Sound First

I think "soundwise" for the most part "Tiger" had the sweetest sound. It had that signiture "bell tone" that was just beautiful. The later Tiger spin-offs like Rosebud and Lightning Bolt were not as pure tone wise, even when the midi effects were not being used. I think he was using the Graham Nash Strat (Alligator) during my favorite shows of 71', but I'm not sure. There were a few other guitars he used in 71' as well. But whatever it was he was using during the Fillmore East shows really allowed Jerry to reach the stratosphere (no pun intended) in those jams.

The Travis Bean

I was 16 years old when i saw a tag on a Travis Bean guitar w/ a picture of Jerry on it saying "Travis Bean The best damn production guitar made today" In Roosevelt Feild Mall on Long island!! Two week's later i saw him playing one @ The Calderone Concert Hall In Hempstead NY and the opening Sugaree Blew me away and I've been loving that sound ever since !! But i think it was jerry's approach to the different guitars that has made him my favorite guitarist of all time! Oh how i wish i had bought that Travis Bean back in the day!!Rogue

RODGER ALLINSON i saw some input on jerrys guitars while in my opinion everything jerry played was truely magic i have a true love of rosebud and the sond of some of my favorite jerry tunes like "stella blue" "comes a time" china doll' AND those type songs on it i like to sit and listen to how different guitars over the years have their own unique signature on the same tunes

Patti Smith on "Jerry Week"

Patti Smith, who's something of a legend herself, posted this last year, and I think it's one of the most amazing things ever written on Jer:

Jerrys bday

Colorado's back and wants to know, What are YOU doing for Jerrys birthday? August 1st isn't far off and I'm curious what other Jerheads do to honor his memory. Drop a line if you like and let me know. As for me, I will have at least a candle burning somwhere for Jerry.
