David Lindley (born March 21, 1944 in San Marino, California) is an American musician whose work is most often remembered for his association and work with Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon, and other high profile musicians. He has mastered a wide variety instruments. Acoustic Guitar Magazine referred to Lindley as a "maxi-instrumentalist" in a cover story on his work.[1] The majority of the instruments that Lindley plays are stringed instruments. They include, but are not limited to the guitar, banjo, lap steel guitar, Upright bass, electric bass guitar, oud, mandolin, hardingfele, bouzouki, cittern, ba&#287;lama, gumbus, charango, cümbü&#351;, ud, weissenborn, and zither.

Lindley has performed as a bandleader of his own band, El Rayo-X, and has been hired to serve in that capacity for other artists on tour.[1] He is noted as one of the premiere session musicians today. In addition, he uses his talents to score music to film, and has worked extensively in that capacity as well.

[edit] Career

[edit] Early work
During 1966 to 1970 Lindley was part of the eclectic psychedelic band Kaleidoscope. Between his work in the studio as a session musician, or on tour as a sideman or bandleader, Lindley has worked on learning new instruments. He was bandleader of his own rock band, El Rayo X, from 1981-1983, which produced three albums.


[edit] Work with other artists

Lindley with Ry Cooder, Brisbane, 1980Lindley is particularly well-known for his work as a session musician, especially for rock musicians. Aside from his own solo and band efforts, it is difficult to list all the musicians who have collaborated with Lindley. He has left a visible mark on the work of: Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon, Linda Ronstadt, Curtis Mayfield, James Taylor, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Terry Reid, Dolly Parton, Bob Dylan and Rod Stewart. He has also collaborated with fellow guitarists Ry Cooder and Henry Kaiser. Artist Ben Harper has credited Lindley's distinctive slide guitar style as a major influence on his own playing and in 2006 Lindley sat in on Harper's album Both Sides of the Gun. He is known among the guitar community for his use of "cheap" instruments sold at Sears department stores and intended for amateurs. He uses these for the unique sound they produce, especially with a slide. In the early 1990s, he toured and recorded with Hani Naser adding percussion to his solo performances, and in recent years he has also toured extensively and recorded with reggae percussionist Wally Ingram.


[edit] Instruments
Lindley has an extremely large collection of rare, and to the majority of Westerners, unusual looking and sounding instruments. There is a large and detailed display of quite a few rare guitars, as well as instruments that originate from the Middle East and other parts of the world. Lindley has listed and categorized many of them on his website[2] but admits that he has "absolutely no idea", how many instruments he owns and plays, having gathered them since the 1960s.[1]

Also known as:.."The Prince of Polyester"...and "Mr. Dave"



The man can play anything with strings, but is best know for his slide guitar work. A nice guy who marches to a different beat....

His slide guitar on "Mercury Blues" while with "El Rayo X" is just pure . . .nasty.

Lindley's most famous lead is on Jackson Browne's Running on Empty. I can hum every note of that solo. Amazing slide on the lap steel. One of my favorite tunes and records in my entire collection.

I got to see David play with the Blind Boys of Alabama (along with Charlie Musselwhite and John Hammond) right after Spirit of the Century came out about 9 years ago. It was mesmerizing. It was at a festival and half the group I was with didn't appreciate it, nor know anything about the Blind Boys, and actually left early to see other music (so wrong!).

Still one of the best hour and 15 minutes I've spent in my life. David of course added so much to that performance and record.

As BIGV so wisely stated, pick up "El Rayo-X" by David Lindley. If you don't like it, PM me and I'll pay you for it, that's what a great record it is. I'm sure amazon would have it. Let me add a disclaimer to that: If you don't like jumpin' reggae/ska influenced rock 'n' roll, don't buy it, you might not like it. Just a tremendous record, trust me. I actually went to high school with a guy named Bernie Larsen who played with David Lindley (no, he's not on El Rayo-X) for a few years and I saw him with Lindley, I'm guessing it was 1982 at The Palomino in Hollywood. It was ALL reggae, and it was a tremendous show. My opinion of Lindley is that he can probably play just about anything he chooses to; if ABB invited him onstage and he wanted to do it, I'm sure he could blend right in with Haynes/Trucks, probably teach them a lick or two. PS: Just checked, amazon.com has El Rayo-X for $13.96.

Main thing about Lindley is his 'synergy' with Jackson Browne. He was "Keith" to Jackson...or many other analogies could be made. When they parted ways....Browne's records and to some extent his'career', went down the tubes. Good to see they are again occasionally working together.

I got to see Dave and El Rayo X at a reggaefest in around 1986. Killer show!! I THINK he is the guy who sings the falsetto verse of "Stay" on Jackson Browne''s "Running on Empty."

Saw him play solo 2 or 3 years ago. He played all kinds of stringed instruments, some I had never seen or heard of before. He was highly entertaining.

He used to play a lot with Ry Cooder. In fact, there's a torrent on Dimeadozen of a Soundstage show from 1978 with those two.

There's also a David Lindley & El Rayo X DVD shot at Rockpalast on there as well as numerous audio concerts.

Love his versions of the Temp's, "Papa was a Rollin' Stone" and Zevon's, "Werewolves of London" on the Linda Ronstandt-produced, "Very Greasy"! Not a bad tune on this mo-fo!
