Saturday Matinee – Mull, Martin, Plastics, Grisman & Garcia, King & Preston &, um, Willis


Martin Mull in 1973 gets back to his roots in the Lake Erie delta.

Martin Mull’s college roommate was Steve Martin who was no slouch on banjo.

Awesome. I can play the plastic scale, too, but putting it into a high-speed vid makes the grade.

Now THIS is really annoying, so much so that I’m not going to post it here. You’re on you’re own, and I dare you to listen to the whole tutorial.  I couldn’t do it, but I can listen through this:

David Grisman & Jerry Garcia doing B.B. King’s classic “Thrill is Gone.”

To close it out, here’s B.B. King himself with Billy Preston and, um, Bruce Willis on harp. Have a great weekend folks, and remember that most of us can play harp better than Bruce Willis, who’s got no business at all in that lineup.

    I don’t care if he’s tone deaf, I’ll still take Bruce Willis 😀

  2. Jingle Says:

  3. Jingle Says:

    sharp shots.

    LCAS– Didn’t say he was tone deef, just that he’s not that great a harp player to be allowed into that assemblage of awesome talent. Willis was great in Terry Gilliam’s “12 Monkeys.”

  5. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Jingle– Videos every Saturday, .gifs every Friday. The rest of the week is potpourri. 🙂

  6. LC Aggie Sith Says:

    Oh, I know you didn’t, and you’re right, he sure as hell hasn’t earned being up there.

    And call me Aggie 🙂

  7. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Aggie– I’ll try to remember that. After all, you don’t want to be associated with an organization that has kitty ringworm problems.

  8. Petrol Leaf Blower : Says:

    Bruce Willis should also get a lifetime achievement award for the many great films that he had `
