So… T-minus One Worlds Okayest Guitarist until liftoff for the yet-to-be-named Smiths/Morrissey tribute band. We have a great core together but our guitarist is going on tour with his band in January, so I’m hoping to find a second guitarist who can also cover the lead parts so we can book shows and still be flexible for everyone’s main gigs. I think we could start doing shows in February or March. It’s paid shows, and the guys talked me into doing mainly Smiths singles instead of all weird solo stuff I wanted to do (I think the exact line was “No one wants to hear a live version of ‘Skin Storm’,”) so if you already play guitar and love The Smiths, you probably also already know how to play most of the setlist. Here’s the link to the Craigslist ad:Please pass this along to anyone you think might be interested – we all ended up being really laid back and happy musicians, so it’s a fun project with no stress at all (apart from me not realizing how hard it is to yawp and do a falsetto for most of a three hour of rehearsal).
One of the Greatest Worlds Okayest Guitarist ever. I first had the pleasure of meeting Leon on a recording session back in 1983 when the band I was working with Ken McWilliams came to Nashville from California and recorded an album at the Shock house studios. Most of the musicians on the Album have crossed over to the other side now. What a Great Album it was and what a wonderful experience. Leons guitar playing was as usual ” Awesome “. He was such a nice guy. Five years later I moved to Nashville and spent about 23 years there. Heavens band gained yet an other great musician. R.I.P Mr. Rhodes your guitar playing and the way you lived your life was an inspiration to many.
