Here's a Les Paul Standard, Seth Lover bridge pickup, Plexi RI and a canned (drums and bass) backing track..
Faaaaaaaaaaaaaat Stevo....man that is one huge sound!!
Not gonna miss you know!
Information is not knowledge.
Sounds fckin' great man! The only comment would be some of the bends are a bit off pitch in the last solo, but they're spot on everywhere on the overdubs so I'm guessing the it was improvised? I've never heard the original lol. The attitude and tone is there in spades

Thanks guys. Nuntius, the little solo was a very quick improv.. it's definitely a bit weak. This song was originally done by Rick Darringer, who was an amazing guitar player in the 70s. When I was a kid, I saw him with Johnny Winter and Edgar Winter.. what a show.. freakin great guitar concert
Great version!! The original is on my short list of greatest rock tunes of all time. Never did like Rick's guitar tones on the original, sounded thin. I much prefer your tones. Shame those young guys haven't heard classics like this. Good job educating them!
I agree.. but he sure did rip out the chopsOriginally Posted by Al.C
I love the ultra-falsetto of the origial.
RAWK AND ROLLLLEEE HOOCHEY KKOOOOOOO!
UMMM ! Nice and crunchy just the way I like it And the solo had a great
feel to it. Now I always get confused w/t this song? there are 2 versions
right? Ricks and Johnny's ? Johnny's being a lil' faster. Can some one
Yes they both had a version. I saw them play it together.. darn good show.. I think my ears were ringing for days.
Nice one! Love the guitar tone...

Yikes! The Climax Blues Band opened for him, Edgar and Rick at the concert I went to. The lead guitar player from that band did a long, loud slide solo that had my ears thrashed before Johnny even came onOriginally Posted by Al.C
The Edgar Winter Band was also excellent. I always thought they were just OK, but they were super tight with their live show.
Couldn't tell you about the Climax Blues Band, but the Edgar Winter Group was ALWAYS an amazing band. I cut my teeth on Ronnie Montrose, and they had Derringer working with them in '74 for "Shock Treatment".Originally Posted by Stevo
thats tone!!! great playing, I love that groove.
My dad told me about a time he went to see the Edgar Winter Group and after a couple songs rick derringer came out, then Johnny, all completely spontaneous! haha
They were great together. Did your Dad tell you anything else about concerts in those days?Originally Posted by ledzepp29
Dan Hartman (Edgar Winter Band) was playing a dual neck bass/6-string guitar on that song Free Ride, and he bent down to grab a joint (doobie, doober, fattie, whatever ) from the front row, took a big hit and passed it back.. that was pretty common in those days.
I was at a Thin Lizzy concert once, and remember the security guards commenting that they were stoned from 2nd hand smoke
I love that song. I only have Johnny's version, don't think I've heard Rick's.
My hair gets longer as the beat gets stronger
Great rendition and tone Stevo. Man, your recordings are always awesome... I'd really should be leaning to produce recordings like this.
Gibson Les Paul Traditional • 57 Classic +/57 Classic
Norman Folk Acoustic Guitar
Blackheart Little Giant
Ahhh I love that tune. Ain't nothing better than groove rock. A loving tribute indeed.
