Duane Eddy's House of Twang

Marty Stuart.


I have been listening to a lot of Marty Stuart lately. I know Duane played on " The Shape I'm In" on Marty's 1992 album but can anyone tell me if Duane plays on the track " The Wild One" from his 1989 Hillbilly Rock album. If its not Duane then Marty has the twang just right.


I'm gun shy with these thread titles.

Me too. My first thought was Oh no, what now.


Love me some Marty!!! One of the tightest bands I've ever seen, and not just instrumentally, but vocally as well! Not many bands out there that can can play AND SING (4-part harmony, some of it acapella!) that well anymore, it's a dying breed.

Another band that is THAT good is Los Lonely Boys. Unbelievable.


Apologies, never meant to scare anyone. Never crossed my mind. I will be more careful next time. I was just trying to highlight my admiration for a great artist.


Marty really seems like a mensch, a consummate artist and person. I love that he, with all his stature, is very happy to also become a sideman to 'his guitarist' Cousin Kenny Vaughn's works. Enough ego (in a good way) to hold center stage, for decades now, and enough humility to be a supporter and participant in ensembles. Deed has mentioned what a lovely guy he is. All that talent and fame, and yet his love for music and the people who play it is never compromised. Love this thing he organized for Earl Scruggs not so long before he passed.


Can watch this one over and over and over as well:


Coming back to the "Wild One" question, I'm pretty sure that was more than likely Richard Bennett emulating DE on that track. He was doing quite a bit of that around Nashville at the time...


man - this thread title also almost gave me a heart attack! Marty is in my opinion one of the best players yielding a telecaster today - and it's his secondary instrument. I believe he's first and foremost a Mandolin player. Love the Marty Stuart show. His tone on the Clarence B-Bender though his reverb drenched Princeton is THE tele tone IMO.

As mentioned before, here he is happy to be the sideman at a RECORD SHOP gig. Total Class.


Marty Stuart and his Superlatives, with me — at Troubadour. Lovely show and terrific folks.


great interview with marty...about clarence white's tele...

such a good guy



Marty has the history and the chops. Then, he surrounded himself with some of the best players alive. Their name, The Fabulous Superlatives, is well deserved. He seems down to earth and truly likeable.


I remember watching a country station on Freesat UK . Each week it enthralled me watching The Marty Stuart show . Duane was on one week playing a great rendition of " Raunchy " ! - Then all of a sudden we didn't get the show anymore !


Here's Duane playing "Raunchy" with Marty. I wasn't getting RFD in high def then so it's not as crisp a screen capture as I would like.

Thankyou Rich ! - It would be so great if Duane and Marty got together in a recording studio !
