   MeiDei  If you're a big country music fan you've probably seen this video on the Country Music Awards Show last Nov (? ) Tell me, is George Strait part of the group singing?
Memorable performance by top artists.

   GO3  Was having a discussion with a co-worker last week on the never ending topic of "who's the best guitarist?" He mentioned someone to me who I hadn't thought of in ages and that's Les Paul. If you think about it, Les provided the basis for virtually every chord, riff, etc. we hear from all the modern greats. For your listening pleasure here is Les Paul and Mary Ford doing How High the Moon:

Here is a new rendition by Jeff Beck and singer Imelda May. Frankly, Jeff is not up to Les in his playing, and his enthusiasm level is about zero, or maybe he wants to be somewhere else. I like Imelda's vocals and she looks happy performing. JMO.

   Safetydude  Not quite the same as Les Paul who was a pioneer with the electric guitar.

One of my favorites:

   GO3  Not saying others aren't talented - I sure as hell wouldn't be at their level - it's just my opinion that Les was the trailblazer for the next generations of guitar players.

   Mike PHX  GO, no arguments at all. Les Paul and Mary pretty much gave birth to Jimi and Jimmy.
Getting into a discussion about who's the best guitarist is like getting into a discussion about who's the best...
Drummer. Stop! No! I will not be sucked into this!

   Safetydude  I have no verification of this.
Somebody told me they heard an interview with Eric Clapton where he was asked what it felt like to be the worlds' greatest guitarist?
"You'll have to ask Prince," he answered.

I'm skeptical...c'mon...Clapton? God?

   GO3  I'm skeptical too. Clapton, ex-Yardbird wouldn't mention Jimmy Page? Prince? Has to be a joke.

Johnny Cash's rendition The Battle Hymn of the Republic.

He is backed up by The Statler Brothers [all the way back to when Lew DeWitt was living], and Mother Maybelle and the Carter Sisters, June, Helen and Anita.

Harold and Don Reid, and Phil Balsley are still living, but everyone else on that stage is gone.

When Mother Maybelle and AP Carter left the Clinch River coal mining country in Southwest Virginia, they moved to Richmond to be a part of a radio show that pre-dated the Grand Ole Opry. It was called the Old Dominion Barn Dance. They lived in an area way out on the edge of Richmond called Glenn Allen. I don't know if they built the house they lived in, or if it was an a existing house and they added on to it, but years and years later, dear friends of mine bought the property and live there for about twenty years.

The Carter Family was well known long before Johnny Cash entered the picture. I always thought June had an "interesting" voice, but the one with the real talent was Anita. In this video of Johnny singing the Battle Hymn, Anita is the tall blond standing beside Mother Maybelle.

In most of Johnny's music, the beautiful soprano voice you hear in the backup is always Anita.

It brings back a lot of memories seeing Johnny, the Carters and the Statlers all together on stage. The first time I ever saw the Statlers, was at a Johnny Cash concert. Johnny Cash is the one who gave them their start. They immortalized that in a song.

One more: Lew DeWitt. I Love Virginia

Lew DeWitt had the most beautiful tenor voice I ever heard.

Little Jimmy Fortune filled Lew's place very well, but he couldn't hold a candle to Lew.

   Daisymay  Went to see Ricky Nelson Remembered on Friday night. Great performance by his twin sons, Matthew and Gunnar. They took us back to my Glory Days in the 50's with film Clips of Ozzie
and Harriet along with playing Ricky's hits. I highly recommend it if it comes to a Theater near you.
