“The Father of Psychedelic Guitar” — RIP   2 comments

I’m not a musician, but I’ve always had an uncanny ear for good sound, and the guitar sound of James Gurley

has stay with me ever since I first heard Big Brother & The Holding Company. His bio will tell you he never has a guitar lesson. His sound was an assimilation of so many sounds reflecting all the things coming together in the sixties. For a lot of us, James “was the real 1960’s”.

Just a few days ago, December 20th, James Gurley passed away in Palm Spring, California. Now he’s up there with so many great six-stringers.
