I just can't explain why in technical terms, no more than I can explain why I love sweet things to eat. I thought they were great. Because I never made a dime anyway. I may not play what they play, I may not be influenced by their approach, and I may not even put their records on in some cases, but when I hear them I appreciate their dedication and ability nevertheless. The band had its peak of popularity in the 1970s, playing such venues as together with bands such as , and. Would I like to play some more shows? Everybody knows that and has had it happen.
But some of my family members may have some things. No, but that's because I never studied musicians at all. What was I going to sound like? So we'll see about that. But I have spoken to David many times since then. But the sort answer is, no I do not have anything. . I would put my teeth to the horn and play like that, listening to the sound in my head.
If so, are you happy with the final results? Chuck Berry is one of those generational musicians who influenced music itself, to say nothing of the number of musicians he inspired especially guitar-players, although not exclusively. They were all of inferior quality in my own opinion as the original producer. You should be out there touring. And while there are probably some scientists somewhere who did study the love of chocolate, and have come up with all sorts of reasons for it, I don't think you'll ever find an actual chocolate-lover who will explain it to you that way, indeed they'll think you're nuts for asking them to do so. I mean, can anyone explain why they technically like eating, for instance, chocolate? Was Krieger a big influence on your playing? I don't think I can add anything that hasn't been well-said by others. Are you a fan of the Memphis music sound? To this day the story makes him cringe.
It makes no sense to me to approach it that way, literally. So where did they come up with this reincarnation thing? I have to say there are more that I appreciate than those I do not. And that's long before we go to schools to study it. I can't even get my head around the concept of studying music analytically. Actually, if you have to do it, that pretty much defines that it isn't fun. Were any of these shows filmed? That would be like trying to study conversation, or even love.
That was around 1981 or '82, or thereabouts. As for technique, I'm really old-school about that subject. We call it Murphy's Law. I'm just one of the branches. Long term members of the band have included bassist Paul Harwood and drummer Jimmy Ayoub, and Frank's brother Vince on guitar; Frank Marino is the sole continuous member of the band. I love the music, but not any more than I love a lot of other music. I can't say enough about my appreciation for all of them.
I figured, Okay, this is not for me anymore. How does that old line go? A tour is not fun if you have to do it. Plus, in my state of mind, I hung onto that guitar the way a person would grab a piece of shipwreck if he was drowning in the ocean. But music and conversation, love and things of an inner nature I have not, and will not. Because coming from that hippie background, it was not cool to be commercial. Do you have any photos from this tour that you would consider posting online? The exceptions to this are the few remasters of my earlier and later material, that I worked on personally for Just In Time Records. That was one heck of a lineup: Angel, Mother's Finest and Humble Pie opening for Mahogany Rush.
But Marino, whose playing also encompassed elements of jazz, psychedelia, pop, prog, fusion and plenty of blues, never saw himself as a guitar god. I have a long-standing issue with the parent company that grants these sub-licenses. But I can say that, based upon every other release of my material through third-parties after-the-fact, I have yet to have heard any that remained faithful in terms of production or quality. Plans are fools' errands, because they fail or come up somewhat short. I probably will at some point.
I always have a desire to do a new record, every single day. Unless some unexpected event happens with regards to my music, like if my next release suddenly meets with unprecedented demand, I expect that future tours will be of the smaller variety for me. All of these artists planted, and further generations watered. I also rather like Derek Trucks too. But Marino says the relationship with Columbia was strained from the beginning. It feels kind of strange to keep pictures of oneself. I just like it and would love to play with these guys because real cool music would no doubt come out of it.
Those are, in my opinion, superior to the originals, and by a lot. Isn't it simply another form of expression, like painting or poetry? I just listen to it with my ears and my heart, obviously and that sort of communion can not be, nor should not be analyzed on any technical level, in my opinion. Mahogany Rush formed in Montreal during 1970. Certainly it's not impossible that they could be good, but if they are they will be the first ones to have done so, from my point-of-view. I used to always tell people: Business has no business in the music business. I don't think he influenced my actual playing as much as he did my thought-process about music itself, and phrasing.
