Happy for Derek getting exposure but I feel like the secret beach I had to myself and my friends has just been featured on some lame spring break show on the E network or something.

Hmmm...I wonder if it's possible to be seeing the start of something?
Yeah, American Idol is the most watched show on TV, but just maybe some sort of alternative attitude is brewing and making headway?

Who knows - don't want to read too much into one RS cover....

I also remember telling Derek back in November that I thougt the days of easy fan access were probably coming to an end....he just laughed and said "Nah....those days will be around for awhile...."

I think Derek's being on the cover of the RS is just grand, as my dear uncle would say. Saw him at 14 at the Cotton Club in ATL. Gonna buy 5 copies for my mother, yeah!

i love the association of Dave Matthews with those guys. I also love the way that the mention of 3 new good guitarists is an immediate request of Rolling Stone for every idiot to share who he or she thinks is God's gift to all of us. Spurting off names of people who may be good or bad, but regardless aren't the subject of the story and no one cares about. They make these sudden judgements as if his or her word is fact and he/she is a genius...wow is it stupid. one of my favorites was this though

quote:
Mike McCready, Trey Anastasio and Dave Matthews should all be there to join Mayer, Trucks, and Frusciante. How cool would that lineup be? I love to hear all of their guitar solos in songs! Amazing stuff….we are lucky!

Did you see all the "Who is Derek Trucks?" comments? Just goes to show you how uninformed the RS crowd is these days. Idiots....


well as of 10pm Central time, there are more than a few nice things being said about Derek..

i still read RS, although I don't buy every issue...too many ads, and it seems to be about the "good looking young hipster pretty people" of the music scene..this is an indication of the impact that Derek, Warren and the ABB are making..to make these people take notice shows just how good these musicians are..but we already knew that..

Nice PR-it's all good. Certainly can't hurt.

Don't understand why people get so bent about what people say on a RS board. Who cares?

Frusciante is actually a bit older than the other two, & has dealt with some demons. Interesting cat.

WHOA! When I saw this thread title, I assumed it was a joke/ hoax or a REQUEST, not a reality! WOW!

I have subscribed to Rolling Stone for about 12-13 years. It is dirt cheap to do so, and it can have enough decent material in it to make it worth the 78 cents per issue or so that it costs. BUt their cover photos have been so light on musical talent - I mean, at this point Jennifer Aniston has been on the cover more than the ABB I think!!!! I am not joking!!! - that I don't expect anything from the cover. FOr Derek Trucks to be on the cover, well, that is a sure sign that our man's ship is coming in.

Frusciante is a monster too. What is cool about him being on the cover is that usually Flea or Kiedis, as outspoken media-savvy frontmen, get the press. Good for John.

HOly cow! is there hope for ROlling Stone?!?!?!?!?!

Derek on the cover of Downbeat and ROlling Stone within weeks of each other - you go, Derek. Well deserved. All of this on top of my man Tommy Bolin on the cover of GUitar Player. Maybe it is safe for me to hang out at the magazine rack again. - Jim

I'm more impressed with Derek (& Susan) being on the cover of Downbeat. Of course, Downbeat got hip to Derek early on, and has been quite supportive of him and his music. As far as the RS crowd, most of them suffer from ADD and I doubt Derek will try to cater to them. I think Derek is exactly where he wants to be, both personally and musically and I doubt seriously he entertains "GUITAR GOD" notions.

been gettin rolling stone since the seventies----for the past 10-15 years,the covers have been kinda ridiculous,but the writing is oftentimes worse----i'll be surprised if the story on Derek is more than introductory fluff,but they have surprised me (rarely) before..........

I agree, sibwalker, I was stoked to see Derek and Susan on the cover of Downbeat.

But RS finally came around, well, I'll check it out.

LMAO Linnie!! Yes - it's about time we got some good RS material (although I admit I did enjoy the Bob Dylan interview they ran 'recently' but how long ago was that?)

Just a little aside here....John Mayer played VBCC in Huntsville last night, I had given a trip to this to our office manager for Christmas. She's been a long-time fan. She tells us Mayer spent some time giving credit to his Alabama base for getting his career going. Said he ran a regular circuit from Tuscaloosa/B'ham/Muscle Shoals-Florence seven years ago. Wasn't aware of the connection. Good info....

i agree with the other cover boy, the dude from the Peppers.....it seems that now that he has his **** back together the talent and energy just flows out of him.....

i suppose i need to hear more John Mayer to pick up on the "guitar god" status i guess, because i don't hear it.

funny about all the comments about Trey being this "guitar god" on the RS site. i TOTALLY don't hear that, and i listen to Phish!

LinnieXX, I'm not the biggest Phish fan, but I do consider Trey a guitar hero - he can play with great speed, can handle different scales and modes, plays "in" and "out," plays over odd time signatures; I thought that on a technical level he was miles above many players in the 90s.
Many of my pals find him too self-indulgent, and that is a fair comment, but I think he has great chops.

thanks hastings. i was also "who you are is a path you take".

Jim, i respect your feelings about Trey, so maybe you could be so kind as to point out a specific example of some virtuosity on Trey's part (preferably a studio cut) that demonstrates your point.....i have all of Phishs studio stuff.

thanks!

hey didja all notice that the Frusciante people are posting, but not any Mayer people? and look at how much support Derek is getting! its great.

Linnie,

I think the Chili Peppers would've been done if Frusciante didn't come back to the band. He's done a few solo albums as side projects-they aren't essential listens, but they are really, really interesting.

"No one's better than Hendrix..."

lol, who comes up with this stuff on the RS staff? High school sophomores?

I don't even listen to what they say on the RS forums. Most of them are uneducated about music or just posers.
I'm kind of mad they didn't put Derek in the middle

Bottom Line,

Who cares or gives a damn if Derek is on the cover of "Rolling Stone"? Truth is, RS is nothing but a magazine for the superficially hip, the ones that need somebody to tell them who's hot for next 5 minutes, and then move on to somebody else. Personally I like it that Derek gets the cover (and more importantly, interviews, articles, and CD and concert reviews) in such magazines as Downbeat (the major jazz magazine for more years than I care to remember), Blues Revue (good "general interest" magazine, for all those interested in all the different "genres" of the blues), Relix (the "jamband" bible) and our very own Hittin the Note. At least, the readers of these magazines (and there are some other good magazines out there) are seriously interested in good music and the artists who make the music and don't worry so much about who's "hip" or a "guitar god" or "guitar hero" or any of the other media BS that doesn't mean "sh*t". Dig the artist for their music, but don't destroy them by making them "gods", "heroes" or worst yet, "ROCK STARS". Truth is, these artist are real people and they sure don't need to be put on any kind of a pedestal. Let their music speak for itself. I think most of these artist would appreciate that more than any cover of any magazine.

I saw trey on the HDNET Jammy's special. He came up on stage with Derek, Warren, gregg and the Mule and did Soulshine. While he did a pretty good job it was pretty obvious by his body language and actions on the stage that he knew he was third fiddle.

When I saw Trey w/ the ABB at the Big House Show, he was shown up by both of them. Trey had a cool solo, but nothing fantastic. Then, Derek took his solo, and Trey didn't play any rhythm during it, rather just stood there open mouthed and stared - that was all he could do.
