    Default Eddie Phone Interview 1982



    Great interview with Eddie. Itís a great peek into the past, this interview was done right after Diver Down was released. Ed plays acoustic guitar ideas (over the phone), he even plays a recorded version of Jump in its early stages via a hand held Walkman type recorder over the phone. I havenít heard this interview before and thought it was cool. Itís Ed being Ed on this, if you know what I mean. Love it! Great interview. Eddie tells The interviewer not to repeat many things on this interview, worth the listen itself. Enjoy!

    Yeah, it's the Jas Obrecht interview, that later appeared in Guitar Player (Holdsworth cover),
    edited.

    Obrecht's question about the fusion-esque lick in "Full Bug," goes totally over Ed's head.
    Jas is referring to the wide stretch lick, but Ed thinks he means the "DA..NA..DANA..." thing
    before the harmonica solo.

    That always cracked me up.

    His comments about Randy kinda bugged me.

    It's a blast to go back in time & hear that.

    If i got this in '83 on a cassette, i would have lost my freakin' mind.

    Best Ed interview I ever heard. This dropped on the Internet years ago and then was pulled. Thanks to whomever uploaded it again.
