Around 2005 or 2006, I spotted something on craigslist that I wanted and agreed to meet up at the guy’s house. When he told me his address, I was shocked – it was a less than 3 minute drive from my house and he had, to say the least, a large and impressive collection of guitars and amplifiers. This was pretty odd to find in our neighborhood and we hit it off immediately.I don’t recall exactly what I was buying (or selling), but what I do remember is that he kept putting guitars in my hands to check out, many of which weren’t even for sale – we were just geeking out and he was happy to share.I recall two guitars from that day that really moved me: one was a 1982 AVRI Fullerton 50’s Strat that must have been played for hours in damp & smokey bars nightly for years – it was far more beat than most actual 50’s Strats I’ve ever seen. The second one was a 1955 Gibson ES-295 that had been refinished in Sonic Blue:

French electronic music producer Jean-Jacques Perrey died Friday at age 87 following a bout with lung cancer, Rolling Stone has confirmed. Perrey was hailed for his work with early electronic keyboards, particularly Moog synthesizers, pioneering a lighthearted, space-age sound that continues to resonate in contemporary electronic pop. He also acquired notable admirers in hip-hop, particularly for his song “E.V.A.,” which has been sampled by artists including A Tribe Called Quest, Gang Starr, and, later, Pusha T. Perrey released his first albums with collaborator Gershon Kingsley in the 1960s. (The Beastie Boys would later borrow the title of the duo’s 1966 debut, The In Sound From Way Out!, for a 1996 instrumental compilation.) Perrey and Kingsley’s best-known song, “Baroque Hoedown,” long served as soundtrack to the Main Street Electrical Parade at Disney theme parks. Perrey went on to release two dozen more albums, many of which—Moog Indigo, Moog Generation, Moog Mig Mag Moog, Moog

The 40-day Gulf of Mexico voyage continued their 2015 field campaign, contributing to a multi-year Gulf-wide analysis of these oil spills and the marine environment’s response and recovery.
