ABOUT THE MAN
I haven't really started work on this page yet, so I'll just include a few
quotes from a mail that Gathering member Todd sent me:
"geordie was quoted somewhere - don't
remember which article..that the guitar on much of
the revelations record was a half step low (Eb -
like other greats such as eddie van halen,
hendrix, srv etc.) not because of them mind you,
just more of an accident i gather."
"geordie related to the tuning "epiphany" something
like this: "someone (connie?) told me the guitar
was a half step low on revelations" - 'er
something to that effect. and so he liked it and
continued from then on but taking it a step
further on fire dances. so i guess the impetus is
the 1/2 step (Eb) on revelations, then something
majical (or not) happened (in iceland maybe) and
geordie took it a bit further to D standard to
give us the most grandiose sound ever, first heard
on fire dances."
"this guitar radically changed what we did" - Geordie's '54 Gibson ES295
I'll add stuff as & when I find it - if you have anything Geordie-related, please mail
me (firstname.lastname@example.org) - I'm keen to see this site grow!
