    Default Lew Collins Band

    Thats right...I heard from out old buddy Lew and he showed me a clip of his new band doing Freddy Kings Hideaway, I thought I'd share it with you guys:

    If you just read a post by The Guy Who Invented Fire please understand that opinions change, mind sets change and as players our ears mature...not to mention our needs grow and change. With that in mind, today I may or may not agree with the post you just read!

    Good stuff. Glad to see him doing his thing.

    Sure wish he still dropped in from time to time though. He contributed a lot to this forum.

    This is the one I liked ... as much for the sound of the Tele as anything:

    I am so close to retirement that I could play in a band full time. All I have to do is improve my playing, learn some songs, and find some other musicians more talented than me who will do exactly as they're told. .

    Nice to hear someone do it in a way other than the Cream or Mayer version. Very swampy feel to that one.

    Cool! Lew is a cool guy, glad he is doing well. I like a slower version of Crossroads. It is such a great vocal song, but the way most people play it its just too fast & you can't really feel the song when you sing it that fast.
