar playing on a level above hers and modern "rock's" might return and that mediocrity in rock may return to where it used to be - in the garage.

    shes good at what she does, i dont see how not being a technical wizard makes you mediocre...music dosent always have to be technical, music can be good without fancy technical solos, complex scales and lengthy instrumentals, oh well...to each his own.

    That's the way I remember it also. You know, the year Randy died and stuff....I just thought he relied on the whammy bar a bit too much. To the point of parody.

    It's all about cross marketing:
    the TV stars become the music stars and they
    all have a product to sell. In the future, I'd
    expect to see more of this crossover and
    it will only get worse.

    Unfortunately, this is the way marketers think.
    They're not in it for the music so much as they
    know ways to market a product.


    it's always been there, but it's getting worse,IMO.

    I think Clear Channel, etc. have become puppets of the same big corporation, and that has watered it down further. Like the Tom Petty song 'The Last DJ', you used to be able to find out about music outside the top 40 easier back when FM radio was getting big in the late 60's early 70's.

    I love Classic Rock, but Classic ROck radio is nothing different than top 40 radio. You just hear the same 2 or 3 Beatles, Who, and Jethro Tull songs over and over again.
