I mentioned Simon a couple posts ago 'cause he and his band played at my birthday party at
the Lakeside in August.
I was lucky enough to get to take Simon into the studio years back to produce a couple of his recordsBug Bite Daddy & Look At Me I'm Cool both on Upstart/Rounder.
Simon is a monster guitar player who can make sidewalk cracking shifts in sound and style
with just his hands and his head.
Years ago in an attempt to convince my parents that I actually knew
how to play the guitar I got Simon to teach me to play a couple jazz standards.
Simon still teaches
guitar and commutes to his lessons on a Chicago Era Schwinn Madison Track Bike.
Well, Gibson Guitars put a story up about Simon on their website.
I urge you to check it out and go to Simons site too and grab
a couple cd's.
