Which musicians section?







 At a guess Id say they mean the "Music Makers" board/section of the forum.

Thanks for the information on Graham Bond. I guess being an organ lover, and appreciator of the British blues scene of the 60's, I'm more than just a little embarassed that I didn't know who he was. emoticon

I have a John Mayall album from 1967. THE BLUES ALONE. One of my favorite songs off this album was "Broken Wings". Good organ, but more of a soulful, blues, mid-60's organ. Not psychedelic, not really Hammond sounding, though it could have been Hammond....hard for me to tell.

I was reading the liner notes....written by none other than the late John Peel. His specific quote regarding the song "Broken Wings" reads:

"This is the sort of thing that should be heard on the car radio late at night driving alone in the rain. A very gently, caressing and beautiful song. You needed to know this side of Mayall."

No where though did he mention Graham Bond. He did however say that Mayall is multi-talented and played piano, harmonica, both 6 & 9 string guitars, organ, sang, and did some of the artwork for some of his other album covers.

So apparently Mayall may have played all the organ tracks on this album, but Bond may have been a very strong influence somewhere along the midst of Mayall's career.

Very interesting indeed. Thanks to all who shared.

I believe the guy I was thinking of from Tower of Power was Chester Thompson. Though I guess, like Santana, they too probably had more than one organist.

John Mayall is certainly credited with Hammond organ work on the couple of albums I have.
He tends to use what might be best described as a "traditional" sound. Certainly a big influence on the UK blues scene although in a recent TV documantary I saw I thought he came across as being a bit weird.

Weird in what way?

I think many musicians, myself included, can come across a bit off kilter from the mainstream, merely because we make priorities out of music that are sometimes placed higher in importance than all the piddly everyday crap that non-musicians think are deathly important in comparison.

I can't tell you how many times my wife has come home from a day of running errands on a Saturday, only to find me at the Hammond, listening to CD's while charting chords, and basslines and what-have-you on lined paper.

She'll ask me, "Is this all you've done with yourself all day!!!!?" (Hey....like it's a bad thing). And then continue to lay into me with such gems as:

"You mean you haven't started the white laundry, or scooped the cat's litter box, or taken out the trash, or scrubbed the toilet, or scoured the bathroom shower tiles?"

I'll just look at her rather ryely and say,
"No I haven't. I'm a musician and I answer to the world on a much higher level than all that nonsense, which can easily be done anytime-- once I'm done doing what I'm busy doing now."

And isn't it funny how wives, girlfriends, roomates, bosses, parents, siblings, and other muckity-muck mainstream types JUST DON'T GET IT, NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU TRY TO EXPLAIN IT TO THEM!!!!?

In their mind, music is your "cute little hobby" that like a little kid playing with a Tonka Truck on the floor, you're just supposed to drop it and put it away, once something more important (in their mind) has to be done instead.

What they don't understand is that music is more than just a "cute little hobby" for a musician. It is an emotional outlet. It is a way of life. It is the fourth most important thing to us, running closely behind, oxygen, blood, and a steady pulse.

So if you mean weird in the sense that he seems to be in his own world, and that he isn't moved by the code of "social appropriateness" that mainstream people are, then I say....so what? More power to him. I'd rather spend a day in his world, than Donald Trump, or Martha Stewart, or George Bush's world any day.

I found him just a lttle strange and, dare I say it, a little arrogant. Perhaps a bit "sixties" Maybe I was expecting some genial old guy imparting words of wisdom about music but I found it hard to warm to him.

Taking on board what you say about other folk not understanding what goes on in the mind of a musician - I get it all the time from the wife - "Why do you spend so much time with the band?" "You want to spend how much on a new keyboard!"

Korg Oasys or a new sofa? Looks like a new sofa then! emoticon
