RE: [thewire] Re: derek bailey
- My favorite description of Bailey's playing was something like
he "learned how to play guitar so well that he decided to pretend he
couldn't play at all".

Well, I guess I should have put "wrong" in quotes.
I was talking to Ben Hanna, of Grandpa's Ghost, today and I said that
in Bailey's playing a lot of the time it's the space between notes
that is most important.

- Damn, wish I still had that 10cd Sakamoto box of work from the early
to mid 80's. There was some good stuff on there. I liked the disc
with the picture of him at the piano, and a shadow of an insect
behind him. Hard to keep track of all his stuff though.
