    Interesting stuff, like he, Deacon and Timothy performed PEF at Glennís memorial. Thanks for posting, NMB.

    Thereís an article about it linked in Bernieís press thread. It seems everyone in Nashville is linked to Vince Gill in some way or another.

    Thinking of you and hoping for the best. Stay strong Randy!

    Thanks again, NBM.

    I have a lot of respect for Bernie too. You can tell he lives life on his own terms.

    And at the same time doesn't throw anybody under the bus in public. A person to be respected in many ways.

    Another cracking video, good to see an interview that actually asks probing questions rather than the usual tepid gibberish musicians get asked. Bernie seems like a very grounded, principled bloke, fair play to him. You can understand just from that video the sort of mindset that made him quit in the first place.

    ITA, chaim and TLR - Bernie was not happy in the band so he left. Now, as he admitted, at his young age, maybe he didn't handle the situation as well as he could have at the time, but none of the band members did. The bottom line is he was unhappy, he left, and he takes responsibility for his decision. That's what mature, well-adjusted adults do.

    Indeed - I meant more from the angle that you can tell he holds the integrity of the music and band in very high regard, that seems synonymous to me with 'selling out' / lack of desire for stardom that is often cited as one his motivations for leaving.

    I see what you are saying. Bernie says in the HOTE doc that their goal from the onset was to make lots of money so I believe that he definitely wanted the band to be successful. I think for him that once it actually happened, coupled with the change in the band's musical direction and internal conflicts, he decided that the price of fame was too high for him.

Bernie and John spoke for 77 minutes. Pleased to hear that Bernie is writing new material and that he's still friends with Glyn Johns, who stayed at Bernie's house recently.
    Thank you NMB! Really enjoyed the clip and would love to see Bernie share more of his experiences. Very insightful wish he'd write a book!

    Part 3, talkin' bout the guitars on "Take It Easy" and people mispronouncing his name. This one is really short.

    Hmm, I don't know enough about guitars to really get what he's saying - what does a "phaser" do for the song? Too technical for me!

    I do get what he's saying about coming up with the lick in between the chords, though - good work, Bernie!

    Appropriate it got put up on his birthday!
