The RockinBuds sound is based on the guitar sounds,textures and recording methods of the 60's & 70's as used by The Rolling Stones. Music recorded from amps fully cranked into mikes. No effect pedals were used in these recordings to get a very 'natural' guitar sound. Acoustic guitars are vintage Gibson, Martins & Epiphones, Electric guitars are Fender & Gibsons. These songs were not rehearsed. They were played in real time by real people, no loops or cut and pastes. I love the acoustic sound of Jimmy Page and the 'weaving' sounds of Keith Richards & The Stones. For me that is the beginning and the end. The Rockin Buds are; Sammy Gluck, acoustic,electric,slide guitars, bass, percussion, lead vocals...Sam is a guitar afficionado and has realized his lifelong fantasy of making a rock n roll record with the help of...Eddie Seville, of the New England based band Steel Rodeo, on guitar, drums, bass, percussion, piano and back up vocals. Eddie is owner/operator of Cottage Sound Studio in Middlebury,Ct, drummer for Frank Carillo and the Bandoleros and consumate musician, producer,arranger and engineer and an AWEsome Rockin Bud... Anyone can be a Rockin Bud...Play this LOUD and Rock Hard...It's Only Rock n Roll.
