Today's OTD pissed me off. What is Jimmy, an internet troll? Is he going to Rickroll us tomorrow?

They could have quite easily crowdsourced the On This Day entries from members of the forum.

Well to be fair....my entry would read 19th September 1976 Led Zeppelin released Led Zeppelin 3, been a fan for years and here's a picture of a kitten to prove it. :thumbsup:

The site does have to appeal to a wide range of fans.

Today's post: March 23rd 2013.

Here’s one for the guitarists out there. With the incredible Thumbs Carlisle, aka Kenneth Carlille, paying a playing tribute to Country/Swing guitarists that helped drive the instrument into Country in the 50s.

On This Day has become a vehicle for whatever Peter Makowksi finds on the internet and thinks is cool.

This is all getting a little tenuous. Ok, so it's got guitars in it... but there's no other link to Jimmy or even this particular day in musical history.
Unimpressed.

Precisely! That site began as an over-hyped vanity project for Jimmy and is now nothing more than an occasional curiousity for Peter.

I think we're up to 3/4 posts by Peter now. They're getting boring really quickly.

I'll give him credit for trying. I just wish they'd all realize while it doesn't take much to satiate the masses, it's going to take more. They could have easily done a behind the scenes clip of the John Varvatos filming, for example. IMHO artist's official websites are supposed to provide content and features on the artist you can't find elsewhere.

I agree about them being boring very quickly. Only Jimmy can make them be interesting again.

I love today's OTD video, that is an over-the-top performance of "Walking into Clarksdale" I think.

Back to the repeats - and the incorrect info. They really should have corrected the "we played in Paris in 1980" thing.

Very touching that Jimmy chose to remember Ronnie Lane's birthday, as he has done previously On This Day. RIP Ronnie.

Mark,

Really pleased to see that your photo was chosen - very appropriate. Ronnie Lane was a huge loss for so many reasons. For me, he combined original musical talent with a very sharp sense of humour. So sad abut his final years.

I first heard Gallows Pole on a 1962 Folkways ‘Smithsonian’ LP by Fred Gerlach who was, I believe, the first white guy to play the twelve-string guitar in this Leadbelly style. I was so inspired by his version that I used it as a basis, completely changing the arrangement, for the Led Zeppelin Gallows Pole. However his twelve-string playing is superb.

Fred comments "this is based on one of Leadbelly’s song, which itself has a long history dating back hundreds of years in England. The rhythms and finger picking styles have taken four years to evolve."

Fred apparently ‘ran around’ with Tiny Leadbetter, Leadbelly’s niece, who turned him onto the twelve-string guitar.

Not really an On This Day either, unless he found that Fred Gerlach record on April 12, 1962.
