WHAT THE HELL

Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Peeking through the Hedges

Michael Hedges, that is… What an innovative guitar player he was, back in the ’80s and ’90s. I was seriously taken by him at the time and wanted to emulate him, but I couldn’t figure out what exotic tunings he used. He could make one guitar sound like four guitars and a glockenspiel. Accompanied by a djembe.

He died in a car crash along Highway 128, a road I’ve traversed many times on our way up to Mendocino. A real shame. He had a huge talent, a terrific voice, and he seemed to be enjoying himself up there.
