Ridge Blaster & The Tucson Stratocasters
March 7, 2020 Very little intrigues me more than a horseback rider blasting across a ridge line.
Daily Whip Out: "Ridge Blaster"
When I was just a lad, I attended the University of Arizona in Tucson (1965-1970) and just missed encountering this Tucson singer with the big pipes:
I did, however, play in various Tucson bands with a couple different git pickers who were in the Stone Poneys with her. They were both fond of Strats (Fender Stratocasters).
Speaking of Strat Masters, I had lunch today with Jack Alves, who is a great rock guitarist and played with Hans Olsen and I in the Razz Band.

I am asking Jack to provide some original licks to a video of Geronimo that will support this tour:
