This tour is going to be insane. I can't imagine how huge the sound is going to be with a full complement of intruments. Waiting is painful.
I'm pretty sure those were vinyl. I don't think you can get that kind of shine out of leather.Seraphim wrote:Damn... without Billy, who's gonna use red leather pants on stage???
Billy does have a very compressed, midrangy (I know, not a word) sound that is reminiscent of two guys I'm sure he listened to a lot in his formative years - The great Jack Bruce and the also great Tim Bogert. It is not my favorite tone either (I prefer a bit more warmth), but it is distinctive and there is nothing like it on earth when the Power Twins go off.jem7v wrote:i prefer a full bottom end round clear tone..like stu hamm for instance
to my ears billy,s sound is distorted(dirty) and im not a fan of that
You should check out Dave LaRue.
Dave LaRue is best known for playing with Steve Morse (Dixie Dregs, Steve Morse Band). I saw him live with Planet X. So that's all before he played with Petruccijem7v wrote:yeah,,i know dave larue
