don't know about them.
I demoed the EDP to him at NAMM many years ago. (there's a whole funny
story to go with that, ask me some time.) He was mildly interested but I
never heard that he got into it.

Bowie, I can't imagine it. Many of his guitar players I can, and they have.
Not sure about the other band members.
>ed van halen stanley jordan
Both of them own EDP's, unless they sold them. I don't know how they use them.

Notice there is no 'p' in it. Please keep it that way.
also an EDP owner, if he still has them. I think he is waiting for James to
give him permission to use it.
record a bazillion pointless notes. overdub a bazillion more. my head hurts.

you mean the guy from viva la bam? Absolutely, he needs to start looping.
interestingly, Oscar Peterson has used loopers. No idea about Cecil Taylor
Les uses looping in live shows all the time now. he uses some pedal for his
loops, but I'm not sure what. His looping is mostly very simple (at least
what I've seen/heard).
don't see it.
Good stuff, Maynard.
I'm tempted to agree. But on the other hand he seems to cover a lot of
ground without it. It's like wondering what Tuck Andress would do with a
looper. He fills all available space already, why would he need/desire it?
no idea. But Bob Weir has a pair of EDP's. I don't know what he does with
them though. Rob Wasserman also.
>if ya know about any of these folks looping,send a link.
>your pal, gout boy"owww my pedals"
Maybe some of the others you list are looping also but I don't know, I just
happened to be more privy to people who owned EDP's over the years.
However like Claude, I doubt that any of these folks are going to do
anything revolutionary with looping. They may be amazing musicians, but
they have their voice already, established long ago. Maybe some will turn
their music in a loopy direction and do something remarkable, but most
On the other hand, we have amazing (yet less famous) musicians today in the
present revolutionizing the whole concept of looping with new techniques
and ideas. Looping is a part of their voice and their music down to the
core. Pay attention to them, they are defining the future right now.
Nostalgia is fun, we all enjoy it sometimes. But I think if you lose
yourself in the past you will miss the extraordinary stuff happening today
in the present. From what I can tell, genius is happening all the time.
