BlueJay BS: 'What do you listen to'? (20) BS: 'What do you listen to'? 23 Feb 03


I know this is the same question Beudangles asked in his recent thread. I nearly posted this on that thread, but I feared it would get lost, being thirty repies later. I think this deserves a new thread.

We recently had Stephen Bennett play a concert at my daughter's house. He also did a guitar workshop in the afternoon, before dinner. You have to understand, this guy is an amazing acoustic guitarist. I've seen better guitarists, and I've seen better humorists, but I've never seen ANYBODY combine the two skills the way Stephen Bennett did in our small venue of like 50 people. This guy is absolutely one of the best figerstyle, (and flat-picking) guitarists out there. To have him play in our town of <1000 people was a treat for the entire town,

Back to the subject. During his guitar workshop, someone asked, "What music do you listen to"?

Stephen thought, then replied, "I don't listen to anything, much, except in the car. People give me all kinds of CD's as I travel, and I try to listen to them when I'm driving. When I'm at home, I don't listen to anything."

"I figure if I have time to listen to music, then that's time I could be playing myself".

His guitar playing really shows it. Thanks, BlueJay
