Eddie Martinez and his GMII

Eddie Martinez and his GMII were recently featured in Oregon Home magazine. For those of you who don’t know, Eddie was the go-to guy in NYC in the 80′s and 90′s, and he recorded and played live with Robert Palmer for years. The Monkeys are big fans of Eddie’s playing and tone.

He has also played with Meat Loaf and Run-DMC; toured with Blondie; accompanied Mick Jagger at Live Aid, and performed on movie soundtracks including Pretty Woman and Pretty in Pink. 

These days he writes advertising jingles and regularly performs with his Eddie Martinez Band in and around Portland, OR (his adopted hometown) using his custom Purple/White GMII Head and 2×12.

Jim James and My Morning Jacket

My Morning Jacket played in Raleigh last night and we had the pleasure of hanging with the band and crew from mid-day to load-out. Jim showed us his dual Orangutan rigs and explained how much he loves his monkeys (and bears and owls apparently).

He also had a lot of great ideas, so we hope to do a collaboration with Jim and Co. soon. Safe travels fellas.

BW119 and Tommy Bolin

Way back in 2010, Ossie and I did a recording session with Brad Whitford for a Tommy Bolin tribute record being co-produced by Greg Hampton and Warren Haynes. Brad played his BW119 head alongside original Bolin multi-tracks that had never been made public. Those tracks have now been released as Tommy Bolin and friends Great Gypsy Soul.
