Air Force Band, formed a five-member band on the side, ernie ball super locks and played four nights a week on the air base. During his three-year tour, during which he learned to play the standard guitar, Ball fleshed out his repertoire through exposure to a variety of musical genres such as Dixieland, concert band, classical, big band, and jazz.
The in my opinion over the head business manager (Who later ernie ball stingray 5 got hers…thank god.) was now in the position of finding a new guitar company for EVH. There wasn’t anything that jumped out at them. I said “How about if I make a guitar in the interim?” We dont make enough to satisfy the demand but I can promise a great guitar, and we can make him anything he needs. We quickly designed and built a guitar that Im very proud of. Eddie made great music and some decent royalties. We made whatever he needed from double necks to baritones.
I was twenty two……but I want to be 17 again. It’s a blog….I get to. I want to talk about Albert Lee.
