The Country Pie with Jimmy Rose and I, played in a new place in London back in the late sixties (1969 I think) called the Master Robert Motel. They had music seven nights a week and a board at the front of the stage with the name of the band for each night. When we started playing there regularly they put our name on a board. On the reverse side was the name of the band who had just left. It was Mungo Jerry!!

I love Gretsch guitars. Even the new ones made in Japan are great!! My first Gretsch was the 6120, Chet Atkins model, circa 1960. I still have it and it is still going strong. Check out the video..

I have decided to try a wireless setup. The first receiver and the microphone arrived today. It sounded good enough that I ordered the second receiver, a feedback controller and a new four space rack. The guitar works well without a preamp. Hope all this lives up my expectations.

2 x Line-6 XDV75TR digital wireless systems
1 Countryman E6D ear set  microphone
1 Peavey feedback ferret D
1 Gator 4 space shallow rack.

Phil Brooks at the Iron Horse Saloon, Alliance, Nebraska

During the late 70's and early 80's I performed at the Iron Horse Saloon in Alliance, Nebraska. I recently came across a video that was made of me performing there around 1981. The quality isn't so great since it was recorded on VHS, but it does show the Iron Horse during it's heyday.

Gretsch G-6040 Arch top guitar.

I was fortunate to aquire this guitar a few months ago. It is an archtop jazz styled instrument with enough volume to use acoustically. When plugged in, it has that beautiful, mellow Gretsch tone. This style, I believe, goes back to the guitars Gretsch produced in the forties.
