May issue did
which should have been given to
Kamal Asar. Also, our June feature on
Jerry Miller misspelled the last name
of Jack Pimentel. Finally, last month's
"Hit list" review of the revised/
expanded edition of Domenic Priore's
Riot on Sunset Strip: Rock 'n' Roll's
Last Stand in Hollywood mistakenly
showed the cover of the original edition of the book. VG apologizes for
any confusion created by the errors.
Great American Journeyman
ils Lofgren's resumé stretches 47 years
and counting. He joined Neil Young's
band at age 19 and was a member of Crazy
Horse before his own band, Grin, landed a
record deal in 1971. After Grin, he forged a
solo career and in '84 joined Bruce Springsteen
and the E Street Band. His tenure with the
group hasn't slowed him from recording and
touring as a solo artist.
After the release of the 10-disc Face the
Music box set, Lofgren toured with multiinstrumentalist Greg Varlotta. The shows
were essentially acoustic, and halfway
through the three-week run, Lofgren's wife,

A collection of vintage and rare
Gretsch guitars owned by Randy
Bachman will be on display until
July 10 at The Country Music Hall
of Fame and Museum in Nashville.
Dubbed "American Sound and
Beauty: Guitars from the BachmanGretsch Collection," the 75 instruments represent the largest collection of guitars ever displayed at the
Museum and marks the first time
the public has seen part of Bachman's extensive Gretsch collection.
The Gretsch Foundation, the charitable arm of the Gretsch family,
purchased the collection in 2008.
