Hi all, This may be annoyingly off topic for some of you. But, I imagine Stan(itarium) Card will get a chuckle out of it . . . and so will any of the rest of you who are closet "surf" guitar fans. A small local chain of hardware stores in my area was celebrating its 120th anniversary in business this week with a parking lot concert by Ventures guitarist Nokie Edwards (who's got to be in his 70s at least) at the location only 2 blocks from my abode. Imagine my glee at having the opportunity to walk not run . . . lol . . . around the corner and down the street and hear a really fine musician play a lot of old an new material (Pipeline, Wipeout, Diamond Head, Hawaii Five-0 and other classics of the genre) as well as covers including a Clapton tune. It also turns out that Nokie has turned into a rather superior county instrumentalist over the years (a la the late Chet Atkins) believe it or not. I was blown away by his blistering "chicken pickin" and almost Les Paul-like finesse. I hope I can play so well when I've reached that age. I feel like an old fart at 51 already.
