Default Brian Setzer about George

Brian who [img]graemlins/thinker.gif[/img]

the Stray Cats singer/guitarist, who I have seen talking about George before

Here are some words from an interview in a magazine calld Humo, we have it here, don't know if it is international.

Anyway, with thanks to Abbey Road's newspage

Some excerpts from an interview Humo had with Brian Setzer of the Stray Cats: Q. George Harrison reportedly always called you Eddie.

A. (laughs) Yes, because of Eddie Cochran. He saw my Gretsch guitar, my blonde quiff en said with a British accent: 'Hello Eddie, how are you?' I've only met George four or five times.

Q. How did you call him?

A. Sir George (laughs). A wonderful guy, deep down he was probably more rockabilly than me. In any case he knew more about Carl Perkins than me - my favourite guitarist. George had a wonderful sense of humour, dry as a bone. What do you want, an Englishman. Without any doubt he was the most underestimated Beatle. Don't forget that in every Beatlesong there was a great guitar solo, and George thought of the riffs. (Sings the riff to Day Tripper) De-dudududedèèè-dudèè...

Q. And don't forget : the opening chord to A Hard Day's Night.
A. (Shouts enthousiasticly) 'Klèng! I still remember that as a child I tried to dig out what chord that was. (Wings his arm) Klèng! Klèng! And it never sounded like George. Klèng!

Q. Did you ever play with him?

A. One night, at a party in the house of Dave Stewart. George played Paperback Writer and I sang along. That's it. But at least I can say to my children that I ever played with George Harrison. (laughs). .....

Q. Last question: you played with lots of legends, is there anyone missing from that list?

A. (immediately) McCartney. I want to make with him a kickass rockabilly record: me on guitar, he on vocals and bass. I think it would be good, I think I can kick it up a nudge. A few years ago he made a solid rocking record, Run Devil Run, with David Gilmour of Pink Floyd on guitar. When I was listening to it, I thought: 'Go away, Dave, let me do it.' I would ask him, but you can't call him just like that after evening dinner. Years ago he invited me for a Buddy Holly party at his house. I couldn't go because I was playing with the Stray Cats that evening. I haven't heard from him since then. But you can always keep dreaming, you know: it's nice to have a dream.

i LOVE Brian!! I kissed him on July 16th, 1982 at 4:45pm eastern time, US!!

This is my first time ever posting a pic. Hope it works:
[img] C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Sue's Stuff\BEATLES [/img]

If this doesn't work, i'm an idiot. It is a pic from February 1987 of (l to r) Slim Jim Phantom, Dave Edmunds, Brian, Jeff Lynne, George, Jim Keltner, and Dylan.

July 16, 1982 was a Friday.

That would be unforgettable, Brian and Paul doing a kickass recording of rockabilly. If that were ever to come off, I would sure love to hear that!

What a wonderful story and yet another interesting glimpse into George's musical impact and infuence. (And yeah, George was an AWESOME rockabilly player. Just LISTEN to "Live at the BBC!" George ROCKED)! [img]graemlins/thumbsup2.gif[/img]
