Sir Richard Bishop - Spontaneous Collaborations

I've been lucky enough to be able to sit in the same room as Sir Rick whilst he plays guitar. Sitting on a chair in the middle of an empty stage playing an amplified acoustic guitar. Utterly mesmeric. I end up expecting some wizard of oz style reveal where the curtain comes back and there is actually another 20 guitarists helping generate those sounds.

Obviously, there never is just the singular sound of a stone cold genius!

The second best thing about seeing SRB live is that you can pick up the self-released cdrs...this one is from last year.

And it is an absolutely brilliant thing! SRB with Tatsuya Yoshida or Eugene Chadbourne [I've also been lucky enough to see Eugene on banjo with Jimmy Carl Black on drums as a duo..that's a different tale].

any SRB/SCG is always appreciated. Thank you kindly! haven't seen him play since the tour he did opening for bill callahan and i was lucky enough to watch him play 'Morella' live which he stated was a tune he never played live.
