1 THE NOCTURNE BRAIN™ (actually loves hippies) 2 years ago If you dont know Bucky Pizzarelli, one of the first dedicated Gretsch 7 string players beside Van Eps.. you might know his prolific protege son, John Pizarelli. A 7 string Jazz'r and crooner who learned everything from his father. Bucky is 89 this year and played early on w George Barnes and a million others, also was part of the Johnny Carson orchestra. Do yourself a favor and watch these short vids, youre guitar life will be better for it. I'm grateful this was brought to my attention because I happened upon John playing a tune on facebook. I wish I could find more pics of Bucky w the Gretsch John joins him here and John just sharing what he does best, youre gonna love this. Its beautiful!
