    Thanks for making me spit coffee all over my keyboard, I am still laughing.
    I remember going to a wedding, and the choir was singing this song, my 11 year older brother and I were laughing. We got the cold stare from the Preacher. My quick witted Aunt who was pretty cool, explained why we were laughing so much. She got us out of hot water by saying, "those boys just love Jesus". She has been gone for about 9 years, and this memory still makes us laugh today.

    Thank You for making my day!

    Searching youtube these came up. This can be played just about anyway and I like it. Except the Ivan Jack one is horrid IMO.

    As always Hank's playing is stellar, but the disco style backing hasn't aged well.

    I assume the songwriters (the two guitarists) have made a lot of money from the song over the years. Bob Spickard still tours with the original bassist. The other guitarist Brian Carman died a few years ago.

    I love all versions of Pipeline including the BSO version on the trombones. Fantastic song.

    I still use my ancient Wurly like that. Mine's a 140B, but without seeing that one closer, I can't tell if it's a 120, 140B, or 145. Nothing like that Wurlitzer "honk".

    I’ve heard him do that live, and it was impressive.

    I just read in Vintage Guitar, that Rich Fifield, guitarist for the Astronauts died recently.

    Their big hit from 1963. Very drippy!



    The Astronauts were post secondary students in Colorado when they recorded this. Never had seen the ocean.

    From what I understand, two of the Astronauts died within a few days of one another. Jim Gallagher, their drummer, died November 20. After his years with the Astronauts, Jim Gallagher owned the Dairy Queen in the neighborhood where I spent my teen years, although I don’t know that I ever so much as walked in the place.

    Looking back, the music scene in the Denver/Boulder area was formidable. The Astronauts were from Boulder, and likewise Rick Roberts from Firefall. Randy Meisner spent some time in the Denver music scene, before joining Poco, and subsequently the Eagles. I didn’t appreciate it at the time, but there were some great players in that region.
