Weekend Musical Diversion: Strawberry Fields

February 3, 2012

There’s no doubt about it…I’m a big Andy Timmons fan. Who is this guy? He’s the former guitar player in the 80’s metal band Danger Danger and current guitar player in Olivia Newton-John’s touring band. But his best work, in my humble opinion, is his solo work.

I attended his guitar clinic in Chicago back in the fall of 2009 and had a chance to hear him jam for a good 45 minutes. He played selections from previous albums and teased us with a few amazing Beatles cover songs he had been working on. He told us a new album of Beatles music would be released in the near future. I was intrigued.

About two years later, Timmons has finally released the CD, Timmons Plays Sgt. Pepper. “Strawberry Fields Forever” is the only non-Sgt. Pepper song on the CD and, as you can see, features some tasty fretwork. It’s a good way to start the weekend…have a good one. New posts will be coming soon…thanks for stopping by…
