    Normally he's at Warrior Guitars booth. Their web site suggests they've become a bass-only manufacturer. He's not listed as a performer at the show either.

    BTW - what's the story on the vibrato on that 355? Looks like a Bigsby but the wang bar doesn't look like the stock piece.

    I've seen it before but I don't know the story behind it.

    Looks like a Chet Atkins style Bigsby arm.

    Is it the same red 355 from Roadwork? I really wanted that guitar as a kid in 1973.

    Descriptions are up @ Gruhn's: https://guitars.com/instruments-rick-derringer

    To answer Jeff West's inquiry about the ES335, sadly no, it is not the original guitar but a Gibson Custom Shop copy. See link for details.

    I saw them about that time, at the Houston Coliseum. I've never seen better.

    They opened for Black Sabbath.

    I think I'll listen to my Roadwork cassette today. Nothing like a broken in 45 year old cassette. The haunting mids. After 35 years they start to loosen up.

    Is Edgar's protracted scream still holding up?

    Awesome! And I like watching the bar graph lights on my JVC three head cassette deck from 1989. Oh, the humanity.

    Well, the eighties had some fine cassette decks made , but I believe , and many other experts do too,that the cassette decks made from about 77' to a bit in early 1980, was the pinnacle of cassette deck building. Not many were made and they are rare. They used plastics that can't be made any more. No horizontal flashing lights for us , oh no, we had needles bouncing in half moon ways,(?) How about those cassette cleaners for the deck? Replacing the cotton cleaners. Good times.
    You can tell that I'm passionate about this media and I just know it will come back strong. Still got my mix tapes oh yeah.


    Remember the back of one of the albums, the Edgar Winter Band dressed in glam and heavy make up. Rick pulled it off. He kinda looked like a women. Edgar not so much lol.

    Lucky for you a second company has started making cassettes again. For some time, National Audio in my town has been the only source for new cassettes. Now a French company has started making them again.
    Maybe they will come back strong.

    Are you sure that wasn't Ronnie Montrose, rather than Rick in that album image?

    That's not The Edgar Winter Band [it's Edgar Winter's White Trash, different band] and the band isn't dressed in glam on that album.

    I'm sorry for the confusion. This part of my life I was a cassette guy. We weren't like you high falutin album guys. We didn't has a back picture, or heaven forbid inner album pics, HAH. We had a front cardboard pic usually blank on the other side and we were happy to get that.
