well? you might be interested?


Morning all
you may care to take a wee look at my brand spanking new website.
http//www.doogiewhite.com

Or you may like to discuss whether Ritchie thought Clapton was not a great guitarist.
It was one of the many things both he and I agreed on. Or maybe the plus and minus of marketing your music.Or whether it is wrong to actually make money from your job.

Oh well cant stay here ranting all day the sun is shining and the grass need cut.........where is my bloody gardener?

Doogie, I had no idea you had appeared on so many records. 35!

What song(s) did you perform on the Yes tribute? It's difficult to picture you as Jon Anderson emoticon

Clapton has never been more an a low average, in terms of technique, maybe he appeals in other ways to other people, to me.... he's dull!

I'd guess that you better than anyone know the value of marketing your music and the importantce of making money from your job and the methods used by Ritchie to acheive his business objectives !! You were there so you know exactly how Ritchie operates, indeeed you been on the receiving end of the "business" part of his activities. Somehow, I think you'd agree Ritchie is " a very hard working rock star", great musician, but also a great businessman!!

Your were by far and away the best Rainbow vocalist Ritchie ever had and the one with the very hardest job, as you came last and had the other great guys before you, BUT you were still the most flexible and in my view the best. Praise indeed !!

I watched your WhiteNoise DVD a couple of days ago for the first time and again your vocal was excellent, the band was good, but I found Bryan Josh with his 3 finger playing style totally lacking, he just didn't cut it at all for me.

Last word on this from me.
I do not and never have enjoyed the White Noise DVD. The sound is flat and dry. The bonus items are just not there and as for dropping in rehearsal footage over the breakdown section in Ariel...well..unforgivable really. I did request my input on the mixing after hearing the roughs, normally I would leave such a task to those who do that kinda thing but the quality was so poor I spoke up. The company went ahead and mixed it anyway without further consultation, which would have been a courtesy rather than anything else. But it still left me cold.... and pissed off. Of course it would be financially beneficial for me to say how great this..in the hope that people would buy it ...sadly it is not. Oh I feel such a martyr now...A burdon lifted.
Enjoy Sunday. And if EC does it for you great. I'll be listening to Rory, Torme, Beck, Angus, TMIB.....yep thought ya might.

It's Awaken I believe. AMG claims that Doogie did a version of Owner Of A Lonely Heart with Rick on keys on another tribute album, but that doesn't seem to be listed on site.

Me thinks that even Ritchie would agree that Clapton had 'it' in the '60s. Early Clapton recorded some great stuff, and I truly believe that TMIB has his tongue firmly in his cheek about Clapton when he gave his opinion. Now if you're talking about Clapton for the last 30 years, then no question, he is pretty boring on record.

Personally, I don't care much for Angus Young, and besides, isn't the foundation of AC/DC really down to Malcolm Young, who whose rythmn playing is the real rock of the AC/DC sound- in my humble opinion? Am I really the only bloke round here that doesn't own an AC/DC recording?

Jeff Beck and Rory Gallagher - totally agree.

Who is a good guitarist is subjective.

Clapton is a good guitarist. His style just is not for everyone. He is called slowhand for a reason. He plays slow.

His solo career is follows an American blues combined with country path. It didn't have the energy of his Cream material or Derek and the Dominos days.
