Bob selling guitars from his personal collection

I thought some of the guitar players in here might find it interesting that Bob has quite a few guitars from his personal collection up for sale: http://www.houseofbob.com/garagesale.html When I saw it I was a bit troubled by the fact that i already own a Les Paul because then it is hard to justify ...

Re: New Petra Project

Hi John

Did you ever attend a Petra concert after you left the band and if so what did you think and how did it feel?

Re: Guitarist Discussion

Now that we have mainly focused on those who are overrated, perhaps we should focus on those who are underrated? Not that he is completely unknown at all and has not been given any credits I would still point to Joe Bonamassa as a guitar player I would say is underrated to some extent. With very few...

Re: Guitarist Discussion

However, if you have not heard a solo with more than four notes, you have either not listened a lot or not listened very carefully. Start at 1:10: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCj0FRoc2Uk I was being somewhat tongue in cheek. I know that a lot of what he does is more complex than it sounds, but ...

Re: Guitarist Discussion

Keaggy ... His style however does not really work for me but that is a personal thing. What style? Keaggy's music is extremely diverse. It's one of the reasons he's never been a mainstay on any record label, because he would make a straight ahead rock n' roll album followed by an acoustic instrumen...

Re: Guitarist Discussion

Another great Angus quote when asked what it was like to be one of the best guitarists in the world: "I'm not even the best guitarist in AC/DC." I would agree with him on that. I really like his playing and while admitting that it is a lot harder to play his stuff than you would initially think in ...

Re: Guitarist Discussion

I agree with you. Especially about Knopfler. Keaggy is a great guitar player. His style however does not really work for me but that is a personal thing.

For me, the real band was John, Johnny, Bob, Ronny & Louie.
I guess many would say that.

If that team is not available, I would rather see a version of Petra where John and Bob were simply presented as Petra than seeing them as being two out of four or five members of Petra.

Re: New Petra Project

Although when you have a "revolving door band" like Petra, it's hard to say who the "real" band is. :lol: Defining the "real" band by fewer members would make it less of a revolving door band. If the bass player never was a member of the band then Petra did not lose a member when he started to do o...

Re: New Petra Project

Well, some members of Petra were essentially hired guns, without equity, ownership, creative input or ability to borrow against royalties. There can be legal reasons (contracts, business arrangements) for not bringing new members in. It's all relative. Consider The Stones. Given how things turned o...

Re: New Petra Project

Some bands bring one or more additional players when they are playing live. The Paul Coleman Trio had a permanent 4th member who played electric guitar in their live shows, but he was always in the background and never got a spotlight even during his solos, which I always found a little odd. I neve...

Re: New Petra Project

Some bands bring one or more additional players when they are playing live. I think that is the way to go if, for instance, you cannot go without the extra guitar, the keyboards or whatever. The other stuff is just not really honest in any way. The sing a long concerts by John Schlitt and Greg X Vol...
