Guitar Casualties

14 May

OK, yes, of course, as tragic fallout of the flooding in Nashville this doesn’t remotely compare to the  loss of lives and homes. But as a guitar player of some 30 years (ulp) and a deep devotee of Johnny Cash, this is a heartbreaking bit of news: Soundcheck Nashville, a facility storing the instruments of some 1,000 musicians,  including Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townsend and the Man in Black himself, was submerged in nine feet of water for six days. Most of the gear, of course, is ruined. Guess the Good Lord wasn’t willing – the creeks did rise.
