Re: (TV) Keith, Sterling, and Fred "Sonic" Smith
I didn't mean to say that either of them couldn't or didn't ever do vibrato. I
meant that in their style as a whole, it's not that significant (though Quine
seems to use it more in his more recent work than he used to). I love Quine's
work for things like 'Waves of Fear' and 'Blank Generation', not for his
ability to introduce subtle nuances of tone! Similarly, what I remember as
being most distinctive about RT's playing is his 'chordal' solos -- applying
acoustic playing styles to the electric guitar.
