    I already knew this story, but I love reading it again. Lee Hazlewood’s importance to Eddy’s career and sound can’t be overlooked.

    Everyone should check out Hazlewood’s “Love and Other Crimes”. It’s an incredible record.

    This is still my favorite sing to play. It's one of the first songs I learned as a kid and it was the first song I played when I got my first Gretsch and every one since. It's a great story too.

    I always liked Rebel Rouser. It is simple, yet the tune catches me and I can't stop playing it over and over in my head. And yes, when I bought my Gretsch, it was the first thing I played on it.

    So, grain silo, not water tank?

    Can I say that I'm just happy Duane (82 years young) is still with us?

    Grain silo....that's awesome!
    I do think RR was maybe the first or second song I played on my 5120. Pretty sure it was the first after I installed TV Classics.

    Shattered my very being, it did. There's another video of a church choir singing in a grain silo. Lots of natural reverb.

    What else do I "know" that's false?
