Exactly who I'd been meaning to add.
...& from Isbell's band, Sadler Vaden can be seen regularly playing his burst SG.
Pure SG; DOA 1983
Aqui con 2 SGs
If you like listening to AC/DC’s singer Brian Johnson, he had a band before this, Geordie, they were glam rock. They had an SG player for some years only, Micky Bennison. I personally prefer their original guitarist Vic Malcolm and his Teles and Stratos.
Here a video:
But, there are a lot of famous SG players, has someone mentioned Rolling Stone’s and Beatles’ guitarists/bass player? Keith Richards and Mick Taylor of Stones and George Harrison and John Lennon of Beatles.
Here the photos:
Good heavens! Geordie! That takes me back to my youth!
Nice picture of George Harrison with his ’64 Standard. This is the guitar I mentioned previously in this thread; the one he gifted to Pete Ham of Badfinger and which sold at auction for in excess of half a million dollars. I like the way George wears the guitar up high, in the 1960’s beat group style!
I’d not seen Keef Richards playing an SG, nor Bill Wyman with his EB/SG bass. Mick Taylor, who joined the Stones in 1969, was a frequent Gibson user. His SG Standard was featured on the album cover for the “Get Your Ya Yas Out” live album. Here is an outtake photo featuring Charlie Watts, a donkey, some drums and said SG:
Here is Mick Taylor, playing his first ever show with the Stones in London Hyde Park:
That SG looks so cool and from seeing this in my early teenage years, I always wanted an SG with a Bigsby. So a couple of years ago when I got my ’61 RI, that is what I fitted:
I wonder what happened to Mick Taylors SG? Also, what kind of daft price might it go for if auctioned now?
Finally, in the course of my “research” today, I came across a YouTube clip of the Hyde Park concert. Initially I was not going to post it. However, I changed my mind; in addition to The Stones, you get enthusiastic African drummers, a half-hearted stage invasion and Hells Angels doing a daft dance. What’s not to like?
i'm a big fan of drive by truckers but didn't know ( some/all ? ) of those sounds are from SGs! Woo hoo!
My user name here is NMA. It stands for New Model Army -- the best unknown band that ever existed.
New Model Army have neen around since the '80s and are still making great music. Thirty-five years! For all that time, the frontman only used SGs. They are one of my favorite bands and because of them I had to own an SG.
Not a typical SG sound, but it serves the song:
Wasn't Baby Snakes a luthier-built SG copy? Or did Frank play actual SGs too?
Loves me some Zappa, no matter what guitar he's playing.
Alice Cooper needs visuals to appreciate:
Another SG player to bring to the Western world.
Have been learning Tai Chi for over a year [ the 73 Form ] and am freaking sick of "meditaion" and yoga music. Some classical and older R&B is working for me. But I need something more my style, so today, Youtube, and as we all know AI's are always right, and sent this to my preferences. Are you familiar with subtitles and air guitar?
Second video is live and the band shows some doom influences.
Before something grabs my attention, this needs to be posted. This is a talented fine band that is the bastion of political correctness.
by new players I figured you meant current, maybe younger, check out Wilco with Jeff Tweedy, he plays SGs primarily; Nels Cline is the main lead guitarist but Jeff get his licks in too; try searching these two vid titles on youtube:
Wilco - Random Name Generator - Later... with Jools Holland - BBC Two
Impossible Germany (Live) - Wilco [HD]
Both are cool jams, crank 'em up! (2nd one is especially a Nels showcase)
Something different ?
I know the original poster said no metal....but I can't help myself....behold classic Priest.
