Reading is good for ya ..round 2 is up..Plus

#93231 2 years, 7 months ago
I consider myself pretty well versed in rock n roll history. R & R has been a passion of mine since 78 or so. I used to read the "rock" books at my high school library during study hall. Anyway today I am doing some reading and learned some really interesting (to me anyway) new things --file under learn something new everyday. Without googling for an answer do any of you know the answers to these questions?

1. Who gave Pete Townsend the 59 gretsch Chet Atkins Guitar he played on WHo's Next?

2. What is the only record to feature both Jimi Hendrix & Eric Clapton.

3. Why was Stevie Ray Vaughns band named double trouble?

4. Do you know who Hubert Sumlin is?

No cheating dammit!!!! I'm curious to see if most people knew this stuff or I just missed it somehow.

I knew #2, because I love the album, but that was it. Mr. S believes he is 4 for 4, but hasn't googled to confirm, so we'll see.

Freakin guitar players know everything I'll put the answers up in a few hrs lets see what other folks think. Oh and I WILL stump Mr Sunshine in round 2 (maybe I'll throw in a sports question!)

I think I know the answer to the SRV question, but it's only an educated guess from a misguided rocker.

Was it because Stevie's brother, Jimmy, was in the band at the outset?

I remember seeing SRV, Jimmy's band The Fabulous Thunderbirds and Roy Buchanan at the Mann in 87......I think it was during an encore that Stevie and Jimmy played a double necked guitar and switched necks a couple of times....in the City of Brotherly Love.

That would do it! The cruel irony of a female sports fanatic married to a man who couldn't care less about them!!

ok here's the answers:

. Who gave Pete Townsend the 59 gretsch Chet Atkins Guitar he played on WHo's Next?

Joe Walsh... I am not kidding.

2. What is the only record to feature both Jimi Hendrix & Eric Clapton.

"Stephen Stills".... his debut album in 1970

3. Why was Stevie Ray Vaughns band named double trouble?

Named after Otis Rush's 58 song Double Trouble

4. Do you know who Hubert Sumlin is?

Howlin Wolfs Guitarist who played lead on Wolf numbers such as Wang Dang Doodle, Back Door Man, Killing Floor, Smolestack Lightnin & Spoonful. He's still alive. No less an authority as Jimmpy page said " I love Hubert Sumlin. He always played the right thing at the right time."

Round 2 to follow. I am here to educate.
