    The "as I was" was a pretty humble qualifier, in my eyes.

    Just sayin'.

    What's weird is everytime I read someone saying some comment I made as "Polfus", I feel flattered that I said or wrote something in
    a way that was worth remembering.

    I was all hot about "The Cowboy Song", even though I heard it years
    after everyone else.

    I know what you mean, but regardless it still is difficult to read being called "dumb" .

    Well, you're apparently smart enough to read so don't take it too
    seriously. We're all dumb about something at some time.

    I think he did some work with Roger Hodgson of Supertramp.

    I need to get a CD copy of Jailbreak.

    There are some nice twists and turns in the solos on "The Cowboy Song."
    These guys were not yer typical blues box wankers.

    thats his brother in law, or so i heard.. however, text from weblink
    makes no mention of that, so, all lies i guess...

    good article, thanks.

    Supersuckers do a good cover of that one.

    It's funny, y'know - some of the most stupendous guitarists
    are some of the most humble. McLaughlin, Richard Thompson, Tedesco -
    they didn't/don't talk a lot of smack about the skills they have. It
    always seems to be guys rooted in one style or with limited experience
    that have all the attitude.

    Indeed.

    Tommy Tedesco - the ultimate sight reader. Fly specks, he could read. I
    always enjoyed his columns in Guitar Player.

    Tal Farlow was another humble guy. Usually in interviews he would talk
    about the music rather than the guitar, unless he was being interviewed
    specifically for his technique. Spent a good deal of his time as a sign
    painter and enjoying it.

    One of the last CD's I bought was Tal Farlow's "Jazz Masters" from the
    Verve series. If you want to know where Alvin Lee got his jazzy bent, that's
    one to listen to.
