I somehow recalled this mid 90s pop number. By Meredith Brooks.
Portugal. The Man
Julian Lage with a Duo Jet.
Bohemian - you forgot about Billy Gibbons, Jack White, Malcolm Young, David Gilmour, Chris Cheney, Neil Finn, Billy Duffy and many more modern players. These are the guys who turned me onto gretsch.
They are all traditional gretsch players imo
Jimi Hendrix with a Gretsch Corvette:
Bruce Welch from The Shadows:
John Lennon & Little Richard:
And of course, Hank used a Gretsch on 'Nivram'.
Jack White’s played a few Gretsch guitars..
But what is a non-traditional Gretsch player ?
Ok for paul simon (who is expected to play electro-acoustic folk guitars) but the rest are very traditional Gretschy to me. Perhaps the jazz jet of Julian Lage was a real surprise the smooth tone he can get, the others are all rock & roll which is 100% Gretsch territory.
So I take non-traditional as non-usual Gretsch player : Jimi Page
Jimi don't like rock and roll since his very first beginnings :
Jimi has got short hairs at least one day in his life with the Yardbirds :
Jimi like using the tone switch :
Jimi has different careers in life :
1/ as a porn star :
2/ as a baseball player :
Jimi is always wearing black :
Old Jimi gets wiser and wiser :
All this may contain some very fake news, but I don't care speading these kind of fun ones.
Yes, that’s right.
I guess he’s an endorser, although now he play almost only Teles. Still he rocks his Rancher for acoustic numbers.
His Triple Jet is something though. Especially the Copper model.
James Hetfield of Metallica:
Richard Kruspe from Rammstein:
j.s.c., I'm sorry to say it, but that dude isn't Jimmy Page. That's Eric Clapton who didn't come to terms with his Gretsch since he was used to playing a Tele in those days.
I believe it is the same guitar in the photo.
Oh sure. They're all great players too. But I'm interested in seeing Gretsch players, like the Paul Simon pic, that nobody would expect to be using them, or in genres we wouldn't expect. That's always really interesting to me.
Love this post, but that’s Eric...
