I hope you'll excuse an extensive Guitarnerding re Cipollina of Quicksilver?:

Wigkey: Equipment and technique[edit]
Cipollina had a unique guitar sound, mixing solid state and valve amplifiers as early as 1965. He is considered one of the fathers of the San Francisco psychedelic rock sound.

"I like the rapid punch of solid-state for the bottom, and the rodent-gnawing distortion of the tubes on top."[2]

To create his distinctive guitar sound, Cipollina developed a one-of-a-kind amplifier stack. His Gibson SG guitars had two pickups, one for bass and one for treble. The bass pickup fed into two Standel bass amps on the bottom of the stack, each equipped with two 15-inch speakers. The treble pickups fed two Fender amps: a Fender Twin Reverb and a Fender Dual Showman that drove six Wurlitzer horns.[3]

Cipollina used a custom foot switch setup to select reverb, tremolo, Maestro Echoplex (the unit mounted on the right of the Twin Reverb), and Standel Modulux (on the left of the twin reverb). 12 volt automotive running lights indicated which effect was being used. In the 1980s, he used a series of standard stomp-box pedals, including a chorus and a Boss Spectrum SP-1.

Cipollina also employed a Gibson Maestro Fuzz and Vox wah-wah/volume pedals. For slide effects, he favored a plastic Bic lighter for precision work, or ran his guitar against the mike stand for more dramatic effects.

Throughout his career, Cipollina usually played Gibson SGs, but in the late '70s and into the '80s could also be seen playing a Carvin DC150, a double-cutaway with more modern electronics. He played with finger picks, a thumb pick, and used a whammy bar extensively which, he explained to Jerry Garcia, was to make up for his weak left hand. For slide playing, he often switched to one of his Les Paul guitars, played lap-style, using his leg on a monitor for support.

Zoefonts? didn't catch that band's name - reminds me of the Jet Black Berries - that I first heard on your show back in the mid 80s
  Sun. 4/17/16 3:19pm Agent Peter:

There's a great clip on YouTube of Cipollina performing with Link Wray..
  Sun. 4/17/16 3:20pm George Kopp:

Cipollina could get that crazy rattlesnake guitar sound that I never heard anyone else achieve.

John Cipollina is my guitar god. I have a shrine dedicated to him in my living room, which includes his autograph tipped onto an 8x10 glossy.

I have the paperback, the Velvet Underground by Michael Leigh, published in 1963. The band named themselves after the title to this book.

Boss show, Mr. Kelly - thanks

I don't know if the typo was intentional or not, but 'Venus in Spurs' is pure genius.
  Fri. 4/22/16 10:01am bk:

"Venus in Spurs" is pure evil...and when I say evil I mean genius. It's the only reason I ever had to not completely dismiss Lou Reed.
