BlueJay Nickel Creek--overrated? (42) RE: Nickel Creek--overrated? 30 Mar 03


Jed Marum- I was backstage at RockyGrass a couple of years ago, and watched Chris Thile trying out a custom guitar. This was before I knew who he was. As I watched, I thought to myself, "this guy is barely an adult, but can play guitar around most everybody I know". Funny, but he seemed a bit nervous about folks watching him play the guitar.
When Nickel Creek took the stage, I realized this was the same guy. What a mandolin player. One of the all time best, IMO.
Chris Thile is so steeped in music that even his guitar playing is way beyond what most guitar players ever realize. Just friggin phenomenal.

Yeah, I like Nickel Creek. I know they can do trad bluegrass, but why I try to pidgeonhole them, it doesn't work. Thanks, BlueJay
