Thanks AlPaul. This lock down is taking its toll on me. Thank the Lord for YouTube. I've watched everything from Lady Ga Ga to Kate Smith, from Snoop Dog to Tiny Tim.
Eric seems to be a great guy. I remember him playing with Derek. Watched a Eric Krasno Trio video the other day. He was playing a PRS John Mayer Strat type guitar. Real nice guitar player.
What is that on your wall? Looks like an old tobacco burst Strat.
Do you know whether the Gibson ES-335 that Duane Allman owned and the 1955 Fender Stratocaster owned by the late Eddy Shaver were destroyed in a fire at Willie Nelson's studio? Dickey Betts gave those guitars to Eddy. The story is Dickey got the ES-335 after Duane died and came by the 55 Strat when in the early days of the ABB, Gregg Allman traded it to Dickey for an old car Dickey had. Dickey gave both guitars to Eddy. Eddy didn't play the ES-335 much bit played the 55 Strat almost exclusively until Eddy's death in 2000. Willie Nelson filled in for Eddy at the show he was to play just after his drug overdose and Billy Joe Shaver let Willie put those guitars in his safe. I hope that is where they are.
Have a great weekend!
