Subject: RE: Origins: Mary Ellen Carter...again
It always stuns me to see him play that guitar. Today that guitar sits in Paul Mills studio in Toronto. Jed and I have played it and I have to tell you, it is a strange feeling to pick up the musical instrument of someone whose music you idolize, and make music on it. Grit Laskin made that guitar, and it plays and sounds better than it looks, and it looks spectacular........

Whenever I play one of Stan's songs, in my mind I imagine Rick Fielding and Stan watching and critiquing........ and Rick carping about me hitting the low E string when I slam a D chord...... LOL. And Paul gets in my case about the same thing.

Saul, I did a concert with Garnet at The Ark in Ann Arbor. It is a hoot to see him so young. Thanks for posting this wonderful video.

All the best,
