Good interview with James, which manages to (mostly) avoid asking the same old questions:

Quote :
I think that if you have to boil it down to one or two really big influences, I'd say maybe Keith Richards for his attitude and Jeff Beck for his guitar playing. I'm still a huge Jeff Beck fan, but I realized early on that I couldn't play like either of them, so it was easier for me to just make up my own stuff.

AC: In some pictures from the DVD you have an insolent Keith Richards look to you.

JW: Yeah, yeah I did. But I wasn't really like him. It was just I kind of looked a little bit like him. Anyway, I developed my own style; people ask me all the time, "How did you get that sound?" And it's just that I wrote my own music and I felt like I should play a lot of chords. I don't know why, but I did. In order to do that I had to figure out a way to pick the guitar so that I could play all those chords fast. That's how I developed this down-picking style, which is almost exclusively what I do. That has a certain sound to it, and that's something a lot of guys miss when they try to imitate me. They're not looking at the right hand; they're looking at the left hand.

Thanks Ted.

I'd really like to hear those recordings. Anyone mentioned this to Easy Action? Could be another project for them.

edit: ok just realized this is a comment on the article and it was only posted today, I've posted a reply to Mike myself.

And it seems the comments don't display in Firefox

It makes me wonder if there is any Chosen Few recordings or more pictures out there.

That's amazing news!

You could name your own price for a Coba Seas/Chosen Few cd, and I'd happily pay double.
