Reid was one of several special guests to appear during the D’Addario NYXL string party held at Guitar Center in Carle Place, New York. (Photo: Own Work – 2015)
Always energized and never passé, Hot Tuna, acoustic as well as electric, has endless musicianship and volume that just keeps on giving. Driven by Jorma’s fretwork and Jack’s bass-line prowess, Jefferson Airplane and 1967’s “Summer Of Love” would have sounded different without the Tuna duo in the influential San Francisco-based band. It was eventually called Jefferson Starship. Hot Tuna is blues and rock history. (Photo: Own Work – 2019)
Whether it was recording with David Bowie, John Lennon, Mott The Hoople’s Ian Hunter or several well-known others, Earl Slick has always had a unique electric guitar tone.
