:In the San Francisco section was another thing I liked -- John Cippolinaís guitar & amp. Itís cool because itís so damned weird - itís a Fender Twin sitting on top of kind of 15" bottom, a big old tape-driven echoplex taped sideways to each side of the Twin and on top of the whole mess SIX Wurlitzer horns that looked like trombone bells which stuck out a few feet. A row of truck lights indicated which gizmo was on at any given time. It looked like something that the band on Fat Albert would play through in their cartoon junkyard. Cippolina, leader of Quicksilver Messenger Service, is dead, probably killed by harmful rays emitted by this jerry-rigged pile of tolex. If youíve never heard him - his soloing made Jerry Garcia seem succinct.
NAH, NAH, NAH, gonna have a good time! Hey,hey,hey!!
