Alan Williams commented on Jud Hair's group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"J.J. Cale was truely one of the great song writers of our time.  I got to see him in 1986 opening for Bonnie Raitt.  He was a very low key performer.  One very memorable show from a very talented person.  He will be missed."

Alan Williams commented on Jud Hair's group Sugar Mountain: The Neil Young Group ...
"That was the photo I was talking about.  Now I know.  Must have still been a very small company at that time.  The first I had heard of Taylor was late eighties.  That NY tour was one of my favorites, if you haven't seen it…"

"I saw the Rust Never Sleeps concert at William and Mary Hall in Williamsburg.  First time I saw NY live, and first time I ever saw a show that left me wondering if I really did see what I saw."

Alan Williams replied to Greg Ballantyne's discussion What is your favorite 21st century Neil Young tune? in the group Sugar Mountain: The Neil Young Group ...
"The concert was very different than anything I've ever seen.  His road crew acted out the story while he and Crazy Horse played the music.  The band was set up in the center of the stage, and around the stage were backdrops of places…"

Alan Williams replied to Greg Ballantyne's discussion What is your favorite 21st century Neil Young tune? in the group Sugar Mountain: The Neil Young Group ...
"My favorite album from this century is Greendale.  I saw it performed live, and it was one of those concerts that I couldn't believe what I saw.  If you want to see someone take a real chance in concert alot of this concert is on…"

Alan Williams replied to Terry Angelli's discussion Acoustic? Electric? Or both? in the group Sugar Mountain: The Neil Young Group ...
"I really like the hypnotic groove in some of his electric stuff such as Like A Hurricane, or Down By The River.  Really hard to come up with a song like that and not go over the top."

Alan Williams replied to Jud Hair's discussion What's your favorite decade of Neil Young's career?? in the group Sugar Mountain: The Neil Young Group ...
"How do you decide this with an artist who has over sixty albums out.  He's had hits in every decade going back to the sixties.  For me it's the seventies when I was given a copy of Harvest for my birthday.  That album got me…"

Alan Williams commented on Jud Hair's group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Been awhile since I've been on here.  With NY every tour is completly different. I've seen him over 25 times, my favorite two were Rust Never Sleeps, fall of 78 in William and Mary Hall, and Greendale at Riverport.  I feel for…"

Alan Williams commented on Edward Sparks's group Protest Music Revisited
"Luis,  I think that music is a great way to get a message noticed through the din that is comercial broadcasting these days.  With wealthy conservatives able to buy up all of the air time a good song puts its message bouncing around in the…"

Alan Williams replied to Peter Pauer's discussion Where have all the neat guitar straps gone ? in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)

Alan Williams replied to Jud Hair's discussion How do YOU "rate" an acoustic guitar ??? in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"For me I think that the order is  sound, playability, material, workmanship, looks, then price.  I prefer guitars that are solid wood rather than plywood because I know that they sound better the more they are played.  These days I…"
