What's Your Name - LYNYRD SKYNYRD - 1977

 

Billboard Hot 100. The band was now a major act,
breaking attendance records worldwide on its tours.
Skynyrd opened for the Rolling Stones in front of
a crowd estimated at up to 500,000 people at the
Knebworth Fair in Hertfordshire, England. After the
show, members of the band hobnobbed backstage
with society's elite-even smoking a joint with actor
Jack Nicholson!
The band's next album, Nuthin' Fancy (1975), was
recorded with new drummer Artimus Pyle, who
replaced Bob Burns (Burns left the band citing
fatigue and health issues). Other big lineup changes
soon occurred-AI Kooper bowed out of being
Skynyrd's producer and midway through the tour
for Nuthin' Fancy (named the "Torture Tour") Ed
King, exhausted by both life on the road and Van
Zant's abusive behavior when drunk, left the band;
this would later prove to be a life-saving move. In
December 1975, female background vocalists, The
Honkettes (Leslie Hawkins, JoJo Billingsley, and
Cassie Gaines) were added. Mega-producer Tom
Dowd was brought on to produce the band's next
album Gimme Back My Bullets. Dowd agreed to
produce the album only on the conditions that the
band follow his zero tolerance policy for drunkenness
and that they rehearse consistently at a set time. At
the recommendation of Honkette Cassie Gaines, her
brother, guitarist Steve Gaines was added to Lynyrd
Skynyrd. Gaines brought back the three-guitar fury
to the Skynyrd sound and very shortly after joining,
took part in the live album, One More for the Road.
Gaines appeared on the band's next studio album,
Street Survivors (1977). Initially, it seemed like this
album would be a disaster. Producer Tom Dowd
left midway through the recording to finish a Rod
Stewart album, and initial impressions of the album
were lackluster at best. The finished product turned
out to be a miracle and is considered by many to be
Skynyrd's best album. It went platinum and reached
#5 in the US. Unfortunately the album will always
be associated with the tragic events that happened
three days after its release. On October 20, 1977,
while en route to a gig at Louisiana University,
Skynyrd's chartered tour plane ran out of fuel and
crashed into a swamp in Gillsburg, Mississippi. This
crash killed Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, Cassie
Gaines, and Dean Kilpatrick (road manager). As an
eerie coincidence, the cover of the original edition of
Street Survivors depicted the band in flames. After
the tragedy, that cover was replaced with a different
shot, sans flames.
MCA released a compilation album, Gold and
Platinum in 1979. That same year, the surviving
members performed "Freebird" at Charlie Daniel's
5th annual Volunteer Jam, at the Nashville Municipal
Auditorium. This performance was the impetus
behind the Rossington-Collins band, formed in
1980. Female singer Dale Krantz was added along
with former Skynyrd bassist Leon Wilkeson and
keyboardist Billy Powell. This short-lived band
released two albums between 1980 and 1982. Other
offshoot bands included the Artimus Pyle Band (Pyle
wouldn't join the Rossington-Collins band because
he didn't approve of Krantz fronting the band)
formed in 1981, the Allen Collins Band, formed in
1983, and Rossington, formed in 1986.
To commemorate the tenth anniversary of the crash,
Lynyrd Skynyrd reunited in 1987 with surviving
members Rossington, Powell, Wilkeson, Pyle, and
King. Allen Collins, paralyzed from a 1986 drunk
driving accident, singed on as musical director, and
new members, vocalist Johnny Van Zant (Ronnie's
younger brother) and guitarist Randall Hall (from
the Allen Collins Band) were added. Allen Collins
died on January 23, 1990 from complications caused
by pneumonia. The following year, Lynyrd Skynyrd
recorded its first studio album since the airplane
tragedy, Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991, which was produced
by Tom Dowd, and in 1996, a documentary entitled
Freebird ... The Movie was released. The band's place
in history was cemented on March 13, 2006, when it
was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Lynyrd Skynyrd is an icon that has forever impacted
the American cultural landscape and now, more than
three decades later, is still going strong.
Performance Notes
Lynyrd Skynyrd's sixth offering, Street Survivors
(1977), was among the band's most successful
albums, reaching platinum status and peaking at #5
in the US. Sadly, it was the last album recorded with
the original lineup. Among the highlights of Street
Survivors was "What's Your arne:' a ignature song...

 

...now-apprehensive band had to do the gig, if only to
get gas money for the trip back to Ohio. To everyone's
surprise, the band kicked ass as a power trio and would
consequently retain this format. A lucky break came
in the form of a last-minute slot opening up for The
Who in Pittsburgh, PA. Pete Townsend took a liking
to Walsh, referred to him as "America's answer to all
the English flash guitarists," and brought the James
Gang out for its European tour. After the tour, the
James Gang released The James Gang Rides Again,
which featured one of its all-time classics, "Funk #49."
The band's next album, Thirds, was Walsh's last studio
album with the band. In addition to tour burnout,
Walsh started to feel restricted by the confines of the
trio format. This precipitated his departure from the
James Gang after the live release from Carnegie Hall,
James Gang Live in Concert, which was recorded live
with no studio overdubs or fixes.
After leaving the band, Walsh moved to Boulder,
Colorado and took six months off from guitar,
spending time on his radio hobby. In 1972, he
released his first solo album, Barnstorm, which had
a more fleshed out sound with keyboards, synthesizers,
and vocal harmonies. Walsh's next album,
The Smoker You Drink, the Player You Get, was his
breakthrough album, peaking at #6 on the charts.
The album featured one of his most recognizable
songs, the classic "Rocky Mountain Way." Tragedy
struck in 1973 when Walsh's baby daughter was
involved in a car accident and died shortly thereafter.
This incident forever changed Walsh's life and
propelled his self-abusive personality. Residue of
the tragic event is evident in the title of his next two
releases, So What in 1976, and the live album, You
Can't Argue With a Sick Mind. After the loss of his
daughter, Walsh did not have the strength to continue
a solo career and joined the Eagles in 1976, replacing
Bernie Leadon.
With Walsh on board, the Eagles recorded the
landmark Hotel California, one of the best selling
albums of all time. The album was #1 for eight nonconsecutive
weeks on the album charts and featured
two #1 singles-"Hotel California" and "New Kid in
Town." In 1978, Walsh recorded another solo effort,
But Seriously Folks, which featured the signature
Wal h classic "Life's Been Good" It took the Eagles
two-and-a-half year to rele oll '-up album,
The Long Run, but it was worth the wait. The album
reached #1, earned the Eagles a GRAMMY®, and
spawned three Top 10 singles-"Heartache Tonight,"
"I Can't Tell You Why," and "The Long Run." After
The Long Run, the Eagles took a "fourteen-year
vacation," disbanding until 1994's reunion album,
Hell Freezes Over, a mixed live/studio set that hit
#1 immediately upon release. Now older and wiser,
the Eagles reunited on the condition that everyone
stay clean and sober, prompting Walsh to check into
rehab. In 1998, the Eagles were inducted into the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and to this day, continue
to forge ahead, bucking the ever-changing musical
climate. In 2007, the Eagles released The Long Road
to Eden, the band's first studio album since 1979.
In the period since the Eagles' comeback, Walsh
recorded a slew of solo albums including There Goes
the Neighborhood, You Bought It: You Name It, The
Confessor, Got Any Gum?, and MTV Unplugged,
among others. He also regrouped with the James
Gang in 1996 at an election rally for President
Bill Clinton. With Walsh back in the band, the
James Gang has made several television appearances
including The Drew Carey Show, and has since
performed and toured sporadically.

Performance Notes
Despite his reckless image and his ballsy style, Joe
Walsh is a studied musician with a firm grasp on
music theory. He minored in music at Kent State
University and later received an honorary doctorate
in music from Kent. Growing up, Walsh started on a
diet of Beatles and Rolling Stones, learning George
Harrison's lines note-far-note. He later moved on to
the solos of Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck, meticulously
copying every nuance. This determination, combined
with his relentless gigging schedule, nurtured a
refined, yet powerful guitar stylist.
"Rocky Mountain Way" is one of Walsh's personal
favorite solos. The song is basically an extended
blues, enhanced with slide guitar and talk box. Walsh
nailed the slide parts in one take. After the first take,
Walsh wanted to do another, like most musicians
would, just to make sure. Everyone in the studio
unanimously agreed that it was a perfect run and told
Walsh "you're done." The rest is history.

 

... experience, having previously played with the moderately
successful MS Funk (a band that had opened for
Kiss). Initially, Shaw didn't know much about Styx
and actually looked down on them. He wasn't interested,
but went to the audition anyway and wound up
getting the gig without even touching his guitar. He
sang "Lady" with DeYoung and because he could hit
the high notes, DeYoung said "we want you in the
band."
Shaw made his debut, playing guitar, singing, and
writing/co-writing several songs on the band's next
album, Crystal Ball. The album did moderately
well, but it was the band's next album, The Grand
Illusion, that would take Styx into the big time.
The album went multi-platinum and "Come Sail
Away," a fantasy-themed single from that album
hit #8 in the US. Styx's next effort, Pieces of Eight,
also went multi-platinum. By this point, Shaw had
been making his mark on the band's sound. Pieces
of Eight featured three singles penned by Shaw,
"Renegade," "Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)," and
"Sing for the Day." The album Cornerstone followed
in 1979 and contained the bands biggest hit "Babe,"
which hit #1 on the charts. Cornerstone veered away
from the prog-rock sounds of previous efforts and
into a more pop/rock vein. As a result, its more mainstream-
friendly sound went multi-platinum, peaking
at #2 on the album charts. The bands momentum
continued with Paradise Theater, which also went
multi-platinum and was the only Styx album to
reach #1. "Snowblind," one of the songs from the
album caused controversy when activist Tipper Gore,
among others, accused the track of containing backwards,
satanic messages.
Although the band was on top of the world, not all
was well in Styx land. Around the time Shaw joined
the band, DeYoung suffered a nervous breakdown
and went for a stay at a psychiatric center. After
his recovery, he brought his wife and daughter on
the road. The DeYoungs were devout Catholics,
which created a major lifestyle conflict with the
band and brought about increasing intrapersonal
tension. Artistic tensions also came to a boil among
the band's songwriters-DeYoung's vision saw the
band going into a more theatrical direction while
Shaw and Young were pushing for a harder, more
rockin' sound. DeYoung got his way with the band's
next platinum album, Kilroy Was Here. The album
was a concept album that spawned the legendary
mega-hit "Mr. Roboto." DeYoung was also hellbent
on making a film version of Kilroy Was Here,
much to the chagrin of the other band members.
The movie was ultimately abbreviated to a fifteenminute
short film (costing Styx $1.5 million) to be
played on the Kilroy tour, which was already an
over-the-top, theatrical affair that had band members
wearing costumes and reciting dialogue. The tour's
ultra-elaborate production proved to be a nightmare
for the crew. Gargantuan sets had to be transported
daily from arena to arena, and numerous technical
snafus plagued the production. DeYoung didn't make
the situation easier. Whenever the film projectors
failed and the Kilroy film couldn't be shown,
DeYoung would refuse to sing and the show would
be over-not a good move considering ticket sales
were already drastically declining. It got so bad that
the last round of the tour was suddenly cancelled.
Tension in the band was at an all-time high and a
breakup was all but inevitable. During this period of
uncertainty, A&M released a live album, Caught in
the Act, which featured material from the Kilroy Was
Here and Paradsie Theater tours. The band went on
hiatus and Shaw and DeYoung pursued solo careers,
each releasing several solo albums. In 1990, after
extensive negotiations, the members of Styx decided
to record another album. DeYoung called Shaw to
start pre-production but got a shocker on the phone.
Shaw, with the aid of A&R legend John Kalodner,
had formed a new band, the Damn Yankess, which
featured Ted Nugent and Jack Blades, and was in the
process of recording an album. Glen Burtnick, who
had a deal as a solo artist with A&M Records, was
brought in as a replacement for Shaw and joined Styx
while they were still recording Edge of the Century.
During the negotiations for this album, DeYoung
used his clout to revamp the financial terms of the
band in his favor. He made himself the sole producer
of the album, thus getting points from the album,
excluding the others in the band.
Also, rather than split the publishing equally as
had been done previously, each songwriter now
solely owned his publishing, and at this point, only
DeYoung and James Young were writing songs for
the album. DeYoung also somehow managed to get...

After Blood, Sweat & Tears, Stern returned to Boston and played with saxophonist

Jerry Bergonzi (who he met through his teacher, the late Charlie Banacos). He also took

over Bill Frisell's spot in trumpeter Tiger Okoshi's Tiger's Baku, a band that Frisell helped

put together. In 1979, Stern landed his next big gig, with drummer Billy Cobham. During

a gig with Cobham at the now-defunct Bottom Line in New York City, Miles Davis (at the

suggestion of saxophonist Bill Evans) came to check out Stern. He liked what he heard

and Stern got the ultra high-profile gig for Davis's 1981 comeback tour. It was a major

milestone in Stern's career, and one that catapulted him into jazz stardom.

Stern played on three Miles Davis albums: The Man With the Horn, which featured a

burning solo on the first cut "Fat Time" (named in Stern's honor for both his great timefeel

and his at-the-time, corpulent physique); We Want Miles, a great live album; and Star

People, which also featured guitarist John Scofield, who was recruited as a second guitarist

because of Stern's then drug and alcohol problem. Having gradually become unreliable,

Davis ultimately let Stern go, to sober up.

During this time, Stern reconnected with Jaco Pastorius, playing in his Word of Mouth

band. They also played together nonstop when Stern lived above 55 Grand Street, a New

York City jazz club they played at since its inception (not to be confused with the 55 Bar

on Christopher Street, where Stern currently plays twice a week when he's in town). Jaco

wound up crashing at Stern's pad and the two were inseparable, playing at all hours of

the day and blowing lines over changes. Alas, they were also doing "white lines" to the

point of losing control. Stern checked into rehab, and in 1985, the cleaned-up guitarist

rejoined the Miles Davis band. Pastorius, however, never cleaned up. The drugs and alcohol

had severely impacted his mental state and behavior for the worse, and in 1987, during

an altercation with a bouncer outside a nightclub in Florida, he was tragically beaten

to death.

Since his tenure with Miles Davis, Stern has gone on to perform and record with

Michael Brecker, the Brecker Brothers, Bob Berg (with whom he co-led the Mike Stern/

Bob Berg band), Jaco Pastorius's Word of Mouth band, Steps Ahead, David Sanborn, Joe

Henderson, George Coleman, Ron Carter, Jim Hall, and Pat Martino, among others.

Stern has also recorded numerous solo albums-the first being Neesh, in 1983, which

was recorded for Trio (a Japanese label), right after Stern first left Miles Davis's band. It

was recently re-released, but only in Japan (on Absord Music Japan). In 1986, Stern

signed a deal with Atlantic Records and recorded Upside Downside. This marked the

beginning of a 15-year association with Atlantic Records that spawned ten albums and

three Grammy nominations. In 2004, with the demise of the jazz department at Atlantic

Records, Stern recorded his first album for ESC Records, These Times (now available on

BHM Records). In 2006 Stern moved to Heads Up International Records for his release

Who Let the Cats Out?, which garnered Stern a fourth Grammy nomination. A live DVD,

Live-New Morning The Paris Concert was also released in 2006, by independent

German label, lnakustik. This DVD featured Richard Bona, Dennis Chambers, and Bob

Franceschini. In 2009, a sequel to Live-New Morning The Paris Concert was released

and features Tom Kennedy, Dave Weckl, and Bob Franceschini. Big Neighborhood,

Stern's most explosive guitar album to date, was also released in 2009 and featured virtuoso

guitarists Steve Vai and Eric Johnson, among others. Stern's earlier Atlantic recordings,

with the exception of Play and Voices (which are still available through Warner

Music), are now distributed by Wounded Bird Records, a CD-only re-issue label.

Despite Stern's enormous status as a world-renowned jazz-fusion guitar virtuoso, his

prodigious technical abilities (which he seamlessly combines with a heartfelt lyricism),

and his impressive history onstage with countless jazz legends, Stern is a humble and

grounded musician whose sole mission is to constantly grow as a player. "The more I

know, the less I know" is one of Stern's favorite quotes, and it is indicative of his approach

to music, as a neverending quest.

For this Signature Licks edition we have enlisted Mike Stern as a consultant. He offers

not only unique analytical and historical insight for each selection but also a special private

ONE ON ONE WITH MIKE STERN

What was the first jazz solo that had an impact on you?

Well that's a hard question because my mom used to playa lot of jazz records so I always

heard jazz around the house. I started playing when I was 12, but I was 17 when I started

getting more into jazz. I guess it was something off a Miles Davis record. One of the

first records I used to scope was Herbie Hancock's Maiden Voyage. That was one of the

first albums that I checked out and tried to play along with. At the time, I was listening to

more blues, rock, and Motown, and playing along by ear.

When you played along with Maiden Voyage, were you soloing over it or were you

trying to play the actual parts?

I was doing a little bit of both-the actual parts and the solos.

Do you remember the first solo you transcribed?

Yeah, it was a Joe Pass solo. I picked a blues because it's an easy form and Joe's solo

had a lot of inside bebop. It was a medium swing, not a real fast tempo.

Did he playa lot of sixteenth notes in the solo?

He was playing a lot of eighth notes, just a lot of really cool bebop lines. Joe was a very

clear, inside player in a lot of ways. He didn't go outside the key too much, and it was very

clear what he did when he did go out, the way he outlined it. He was amazing like that.

There was a lot of bebop vocabulary; he used to play with Oscar Peterson. It took me

about three weeks to transcribe the solo. I had to slow the record player down, which

almost ruined the record. Finally I taped it and finished the rest. Later on I showed it to

some people and they said most of it was wrong [laughs]. But doing it myself was amazingly

helpful.

After you learned the solo did you take licks from it and use them in your own playing?

A little bit, and some of the phrasing, too. It's like when you read a book or short storyyou

don't memorize every word; you just take certain things away from it and then enough

of the remaining information goes unconsciously into your brain, or in the case of music,

into your ear. Over time, if you take from enough different solos from different people, you

don't sound like just one guy.

For a long time now, I've been more into copping piano and saxophone solos. But

when I was first transcribing, it was guitar because it was my own instrument-and that

was hard enough. But like I said, transcribing lines for myself was really helpful; I got a lot

more out of it that way than from reading it from a book.

Were you writing out the solos?

Yeah, I wrote them down. Then I'd read through it, not so much to cop licks but more like

reading a magazine or a short book, where you might remember a couple of phrases and

quote from it-you don't memorize every word. Some people go too far and memorize the

whole solo, but the idea is to learn how to phrase unconsciously and then twist it around

your own way, as a kind of springboard for your own ideas. That way you get a vocabulary

in a certain style; for instance, if you want to work on your bebop vocabulary, you do

a lot of bebop players. I did a bunch of guitar players at first-Joe Pass, Jim Hall, Wes

Montgomery, George Benson-and then I got into horn players.
