|Hey, my name's Andy and I thought I'd introduce myself.
I've been a guitarist since the early 70's, and a huge Landau fan since 1983. My dad took me to my first 'big' gig at the NEC in Birmingham, England to see Joni Mitchell on the Wild Things Run Fast tour. I'd never seen anything like it, and in the hundreds of gigs I've been to and played since still haven't. He was very young back then, and aged 13 my eyes were opened wide. The band was incredible; Larry Klein, Colaiauta ( can't remember who was on Keys ) , and Landau's playing was just awesome, not to mention tone! The highlight being an incredible outtro solo to 'Amelia' with the band slowly leaving him on stage alone to play for maybe 2 minutes. Still sends chills down the spine. He also used some kind of Expression / Stereo Pan pedal, which threw his sound around the Arena in the most mesmeric way. I have the tour programme somewhere, and I'll try and post the band pic, when I get chance.
Anyway here's to much discussion, and who knows maybe I'll even finally get to learn to play Underwear!
