The Ivor Novello award has gone to grime artist skepta. Big festivals are struggling to get guitar based headline acts. A lot of talk about the end of guitar music. This is shy it should survive. Great post!
From the time fire first flickered in Mankind’s camp and imagination we have always been engaged in Quest.
And, engaged every bit as much, in stories about Quest.
The quest for food and warmth.
The quest for Love.
The quest for Knowledge.
The quest for Meaning.
The quest for Oblivion.
The quest for Freedom.
The quest for the North West Passage. The quest for the South Pole.
The quest to put a man on The Moon. A man on The Moon.
And, ever since the sound of the Electric Guitar thrillingly sliced through the air and ether the quest for The Riff!
The Riff that has other Guitar Players saying, ‘Damn, how come I didn’t get that one first?’
The Riff that snaps the neck back hard when it cuts through the fug of tobacco smoke and fog of alcohol as it roars out of the Jukebox speakers.
