Name two American composers who both died in the year 1990............

Aaron copeland and Leonard Bernstein - my 2 favorites, Bernstein being the person I'd most like to meet in this century.

Name one Brazillian composer who was not born in 1685 and who did not die in 1990. Villa Lobos

Yup. thumb Although, I was thinking of Bach, Handel, and Scarlatti...

Trying to hold onto my no google ethics... plays, how sure are you about Outsiders? I'm about 50% only on South Siders. You could talk me into Outsiders pretty easily.

Definitely the Outsiders. Plays, of course you would know. Great little song from a band that went nowhere.

OK, when the Beatles played their infamous 30 minute set at Shea Stadium, who was the opening band? For extra credit, name two of their best known songs (can't say "hits" because they never rose that high).

Some Jefferson Airplane incarnation did it as did Pentangle, but I do not think either was the first. You are probably stumping me.

plays, re: duane im not sure what u r getting at, i am positive gryph is correct about the coricidin, my source is scott freeman's book, "midnight riders" which i read cover to cover several times, being an allmans junkie in my youth.

[Linked Image]

slide guitar was originally called bottleneck guitar because players would use the neck of a broken wine bottle to get the effect.

it was duane who always used a coricidin bottle.

while we are on allmans trivia, who was elizabeth reed? (no google please)

BTW, for the big crowd out there who thinks layla is a guitar masterpeice and witness to eric claptons virtuoisity...the slide in the peice, both the fast first part and the second slow part, is played by duane allman, check the credits.

the slide in "while my guitar gently weeps" is not played by george harrison, its played by eric clapton, who was inspired at the feet of the great duane allman, probably the best slide guitarist who ever lived.

Wasn't Elizabeth Reed a friend of one of the band? I seem to remember reading who she was but can't remember.

I'm wrong. shocked

My source is my memory of reading an interview with Duane Allmann that was printed in Rolling Stone (back when it looked like a tabloid). In it, he said that his favorite slide item was one of those little individual glass bottles of cream you used to get in restaurants when you ordered coffee. Remember them?
