Hi

Just something I was wondering, did Brian stopped playing the original Red Special? I only saw him using the copies in Hamburg. Does he want to save his original?


You got the right key baby, but the wrong key hole.

He uses his Red Special 90% of the time. He has a (Greg Fryers) copy for Fat Bottomed Girls, the SUPER copy for Bad Company (and We Believe?) and the copy with his face for Crazy Little Thing Called Love.

Ah really?

I always thought it was worn at the frets like it was in 1993, now it looks like new...

Did he repaint it and so on?

Yes, Greg did lots of work on it, stripped it down, re-wiring and a general clean. it was off the road for about 4 months but that was all.
