interview With Rik Emmett
"Welcome back. It's Eddie trunk on this week's podcast. Thank you so much for listening We start off as mentioned with Rik Emmett of triumph coming up second and just a bit. It'll be Rachel Bolan of skid row a very, very deluxe expanded double dip addition to great interviews for you this week I. Hope you enjoy him. We start with RIK Emmett right now. How are you rick? I'm Great Eddie how are you? Good how you in Canada how are you home? Yeah, yeah I live in Burlington, which is sort of a western city suburb, of Toronto and It's been great here. Actually you know it's I haven't minded sort of being isolated and. You know it hasn't had too much effect at actually allow me to become a little bit more creative so I've been enjoying myself. Well that's the thing you know all this pandemic time all the artists I've been talking to all seem to have a different take. Some are really chomping at the bit to go out there and do things and others are enjoying the reconnect with family and not used to being home. This long others are taking the time to do really creative things. Right record do streaming videos what what's been the focus for you. In this time I mean you you are semi retired from touring anyway weren't you? Yeah I had sort of stepped back from touring at the beginning of twenty nineteen. So I was getting used to it and I had told my agent. Well, you know I'll go out and try if you want to necessarily have to fly two gigs. But if you put some stuff together that can drive to maybe I'll try some of that and then along came covert thing and those got bumped and canceled and so but I was already getting used to being off the road. anyways. So I don't really miss the road and I mean. I do Miss Playing And and having that I interaction with the crowd and that energy you know but I don't miss you know airplanes and hotels and taxi cabs and all the rest of it. You know a And the thing. That's weird. Eddie like it was almost like a retirement was a great career move for me because. Round Hill records was putting out the triumph stuff said, he would you like us to put a all your back catalog and I went well sure that it'd be great. It's nice to have somebody believing me. So all of the albums that I made after I left triumphed they've just digitally released him and then I was sitting around going I. Think you know I still want record and stuff when I was writing tunes in When I in nineteen, sixty, two, I don the Bob Dylan record, it was just called Bob Dylan and it was just a cousteau Qatar voice voices. You know all my years I've never really done a whole album like that. So I'm going to do a project like that. So I put that out on my website and then I I was. Writing a book of poetry and it looks like a publisher wants to make a deal so that I can do book of poetry and a memoir. So it's like one thing led to another thing about to nosing before I. Knew It. I had like a completely full calendar, and now of course you know I'm doing all of this promos on calling you. What is what is strung out troubadours I saw link for that. What is after the newest thing you're doing? Now Strung out troubadours was a thing. There was a guy named Dave Dunlop who played in my band and he actually went try and fly the reunion Gig in. Sweden in an Oklahoma Day was actually in the in the triumph hand as well playing rhythm. Guitar and Stuff. So Dave and I had a little duo thing like a lot of times my touring and got to the point where I was doing a lot of solo stuff I wanted something else and so I use the piano player for a while and then I kinda got the edge to have a little bit more of a rock and roll approach. So two guitars made it a little bit more kind of versatile and so Dave is the guy and we did it for you and then I said, Hey, you know what? We should do an album together and put it out. We can sell it at emerge table, and so that was the birth of the troubadours and we did three albums. and. Yeah Round Hill bought my rights out to those days still has his side of it. He he didn't sell them. So he stands to make some more mechanical royalty. Whatever there is to be made these days, right Yeah. So I wanNA talk to you. I. WanNa ask you some triumph stuff of course but before. But before that, let's let's let me cover the reason you're calling which you mentioned the release of your albums after triumph ended for you and I think rick that people would probably be surprised to learn how many records there are, and there were a lot of people that sort of. Categorized what you did after triumph as being a jazz guitar, but that's not all you did. You really ventured into a lot of different styles. So for people that especially here in America that maybe didn't follow all that closely some of the stuff you did after triumph tell everybody what you did musically, and how many records there are in the different journeys those records took you on. Okay well, you know settle in folks make yourself a cup of coffee. This is a long story. There there was thirteen that round hill made a deal for and they ran the gamut and when I first got of triumph. So a little bit of sort of ancient history here left eighty eight. I actually made three albums for an indie either had a distribution through universal and in Canada. And those sort of started an evolution or You know I don't know a a mutation change from being sort of Iraqi. Guy To kinda be in a singer Songwriter Guy and that took me from eighty nine through to about ninety five six. And then I sort of had enough. I. I was I mean the industry had changed You know the whole thing of being sort of in an arena rock band. It's kind of converted to an MTV banned through the eighties that was dying off and there was the rise of Nirvana and soundgarden and so radio had gone in a different direction and I try and thing just seemed like it was over for me you know so I left made those three records in there and I got to the point where I went. Okay. This doesn't really seem to be working for me either and it's not really why I left triumph. In the first place I just want to indulge myself creatively artistically and I don't care if I make money or not This is not a question of chasing career. This is a question of sort of. Chasing what art in music and the music is is pulling me towards calling me. You know. So I, one was a classical guitar instrumental record next one in very short succession was a blues rock and kind of a thing because really that was like where I cut my teeth when I was first learning electric guitar was the whole Eric Clapton Jimmy Page Jeff Beck thing these guys out of the yardbirds then back into the Chicago Blues and down the Delta all of the you know the the same path that those guys went soon as you discover them, you go back down the path that they did too. So you know And then the next record was sort of top jazz because that was the next thing that happened in my life I went to college for one semester in Jazz Music Program but at the time, I was heavily deeply into everything from west, Montgomery to Charlie bird to Joe Pass and so Yeah you know swinging and that comes on playing blues and so those were the first three records I made real quick

Deeper Digs in Rock: BONES UK
"Called bones. Uk This was one of those Love at first sight type of things for me one note and I was hooked. Okay I literally was in love. So who are these immensely proper quiet and suitably charming young ladies from the British Isles? Yeah there anything but that bones. Uk is a two piece from Camden town. A suburb of London and consists of an in-your-face Rosie bones. On Lead Vox and Rhythm Guitar and the very impressive and chill Carmen Vandenberg on Lead Guitar. They work very closely with producer. Filipo Giamatti to create a fresh rock. Sound on record but at the same time these two fine sirens can do it live. I formed in two thousand fourteen when Rosie Mett Carmen and instantly had a connection. They put some stuff together and literally believe it or not had Jeff Beck show up at their second GIG. Whereafter seeing them. Ask them to help write his two thousand sixteen album loudhailer and then invited them on the American tour. I'm just not sure you can possibly find a better endorsement than that Very very tail. Except when you realize separately Rosen Carmen had been working Added for years before all this came to pass just goes to show you. You just gotTa find that Special Chemistry but if that is not enough. They were nominated for best rock performance at this year's grammy though they lost to Gary Clark junior so I got to speak to both of them while on tour opening for corn and I gotta say they are both charming intelligent sexy and fun as their tunes. I love it when the act matches the music and data is what you get with bones. Uk. They just released an unplugged. Ep with some of the songs you'll find on their twenty nineteen upon US album. But what I dig about that is if you need more than Jeff Beck telling you this showing they do have some impressive musical chops and therefore Given a chance these these ladies should go really far well if rock and roll still matters that is I. I know it does to you and I can. They make a big dent in the universe. We shall see in the meantime. Let's get to know them a little and hopefully you will feel the same way about them that I do. Oh One last thing about these two from Camden town. There's a whole mythology being created here. They have a very personal authentic thing. They take their ideas and not just from songs but all that would go along with it. the imagery the videos Their interaction with fans Just how they comport themselves Very real but at the same time it it is it is

We're going to take take a look at two icons of the Guitar Business Gibson Guitar and fender recently our sister show business wars to deep dive into their decades long rivalry and today we're going to catch you up on where the two are now. Gibson guitars been on a rocky road to say the least the company was founded in nineteen o two and named after Kalamazoo Michigan Inventor Orville Gibson over the decades it became known for its high quality instruments particularly guitars played by Les Paul Elvis Presley Jimmy Page and bb be king among many others less Paul of course had a guitar named after him but in recent decades Gibson Star began fading in the nineteen eighties instrument sales slowed as kids chose synthesizers and video games over guitar strings over time that trend continued by the early two thousands more and more musicians composing and making music digitally under CEO Henry Jessica Gibson attempted a risky strategy to try to reduce Gibson's reliance on selling mainstream mainstream guitars. He wanted Gibson to become what he called a music lifestyle company with that as its New Strategy Jessica wits lead Gibson into buying buying an assortment of consumer electronics businesses making head bones turntables in speakers but what about guitars will according to the Nashville Tennessee and between twenty ten in two thousand fifteen the company's sales grew from three hundred million dollars to over two billion dollars but the business model was hollow just go lewitt's had also tried to reinvent his electric guitar business pioneering several attention-getting innovation some of which like a rocket shaped guitar and electronic robot tuning. Learning machines were mostly rejected by guitar purists. Many Gibson loyalists complained that quality dropped prices rose in by two thousand fifteen profit margin's dropped to a meager four percent meanwhile Gibson's most famous rival thunder was doing quite well founded by a Radio Repairman in an instrument lover named Leo Fender Back in Nineteen forty-six vendor is famous for its stratocaster and telecaster guitars. The company also invented an electric bass. Call the P. Base the precision bass which became a foundation for rock and roll like Gibson fenders instruments appeared in the hands of world famous artists from country to our beat Iraq in the nineteen eighties eighties and nineties fender custom crafted guitars for Jimmy Page Eric Clapton Jeff Beck Merle Haggard Stevie Ray Vaughan and the list goes on while Jessica Woodson his team were pursuing doing an aggressive strategy that took the company away from its core business fender to was expanding but in an arguably healthier less flashy fashion the company added Digital Products Guitar Students along with upgraded amplifiers and other basics by early twenty eighteen gibson was in debt to the tune one of half a billion dollars and filed for chapter eleven bankruptcy protection some wondered whether this would be Gibson Swansong or if the one hundred sixteen year old company could be saved last October Gibson name new leadership and the company emerged from bankruptcy now. It's getting back to basics. No more rockets shaped guitars electronic robot tuners crazy futuristic takes on its mainstay. Les Paul Guitar Today. Gibson offers two basic lines of its classic classic guitars modern and traditional many players feel like qualities returning and that the guitars while still expensive or no longer wildly overpriced and under engineered appeared. The company is slowly getting. It's Mojo back. Fender is at the top of its game but keeping an eye on Kitson. Hey Vendor knows its biggest. Competitor isn't down for the count to make sure it would compete with Gibson. Fender has sharpened up its budget minded imports made in Mexico and China. Those instruments were designed to undercut Gibson price in rival. I Will Gibson's affordable brand episode on at the same time fenders producing high quality more expensive guitars right here in the United States of America. It's not easy for icon at companies to maintain their relevance for more than a century but with help from their fans that's just what both Gibson and fender have managed to do at least at least for now for more on the twists and turns of one of America's great musical rivalries check out our series Gibson guitars versus fender our sister show mm-hmm business works from wondering this business wars daily at this week's episodes were written edited and produced by Elaine Appleton edited and produced by Emma Cortlandt are executive producers Marshal Louis created by for Non Lopez or whatever I'm David Brown and we'll see you next week.

"And they'd sit there, and I'd go with this probably doesn't need to talk anybody because this is taking them out of his head for an hour. And he's not even that good at it. But it was of great solace to him. I used to go into my room, and tease my hair up like Jimi Hendrix. And and before I could play a note. I knew how to look like I could play a note. Now when you see old Hendrix, you might as well be looking at Michael Rennie getting off the spaceship in day. They are stood still. That's what how sweet generous. He was what a rare Avis. It's just an amazing group. And I I've talked to a couple people went and saw him in London. Peter noone lives near me from Herman servants. He said. Yeah. Lovely cat. He said Denison telling you were sitting there, and it was like, he's the only other thing. I can explain some Beatles. When they came back from Hamburg. We all went to see him in a town square somewhere. We looked at each other. So we're fucked. It's over they just one he's Hendrix was leg a the'real visitor from beyond entrance. Was he wasn't black. He wasn't white. I saw him twice with no writing and Mitch Mitchell. Oh, Canada, he landed from some other, you know, now galaxy and he just he was so phenomenal that you just you just sat there and didn't know what to make of it except to say, okay. You know, the the the bars been raised its and and we not only can't we reach the bar. We can't even see it. Yeah. I think he got into Clapton said even he got into his kitchen alone. Well, from what I understand Clapton went to see him. But I think even before that. That he got granted permission to go on stage in jam with him. I think through chess Chandler who was his manager at the time who was originally bass player in in the animals, and he showed up and plugged in his guitar cream gig and just decimated. The this whole clap do has God thing. So quite frankly, Clapton was the guy who did that everybody else acceptive gas. You know, they were young upstarts who come into time like in gunsmoke, I wanna take share page. Didn't give a fuck. Jeff beck. Didn't give a fuck. But most people were intimidated by Clapton Hendrix Hendrix was. I again, it was unearthly I and not not too too long between that I saw zeppelin, you know, between their first and second album, and that was just. There's really call. Yeah. Just something that was a game changer. Just life changing because I found myself when we left my friend, and I said, let's not even talk about this. You know, and I knew it was certainly something that I could aspire to but it's great to to set your goals at high. But also to realize you can't reach that. So then that's rarefied air. That's your that's kiss for a lot of people. So what what a he thing to say that. And I don't know in the annals, certainly you're up there. Baby must feel good. And I think bottom when he would flip the sticks and start per plunking. He could give tinnitus even if he had earplugs in because that he was amazing. And I spent a good deal time now with Jimmy page, which alone to me is is worth worth, you know, all the time that I put in because here here, I was a very impression impression kid with watching them on stage and for me to be on stage and have Jimmy and the audience now. Glad to t- is is is is lovely. But he actually told me interestingly that Bonham it come up with the the drums solar with his hands by seeing Lee Michaels whose long gone Lee Michaels was a keyboard player who had a drummer deemed frosty and frosty used to do a solo with his hands. And that's kind of where we're bottom got the the idea for everybody sparks everybody else. Let's let me ask you a technical question. This is just naive for my part. But you you're an accident. So Jimmy when he goes to the what is the benefit of having a Qatar with one is set like a Base Sur..

"And like I remember going up to him and ask him the same thing. Like, hey, do you mind playing my music with me or and he agreed? You know, which was really nice of him because he'd never heard me play before and him and a guy named Nate Smith played drums with me, and people know you at this point, I guess, they know me, but they like I'm just fresh on the scene like some some people were really like, you know, there were other musicians really hot on me. They didn't want him he play or you know, there's this twelve year old play the electric bass and in a jazz club was supposed to be upright bass. And you know, what I mean like some people gave me a hot. Time. But there were people like Robert glass Brin Naismith, and you know, and the like that were really really nice and like play my music with me and with very encouraging. So that that's nice. And then I decided I wanted to go back to LA. Because I had then discovered you know, what like that's the place where like the industry is where like all the gigs are like the real gigs. Now like the playing in clubs for one hundred bucks a gig. Like, I wanted to do some like some other kinds of gigs. And so I went back to LA Edison point. I'm like, I really should coal Vinny. Now that I'm now that I'm back. Yeah. And and I did I said, hey, I'm back in in LA. I I have this new record. And who's the one you did with Wayne Krantz or the one you deal with Wayne crap? You, and I and I had this thing with the Allman brothers, and is is it cool. Like could I maybe play you this stuff, and he's a cool. So we like met like at a Starbucks or something. And I played in the music, and he's like, wow, he was very impressive. Let's let's get together and play. So so I I met up with him. And and we we had a jam. I don't for maybe forty five minutes to space and drum just bass drums. I guess he wanted to see if I could hang up. And he was you know, very, supportive, and maybe like a few weeks later. I get this coal from Vinnie saying that Jeff Beck was looking for a bass player for this one gig and Pino couldn't make it. It was for Eric Clapton's crossroads festival for the big of the benefit vessel for the drug rehab. Yep. Yeah. All the tar players go, right? Yeah.

And and I got the coal that like they went to audition me England. Jeff does. Yeah. Jeff beck. Yeah. So I like quickly learn all of his stuff 'cause I had I wasn't really familiar with his music. So I learned like whole vista. I like looked through the settlers. And so what he was playing Lund, maybe like twenty five. Yes. And. This is one of the funniest stories of my career. So I'm really hungry as we're about to get on the plane. It's me and Vinnie might going to to play with Jeff Beck in London. Yeah. Yeah. Because I think he may have had some other gigs up his sleeve, but who Beck. Yeah. Yeah. But he didn't mention them, just the crossroads. So. I'm saying, I'm really hungry.

"Well as I found myself, really not affected by it. Being as close as I can talking to my. Almost ninety three year old dead. Yeah. Snowblower weeks away. Yeah. And he was telling me that it was sixty seven years ago Saint Patrick's Day. Yeah. That he gave my mom, you know, her engage her engagement ring. Oh, that's when they became engaged. All right. And and the fact is that's because they were both Irish. So having a ton. I I would like to say this. And I believe I can say this with confidence even though I have not taken a DNA test. Yeah. I believe I am more than one one thousand Irish. Oh, good. And so I I believe that I can identify with the Irish and proclaim Irish heritage. Yeah. My sister finished a lot of stuff this weekend. And she finished it on Saturday and started texting everyone. Hey, look, we can celebrate tomorrow. Because it and she goes, okay. Here's the lineage. It all began in Ireland went to Scotland went to England went to the US on both sides. And I'm like, yeah. Okay. That makes sense. I was not in the least bit offended. I was offended that I had to read nother story about Beto. That was the only thing I was offended by the fact that it wasn't on an issue. Yeah. I don't know. That by the way, was that to easy for them to have done that don't you don't you want them to be a little more creative? Yeah. Yeah. But if I was going to be offended. I wouldn't be offended. What was it the sci-fi channel? I believe that had a leprechaun marathon this weekend. They did. Yeah. Okay. All right. Yeah. Oh, come on. Wait a minute. Is that Seifi? Well, yeah. Because the leprechaun is unreal. I know. Real sea did a ship or something we Irish we Irish have been so put upon wait a minute. How do you know where there are some people that believe that a leprechaun could be real? Well, how do you know? It's not. You know, the whole big thing. Well, we we would have some some evidence by now, but you haven't found any evidence. So that's if you don't see it if you don't find it. That's also proof. You're right. Yeah. I've I've I've forgotten how we justify things could be real low feet. Exactly. Because. The the little guy is magical, right? Well, not on. Well, he's magical on on baking snap his fingers, then be invisible. Right. A leprechaun. I mean think about this. Think about what we Irish have had to put up with. Yeah. The a continuation a movie than a sequel after sequel after sequel after sequel of of this make believe Irish character who happens to be a murderer who is a murderous lustful, greedy. Life entity. Yeah. Right. That completely destroys Irish heritage. But we make up for it with the lucky charms guy. Magically delicious. You know, he could have been the hero in that movie. You have a good leprechaun battling the bad leprechaun. The only reason that leprechaun gets a pass though with us Irish is because it was Jennifer Aniston's, I flick. Otherwise, we'd be crying racism, you know, she's probably been trying to buy the rights to that movie for a long time to make it disappear. Yeah. Well, you know, if you just go before you get to the murderous part or aside from that movie franchise leprechaun with the leprechaun conservative or not while we know he's a capitalist. Or is he? Just because you want money does that make your capitalist? Well, he does wanna share it with anybody? He doesn't want to share it. And he also doesn't want to earn it. Because remember it's Megan. Right. It's not our goal. But that also makes them just like every CEO according to the liberals. He gets all the money and everybody else gets nothing. Can you believe never watched a full movie of the leprechaun through? I've never watched it from beginning to end. I can't believe I really I really should do it sometime. I don't think I've seen anything besides a trailer or a clip. Related to. I might have watched five minutes of it. And then burst out laughing and then moved onto something else. Yeah. Yeah. Right. Right. Well, no, no. I mean, I I didn't watch it because I turned it on for two or three minutes. I was Sola fended. And so hurt that I didn't turn. So you're telling me Sifi is still on. Yeah. The cable channels still as as as long as there's a another shark NATO to be made. What did they make like a dozen? I think they've made as been five clearly. Oh, no. I think it's more than five. That's really I think so more than leprechaun's. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. About leprechaun NATO. About leprechauns writing the sharks leopard. You know, there's people in Hollywood right now based on that whole shark NATO thing that are writing the stupidest thing, you could possibly imagine. While they get paid for it. Yes. And a studio executive says, yes, okay? Go ahead and make that movie. I mean, they made the avengers. So. Okay. Now, I'm going to get Email. Fine. I look forward to your Email. Whatever I did turn the leprechaun on for a little bit. But then I had over the weekend. I got pre Showtime. Oh, yeah. So I go through the whole menu. Yeah. There's not much the only thing I've actually there was. I mean, the only I only I only DVR one thing and only watch the first ten minutes of it. And it was the the documentary on Jeff Beck's life. Okay. So and I got through a couple of moments of it when he was Jeff Beck. I don't know. He rebuilt old cars. I didn't know that got this huge. That's where it starts out. You see this guy welding among who's at looking ons. Jeff back, right. But he told and this just pure greatness because you sit there, and I love my life, and I would not want to have another life. But for a moment, it would have been cool to Ben Jeff back when he was in grammar when he was in high school and just this weird kid like to play guitar and his sister came home one days. He tells the story sister comes home one day and says, hey, here's an address of a guy, you know, who also has similar interests. You might want to give a call or hang out with them or golden was house, whatever. So we come with me so him and his sister go over to this guy's house and who opens the door Jimmy page. And so what they used to do as as to get this. Now, they used to sit there and they used to listen to Ricky Nelson albums, and what's the guitarist from? I can think of the guitars famous stars from Ricky Nelson. Oh, they love the terrorist of Ricky Nelson. Okay. You imagine Jimmy page and Jeff Beck sitting there. Listening to Ricky Nelson albums. That was cool saying man, I would love to do that one day. Yes. And then at the end of the conversation now, I can't and says, I gotta do my homework. So so that's that. That's why I ended up not watching. I turned like five minutes of the leprechaun and went, okay. Time to move to something. James Burton James Burton, yet guitars stamps, Burt. Yes, thank you so much. Yeah. With Elvis to. Yeah. Great cars. Really great guitar. So they were you know, they'd sit there and just go. Let's and they they played part actually played, you know, part of what they used to listen to his guitar, and I'm like, oh, it's really good. Yeah. So, but you wouldn't think you just say Ricky Nelson. You're like what? Jeff Beck page, Ricky Nelson. Oh, it's like the document documentary. What's it called? It's going to get loud. It's about to get loud. So you have the edge. Jack, Jack, black Jack white, and and you have Jimmy page Jimmy page is. Demonstrating, you know, the songs that he wrote like Kashmir and all these others and the other two are sitting there, and I'm going. What do you do if you're the edge? And Jimmy page has just showed the world is brilliant. And and the progression of of this song and that song. You're going to stand up and go. Yeah. For every song. We did. I just went thin. Are you you to fans upset, but I've always said the same thing. Do something a little different. I think it's an overrated guitars. Yeah. Sorry. He's he's found a niche of getting a hawk he's found hooks. But even the hooks are simple. Well it worked. They sold trillion. Save albums did. So, you know, I I would say there's probably other reasons they sold those albums, but it worked it was the signature sound, but but in terms of technique. Yes, you're you're just you're sitting there, and you're going one is light years from the other. See what I wonder as you know, if the edge got up there, and then all of a sudden, he demonstrated all this other stuff takes never used on albums, and they can do use that. But the best part is we said right into a guitars from Dublin. There you go see right back around even though they moved away from airland because the tax. Oh, there's that. We're right back to politics. And we move right? All of the circles. Right. So then I didn't even have a drink. On Saint Patrick's Day or the day before. Say with me. Yeah. I did post a thing of Irish yoga where somebody says is that politically insensitive you've seen seen that the Irish yoga. What's this bottle off bottles all over the place and people dressed in green and all sorts of oh, they're laying down poses there because they're laying down and look yoga stretch. Yeah. Yeah. So there you go. So I guess I I hope it doesn't happen where the Irish I hope I hope better O'Rourke does not hold by the way to see somebody commented. It was I think it was the hill dot com that said that had the headline over work in Irish Saint Patrick's Day parade and somebody puts where's the battle? Right. It's like oh. Well, but okay. So there's the other side of it. You know, the media hasn't been the left media has not been very kind to him. No. I mean, unless he comes out with some kind of big agenda, and the whole thing and stays on that point. I don't see for instance, the the editorial board at Washington Post changing their mind about him. I mean, the the guy has zero ideas, what's he promoting? What did he promote last week when he announced? That we need to do something about climate change. And we only have twelve years. I heard him say that we have twelve years to reverse it. All yes. Yes. So he's he he he's, but you're just copying Cossio Cortez. But that's a cost of Cortez light. No, it was because he was talking about the deal. Yeah. Well. It was fun while it lasted.

"Let's terrorist. Jeff Beck famous for his work with the Yardbirds. This is an innovative guy. There's a there's a new documentary out on Showtime about it. Exactly. A Jeff Beck. Still on the run tells the story of Jeff Beck. I'm somebody. I'm a musician and have been around a while. So I'm conversant with Jeff Beck, but some younger people might not know him. This is a guy who has constantly inconsistently innovated the use of the guitar. I we heard him with the Yardbirds. Now, he replaced Eric Clapton in the birds and played with them with Jimmy page. It would go on to be the Atari and Led Zeppelin then he formed a group with a Rod Stewart and with Ronnie wood who would go on to become the Taurus and the Rolling Stones. So he was there as all of these sort of classics seminal rock bands were happening and all of them considered him to be like the ultimate guitar player. In some ways, he was kind of like the miles Davis of rock guitar. He even collaborated with Stevie Wonder, and they wrote superstition together a lot of people don't know that. So this documentary does a great job of tying all that together and talking to people like Jimmy page, and Eric Clapton? It's a great reminder of this great player that a lot of people don't know about who really helped form the shape of how rock guitar works. Now with all the seminal stuff that he did in the sixty seventies eighties and nineties and beyond. Okay. Here's a name that people will recognize the film Whitney came out over the summer. You can get it on itunes traces the career, and you know, the sad life struggles of the great Whitney Houston. I know you like this one. But there's there's a lot of retrospectives about Whitney Houston. What's so good about this one? Yeah. That's that's true Showtime even had a great documentary about Whitney last year. Call Whitney can I be me? But a lot of things that these other retrospectives kind kinda hinted at the side that she fought with her mother this idea that she didn't get along with her father this idea that she did a lot of drugs when she was younger and how all of these. Sort of things that she went through came out in the substance abuse struggles that she had and the dysfunction that she had when she was an adult. They really nail a lot of this down. They they got people to talk on the record about the allegation that her father and her mother each had separate affairs that kind of ruined their marriage and fractured the family, but they had to pretend like they were a family because they were also heavily involved in gospel music, and they were trying to develop Whitney's career. And so they would appear in public like they were this perfect African American family, but behind the scenes there was a lot of turmoil. Going on the film does a great job of boring into the subjects that we who are fans of when Houston may have heard here and there, but really kind of fleshing them out. I was surprised to learn that Whitney Houston struggled with self-doubt. I think a lot of people were, but it's not unusual to find somebody who super successful to also be. Kind of super insecure, and she was one of those people. Yeah. Well, Eric you've given me no choice. I have to play this. Great to go. I really love that sorta NPR D critic Eric, thanks for your time. Cruciate was applied. It is amazing to me someone who could sing like that would question. Her own talent.

"They were noticed the original guitar band. They started with Eric Clapton. Eric clapton? Jeff Beck with their Jeff was air. He lost. And he went on his own a certain unnamed person became the league Taurus for Led Zeppelin. Not bad. So where we are with that. We've got anyway, this is W C VM talk radio and our number is four one zero nine two two six six eighty don't go to Tony at going one more. I always have my gripe of the week last time, it was when everybody says, frankly, and honestly, which means everybody's lines everybody, you always hear him go. Frankly, this honestly that who's telling the truth. Now, the new thing it's not new I've been seeing it instead of saying wildly go Wilst W. I L S T or amongst instead of a month. Everybody thinks her Harry Potter. I've never seen like it. It's like the now, I don't know what's going on with the with the English language here. But it's will. And how about this one? When I say, thank you to someone who's provided me a service. They always say, no problem. Why can't they just say? Thank you. They can say, you're welcome. If I if they do something for me, they always say, no problem. Well, no problems fi. But how about job lesser property switz-? No problem. They will wasn't a problem for me there. You just throw a tip out of this. You're welcome. You're welcome. But at the same time, I just let's go to our Tony savings. Save us from ourselves. Okay. Tony. How are you? Good evening, gentlemen. Good evening. Two comments. And I don't know if they're quick or not. But I when we're talking about morality, we have to remember that the alternative for president would have been Hillary Clinton who during this time of the metoo movement when we're supposed to believe women who say they've been sexually abused or raped or intimidated or harassed that we need to take them at their word. And we're we're there to back up women who do that Hillary Clinton who would have been president was the woman not her staff, but her from her lips created a term Bimbo eruption about the women to scores of women who accused her husband of sexual harassment in one case, rape and sexual abuse. Who her husband while a sitting president of the United States lost his law license because he lied to a federal judge while he was being sued for sexual harassment. We need to remember these things when we talk about morality of the current president. Okay about who who the other president would have. Been Tony one quick question. What would it could it should when when do we stop talking about Hillary how many elections have to go by before we stop talking about Hillary? Well, they're going on a world stadium tour. So she keeps throwing herself out there. Her and Bill keeps throwing themselves out there. So I guess when they stopped talking about themselves will stop talking about themselves. I guess you've heard they're going to TicketMaster now, they want this thing to be so big they wanted to be on TicketMaster. So I suppose they're the ones that are perpetrating this not me. Tony, tony. I'm with you. And everybody goes out and tries to make a lot of money and said all the right wing commentators. If she wants to do it fine. But the issue is she ain't the president. She wasn't the president. And hasn't been the president. There's no comparison. There's no comparison morality, I'm sorry. She's not the president. Doesn't matter. No is my question L is would you be having the same discussion. You're not the president. But you know. Would pro quo. Would you be having the same discussion about her morality and what she did? And how she denigrated and she she herself going to term Bimbo eruption against women who accused a man of sexual harassment. Would you be having the same discussion about her morality woulda coulda? I'll tell you who would every right wing radio station would because they do it already. Your answer is in your non-answer. You know, it is at my answering. Shoot. Second. Can I bring up something else too? But the answer is you want to change the facts that haven't happened. But please bring up your second point. All this stuff happened Hillary Clinton all this stuff happened. She's not just president. Well, you don't have to answer the question if you would give her a hard time. So of course, we would we do anyhow, but she's not the president. And she's not the one leading the world. So that people go and say, hey, look, what Hillary's doing they go look with Donald Trump is doing, and that's where it goes. But let's go to your second point, the great diversion. But. Version hypotheticals version. We appreciate your call. Not one. Yeah. We appreciate your call. But we just think you're it's the woulda coulda shoulda is. If you would say the same thing about her, but you won't answer that of course, we would. I don't care if there's of course, we would now what? Now, go ahead, go go. I'm glad to hear that you that you're that your balanced that the second thing is here. We have a Saudi citizen who was writing things about the Saudi government who was killed by a Saudi leader in a Saudi compound. Okay. And the current sitting president initially. Immediately after investigation and immediately sends our secretary of state to at least two countries to investigate this now when Benghazi happened here, we go. The American ambassador. And three America's soldiers were killed and the sitting President Obama, Barack Obama did not send Hillary Clinton anywhere. In fact, she was silent for a week. She say anything and the only thing they did. When the American ambassador was killed and three American servicemen were killed day sent an operative onto Sunday morning. Talk shows to say, it was a misunderstanding about a video just look at the difference in action and anybody who would even whisper one word in defense of the reprehensible way, they handle that should be embarrassed. Why look look look with Trump student look with Trump is doing an Afghanistan all the people were losing their. I don't see you upset about that. But you should be upset about. They just one of the guys just we almost lost the head of our armed forces. There about why not Benghazi why not Afghanistan, what's the difference? Both your hypotheticals deal. With Scituate one is the situation in the passive one hypothetic. That has not happened. We're talking about what's going on right now. And instead of talking about what's going on right now, you're immediately have to get some kind of comparison. A Saudi citizen was killed by a Saudi leader on Saudi property on Saudi property and the Americans sent the secretary of state. Tell them have a lie. What are you talking about? It's all a setup giving him some how about how about some credit. You don't get any credit on this set up here. And look we're going to have to stay friends with the Saudis, but they should have stood up. And they didn't stand up just like cavenaugh should have stood up and he didn't stand up. And then.

"Interesting story, and they they talk about it. It's in the book the Jimmy page. Would they talk about that particular period? How Jeff Beck kinda split on. And then was sort of voted out of the band, and that was hard problems yet some tonsillitis, chronic constantly. Oh, it was a lie. That's funny is because they actually he mentioned that it was wink, wink, tonsillitis, but it wasn't tonsilitis. He was you know, he was he was being a bit of a prima, Donna. And and and it was Jeff it was really Jimmy page. That got Jeff Beck. The gig in the Yardbirds. They wanted Jimmy page. You wouldn't do it? And they brought in Jeff Beck. And then at the time they they came back to offer him another slot and they offered him bass player. Jeff Beck was the lead guitar player and Jimmy page played bass for the birds. Not very well. But then when Jeff Beck split Jimmy page right away took over as lead guitarist. And then Jeff back comes back, and they do perform together a few more times together, and they sort of make up from that point. So that's in the book, so interesting that you have that little connection for that Santa Monica story. Well, that's the connection actually was I got a front row seat, and when he played happenings ten years time ago one of my very favorites. Right. Underrated. Art Brooklyn, he came on the down stroke and the bottom e string curled up around the guitar, and he tore it off. And it was in a big looping reached out. I was like four feet away from any handed it to me. Girl, either side of me, and I hit the loop around my hand, and they were sawing on this. And I'm not sure diabolical about this certainly hurt like the devil. Guitar string for a number of years. I'd I'd always bring it out. The conversation suspect, rather, let's cruise. This is Jimmy pages. And I got so tired of people going. Yeah. Right. That is such a cool story. Well, it's very interesting. And actually, there's there's even more about that than that. You'll want to know because you're hitting on a very pivotal time. So the fact that you have that I, you know, ro- connection as it were. I think you'll Yardbirds at three three one of the great gets three grape your so the twentieth century, Eric Clapton, of course, like commercial direction yard were headed. So Jeff Beck. Right. Their most commercials szeswith, Jeff, of course, as you mentioned Jimmy page. I'll tell you this in a rapid up here in thanks for your your thoughts on that Allen. Was that actually the song you mentioned that ten years happening happening ten years, whatever that's like, they they talk about how much they hate that song. Birt's hated. That's. I think funny, but. It was forced on them by their manager. And they played it. And they it it didn't work. Well, thank you. Let me go to wildcard line. Elizabeth is in LA on coast to coast AM, Elizabeth. Hi, how are you? Good. Got a minute here before the bottom of the hour. Just two quick questions one. I'm not sure if you've read the whole book, but is there anything in there about the casual Jimmy page from Crowley and the second the second question is is there any truth to the rumor Jimmy page may be the son of a Kennedy or Schweinfurt? No. Although that's interesting. You mentioned that because of his moon face. He does look like a he does look like Ted Kennedy. There's like there is a kind of that quality to him. Yeah. They talk about a lot about his Rubik. Good looks. And and yeah, no. I don't think there's any connection role. They they do go into a bit of the genealogy of all of the people in in Led Zeppelin, and where they lived and that Alastair Croly mansion. And then later on the castle with the mode and everything was pretty cool. I mean, I I walk away liking Jimmy page a lot more than I thought I would. I don't feel I still know him. But I I at least I think I understand what when I do know about him better. Open lines on anything you want. We still got time looking forward to it. So we'll roll the numbers coming up next. We'll take it to the end of the show, and we'll see where you're going to take us next on coast to coast AM. This is Ian punnet..

"Right. So listen, you just it's so interesting. Here's one of the stories. I told you the very beginning. I wrote down like everything I thought I knew about Jimmy page and one of the stories I had always heard was that Paul McCartney was credited with coming up with the name Led Zeppelin that it was at a party. And then he explained what he was going to do with the Yardbirds, and that he was going to reform the band, the Yardbirds, and and then it's Paul McCartney who's credited with saying, well that will go over like a Led Zeppelin, but that wasn't you didn't that didn't even rate the book, there, isn't even you don't even mention it to not to say, it's not true. Missile. You heard you. Sorry. I lost you a little bit. You always heard. It was John Entwistle from the who. Yeah. Now, I hear you better. Thank you so much somebody came up to speak and sorry. Yes. Essentially in. This summer. I think it's may or June nineteen sixty six there is the first endeavor. I think this is kind of like unconscious. I it's I didn't ever really to get together as a supergroup. And it's around it's around Jeff Beck who was who was Jimmy L friends. I mean, they kind of grown up as teenagers. They grown up together. They they live near each other. They would they would come over to Jimmy's house in Epsom in Surrey parents house, and and they play guitar together. And it's. Jeff Beck records. His version of Ravana bolero and on. It is Keith mood is on drums. Nicky Hopkins is on panic. And it was the who were caught a slightly falling apart at the time. And it wasn't endeavor to actually perhaps get something going with all these musicians. And John was still a said this, okay? I feel like a Led Zeppelin. I've never heard for McCartney. You've never heard that. No, I've never heard that from interesting 'cause I I'd always. That it was it was came up. Cleverly would let Led Zeppelin at that point with spell L E A D, but then feed Agron pointed out that he was concerned that audiences might think it was the lead zeppelin, so we'll see as that becomes Led Zeppelin this which is absurd. It's name ready by something like the great tip said is right here. Yeah. That's go in like. Yeah. He's like, it's kind of wonderful people miss the Huber bath it. Well, if I if I remember from the book, actually, their manager Peter Grant was more concerned that American audiences would think it was lead zeppelin, and so it was specifically thrown out on that basis. The we had he had this LED or we wouldn't pronounce it. Right. Which is probably true. So I'm not arguing but not arguing with. But that is so so this is just been, you know, it's a great read and yet at the same time. It just touch on some stuff. I I was surprised there's a couple of early mentions about like island records didn't really wanna sign Led Zeppelin. They were they had heard a lot of stories about how Jimmy page treated women, and they took kind of a high minded attitude, but I think that's in in hindsight, actually true. They did make the first off Chris Blackwell did make the first off. And he ends on officers at the time. We're in the same building in London's Oxford Street as as as as grownups. And mickie most, of course, legendary English producer at full the South Africa and is full of rockstar himself popstar, South Africa. Setting you each other. I mean, he like Chris were like. That's I he made an offer. I think he's twenty five thousand dollars and Peter girl been used after leverage when he went to New York, but that was the Jerry Wexler, for example, as you point out the book records as you point out the book that was only for the international rights as opposed to the American rights, and I thought well just to make the point. It seemed like the word was out a little bit on some of the debauchery of of Led Zeppelin, and what they had become famous for even before they were famous for being Led Zeppelin, and and I don't want it like explain the mud shark story. But and so I just you know, it's probably too harsh for people even at this hour, but it's in the book and people can can hear some of the stuff that they did the read backstage the page wasn't involved in which I which I was getting it was that's the interesting part. Is that story this very thing? The story about a woman in a mud shark. It ends up not even involving Jimmy page. And that's not always heard was involved that he was centrally involved in the end if he was even there. That's debatable. Right. So. Yeah. Actually the road crew really and perhaps JIMBO right? So what is I mean? Then as we get down to cases aside from how people talk about him in retrospect aside from you know, things that were associated with him that he didn't do like the big fight in July of seventy seven or the mud shark incident. I mean, what what was the kind of what are the real stories about Jimmy page that that people sort of associated with women almost sacrificing themselves, you know, Led Zeppelin or they had some sort of ability. You know, just control almost a an other worldly control over women. What are some of the real stories? Well, I think it's I think what people don't fully appreciate is that you know, when a band comes off stage they up. Buzzing with adrenaline. I mean, that's why cost you know, all night parties go on. That's why you know, people have made me, for example, I've read I've read stomach his biography stomach couldn't get asleep about nine in the morning because the the energy that he put out. And the Drennan is just running through it. So what has to barrel this in mind? When considering any rock act. Yeah. And and and the behavior. Plus, the fact that it just seemed very much of its time. That's kind of you know. Beep young women were rather than with movie stars ready. They're absolutely it with the notion of Rockstars. And. I think that's particularly the case in Los Angeles example, whether the legendary kind of sunset strip group, they're calm underage would who would be, you know, they they would they stipulate around rubbed knees. English disc. Rodney bingo. Hi, MS English disco as it was called, which largely played only sort of English English records. Sometimes the best thing, but David Bowie who suggested wrong. That he stopped his his club. And out of that came. They were. Legendary. Groupies like sabre stuff, for example. And they were just kind of. But it stood extent. They were just like friends of of these Rockstars. I mean. Mick negative, Mick Jagger, enrolled, shoe it. He's got rain highly in these stories. It does seem to be very much of a certain time might nowadays. People might not really approve of what went on. But I you know, I can remember in England, for example, you know, there's one rock at rock group. I I knew it was like, you know, four o'clock five o'clock in the off me they'd be caught. Please stick deals were getting out of school. And they must be dropping over is trying to think. Now a days. Would be seen for all the different light in the same way that the ship drug consumption. Taught. This was a sort of new era new people hadn't caught have done drugs in in in large amounts. And at some point you asked me, but no-one said you could only do shouldn't ready to a loss. People didn't note really this is naive. But it doesn't seem to realize if you just didn't love of drugs, you might die. I think there's a rather naive time. Let's put it that way. Right. Right. And I think this is great. We're talking about sorry. But we're talking about people like, you know, I'm thinking, for example, you know, the Chicago plastic cost is. Try extraordinary really who would take most of you know, of of of Rockstars appendages profile surprise motza there. And I think it's very strange. And this is something that they felt kind of entitled to as Rockstars. But and then there was a as you mentioned too. There's a lot of drugs involved. How how long was it before Jimmy page Robert plant, John Paul Jones, John Bonham, how long well, we know about John Bonham? So let's not say him. But how long was it before the other three guys began to scale it back it when it came to drugs and alcohol. I think jump for jet was ever really very very into in into drugs. And I think rubber punt also wasn't civics excessively seven. I think after the death of his son he allegedly kind of stopped doing everything if offer me. Drinking, and I think that that the Jimmy story is trying to fuel to help his creativity. Hedonism? I mean, he was often. It's in the book, actually, you know, Nick Kenzi. Legendary english. Journalists music journalist asked him about some asked about Austin heroin consumption. Did he regret it, and he should know? Because I I think this this relates to physical safety actually to the recording eat, that's what got me through the work. That's what that's what got me through it. And I think he knew what the consequences would be. It's a bit strange in a way because Alastair Crowly who was caught. He you know, he he certainly seemed to revere Trone himself and did life is a heroin addict. And I think that Jimmy had these wilderness years when he was coming off it, and he disappeared from public view way or create he disappeared creatively for parents. I think after Led Zeppelin definitely with the biggest group in the world in the nineteen seventies. The ends. At the end of the decade. You can imagine what the comedown must've been even without the drugs, where am I what am I doing? Now, he hit to rediscover himself. It was his project. You know, don't wasn't just like a business hijack. It was an obstacle Led Zeppelin. We're not statement. It was his piece of off. It must have been very difficult coming down from that for any you know, you can see this with so many other musicians as I said I've read Joe service, which he had his wilderness years after the crash so did Jimmy page. After legit is definitely the wilderness chest, which car was slightly. Come. You know, when when there was the pagent club reunion in the mid nineties, and and I think he, you know, he really redeemed himself creatively during that period. Yeah. It was nice to see in a again, we're talking about the definitive biography of Jimmy page, which really addresses a lot of questions. But that doesn't mean you won't have yours coming up in just a few minutes. We'll give the number for you to jump in. But you talk about the later reunions. And I thought that was interesting because there would it be described is Anna mossy will apathy what what's the best way to describe why when they stopped being Led Zeppelin. There seemed to be very little interest in them actually getting back together again. Well, they did come back together for Live Aid in nineteen eighty-five from it. Yeah. But that was a long time. And then and then they came back again as you mentioned the nineties, but it's they kind of were these like long periods in between where even though they were offered huge amounts of money. They wouldn't get back together. Yeah. Maybe they thought the state of their autistic shows is greater than the money that they're being. I mean, I do think that's the case. And you know, rubber plaza kinda forged a successful solo career. He didn't really I don't think you really felt the need to do this anymore. And I think that the last few years of of Led Zeppelin had been difficult for and don't forget that robot plums. At. Almost excuse me in the morning. Row applause. You know, lost his leg in a in that terrible car crash on the island of Rhodes in ninety seventy five when you know, his wife. Was driving ran off the road in on the on that Greek and. Rubber plus body. I think you know, the right side of his body was very badly damaged. They knew the amputates is like apparently. And I remember seeing him. When was it say be the beginning of seventy seven. And he seemed to lopsided name is painful for him on stage. Sick call quite frequently. He was still having to do that. So I think he will. That must have been a complete colossal shop through a system and to show as well. So the in the end would we say before we get to calls? The takeaway is that maybe Jimmy page is a lot less of the ark typical Satan worshipping rockstar than anybody heretofore knew that he was much more family guy. Somewhere in between. I mean, I think. I think so. Satanism is really a dumb. I think he was interested in alternative religions and alternative views of of of of mysticism physics and within just kind of intrigued by all the areas that that's encompass that they think this association of him with satanism is is just really a bit city. Schoolboyish? Yup. But, you know, remember to it also sold a lot of albums. So I mean that that was definitely part of an image.

Party, you know get that live. Succeed Some, covers some, of their own stuff They and the strange part of it is they hadn't played. Together as remains for for years now. So this is and they came together it sounded like they were just. Out on the road played every night they were fantastic one of the great. What if stories in rock and roll. And I think certainly local rocker rolls what if these guys that you stay together a little while longer we toured with the Beatles. Rave reviews the appeared on Ed Sullivan their first album is one of the great, sixties garage band albums of all time and they just threw. In the towel a little, bit early if they hung in there you, kind of wonder what would have happened. But the tea party album pretty good what else have I heard there is I. Think we'll talk about the gray area. Maybe the bootlegs maybe they just imported I. Think there's a bird's lorries album erase there was an interesting night which doesn't show up. On the album in February sixty nine I was not Managing the tea party Mars how western management I came here. So that show The birds with the, flying burrito Boyce opening and so one point near the end, of the evening the old guidance h together you had, between the two bands eight present or former bird Was you know it. May seem performance including, the legendary grand, Parsons soon did live much longer after that but you know came out of Harvard was, really what are the true pioneers of country rock at Harvard I don't know why but he was of course the rumor is that it was Graham who convinced, Mick and Keefe or Keith depending. On and. I wanna Mick and Keefe to move in their country, direction and really would have been no wild horses had it, not been for gram Parsons He'd be sir I from what I understand I wasn't there pretty close with Keith yeah yeah So I think those. Are the only one son I know of velvet ground is you said Burs there really wasn't you have to consider the recording, technology to time if you wanna have a bootleg look. Down this. Reel to reel tape recorder which is a little hard to get in the door, excuse me what is that you're carrying in here now that. We really stopped anybody who, cared but you really didn't have a lot of recording going, on you, make me think Steve I remember being in a record store, in of all, places Tarpon, springs. Florida, back in the days. Of vinyl and thumbing through it and. They. Had Led, Zeppelin live the tea party obviously a boot and I thought, that somewhere else I've never seen again I don't know if it was. Any good or not I for all I know. You put it on To be might have been all your syrup if he. Can find it online and it's and it's pricey Yeah yeah so but they were just some classic moments there I have got to an imported Jeff Beck. Album that has about it's only about. Two and a half minutes. Of a little over two minutes, long we talked about beckon Rod Stewart doing I know I'm losing you Stewart did that, on his own but the Jeff Beck group and. With Beck doing.

Crowd sourcing a little bit of news this week been starting with it. Yeah. You said you had something you wanted to bring got real important news, real exciting stuff from band band, Namco God. They have confirmed after much speculation that new coming into the game dragging fighters. They're finally add in them. Goku and vegeta- are coming to dragon ball fighter. Not here yet. Knowing soon soon. Go characters, Goku Geeta brand new for deal. You can money, are they cannon, they are, can they are? Can't. Those are the candidates? So yeah, they, you know, unfamiliar, the game has as base characters super and Goku yet super, say ver-. Geeta. And now you can play as normal Goku and normal g are these? Are these actually only the second versions? No odor, no, that are in there also have it was like preorder bonus unlock through the arcade mode superstar saying gods. Coup and of Judah. And then there's Goku black who is not technically not a Goku, but it looks like Goku talks like Waco. Goku, say group of people are there multiple, go coups. Now there's there's only one who stayed online. It's like dragon ball on furrows over a long time frame. Yeah, upon which Goku at the start of it is a kid, preachy brother and then later on he's not anymore. And then later on, as I understand it, after that he is once again a kid. So it is not that there are multiple go coups is that there are multiple periods of Goku and they represent them on the rosters individual care that Bob Dylan movie where all the actors played different version of him throughout his life. Yeah, it's like every other dragon ball game where like the ultimate battle twenty two. That's a lot of characters await. It's nine Goku or something and a rich tapestry of. Rates go coup, okay. There's also a GTO. There's also fused zaibatsu which is technically part Goku. There's a lot of Goku already in the game. They're out in another Goku and the sincerely put out a video that says, Goku joins the fight. Yes, yes, his character trailer. And there's a splash screen where it says Goku joins the fight on the select screen is it just going to say, go who. Probably. Saying, go for super Sango Goku so it might just say, Goku Goku crazy to pay. They showed anything that makes it look like he'll be different. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, he's got like the Cayo, Ken. Okay, stuff. He's got the ball, right? Yeah. His moves look like like early dragon ball before he got forty percent. I'm aware is this who everybody actually wants? Is that why they locked it up behind deal. Obviously, I've seen them as far as Goku demand goes. I think the highest demand kid Goku from dragon ball when he's got the stick in the. Really been keeping tabs on the Goku Konomi Goku discourses, rice with, you know a lot. A lot of sides come. A lot of feeling looks better with black hair personally. I'm fine with that. Also. This is ridiculous. So that's, I mean, that's their out and go coup in their Judy. Got his tail. Okay. Yeah. I mean at that point he'll probably turn into like he'll probably gonna super eating. Zimba gold monkey. Yeah, probably level three. Yeah. Yeah. Why wouldn't you at that point? I was really disappointed because when you were reading the announcement told you and Jeff, I really thought you had said based Goku based Vigia totally different thing, but would have been more excited. Give him another year. They're put in based Goku Goku. Yeah..
