The Jeff Beck Show at the Nokia Theater was a tremendous success and Jeff was kind enough to sign a guitar to be donated to the MidNight Mission. Thanks to Del Breckenfeld at Fender Guitars for helping us put everything together. The guitar is being auctioned off at the MidNight Mission website which is www.midnightmission.org All proceeds will go directly to the homeless. This is a cause we believe in heavily, and your support will be greatly appreciated.Rusty Anderson from Paul McCartney Band was just in. It’s always good to see old friends, and we wish him much success with Paul and his other projects. You can check out the video on our YouTube Channel.
Ron Blair from Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers was also just in. Ron is an old band mate of Normans prior to him joining the Heart Breakers. Norm and Ron discussed old times, Ron purchased a beautiful White Showman Amp to use on their latest recordings. You can also check out the video on our YouTube Channel.
Bret McKenzie from the TV Show “Flight of the Concords” was in. He bought a beautiful Gibson J-45 from the 50’s and some ukulele. Bret was heading to Amsterdam for one month to play with the group. You should check out the show, it’s very entertaining. It’s both funny and very good musically. Also check out our video on Norman’s YouTube Channel.
John Shanks was also just in. John is an old friend of Normans and is one of the most prolific producer and guitarist around. He has produced Bon Jovi, Melissa Ethridge, Keith Urban, Myley Cyrus, and many many many others. Please check out our video on Norman’s YouTube Channel.
You never know who might stop by. It’s always great to see old friends. It’s almost like going to work everyday.
Best wishes, Norman and the staff at Norman’s Rare Guitars.
