Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

The Amazon Show: Terrifying Possibility #492

The guy playing Garcia will hold the guitar like this. There’s always one guy in the biopic band that doesn’t know how to hold the guitar.

Also: what the hell bass is that guy playing? Kramer made one with a split headstock, but not until the 1970’s.


  1. Do you know when the pic is from? I think that’s a ’72 Tele that Ali is holding, so it could well fit the Kramer timeline…..

  2. Also, embiggening the pics is no longer a thing?

  3. Finally, I now feel stupid and shallow for posting about guitar gear after scrolling down a bit and reading your excellent, poignant and absolutely spot-on posts about Malcolm X. Excellent work.

  5. Damn, if that were a Gibson, I’d say that Ali looks a helluva lot like the Texas Cannonball
