Who Were Who?


Another (literal, in the literal sense of "literal") museum piece now.
Who? Yes. No, Who. The Who.... @ #MetMuseum #PlayitLoud

Here is one of the Gibson SG-Special guitars Pete Townshend ordered & used by the dozens (from Manny's Instruments, NYC), demolishing many along the way, onstage. Here's a survivor. One of the siblings to those used in the big events of The Who, 1968-1971

Fishing for Bass

(Sorry about that!) This instrument is a Portuguese Rajão from the late 19th century, made from wood and gut.

According to the (non-rock) museum exhibit sign, "This folk instrument from the ... island of Madeira typically had five strings, but this example has only four.... The instrument was popular with Portuguese sailors, who took it around world [and]introduced the rajão to native Hawaiians... [It]inspired the creation of the ukulele.

Joni Mitchell - Tributes at 75

This is Joni Mitchell's Ibanez arch top guitar, George Benson Signature Model - used in 1979 live album Shadows and Light and also on the Refuge World Tour (1983).

Reminded of her recent 75th birthday tributes, as tonight U.S. Public Television is (re)broadcasting a tribute to towering figure of 60's/70's music, her angelic voice coupled with poetic and compositional brilliance. So nice to see her still with us and appearing in a better state than has been seen/reported recently.

The exhibit had drawn some scrutiny about the relatively limited space afforded to the women pioneers of rock. There is some representation here, and certainly Joni Mitchell is one who deserves acclaim. Joan Jet's guitar is here too, Lady Gaga's piano, a few other icons (but not Joplin, or many others who deserve historical recognition). Still, for one traveling exhibit, borrowing from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's collection, and personal collections and estates of the rock legends, well... the exhibit is massive, and rocks!
