Gunn-Truscinski Duo :: For Eddie Hazel

John Truscinski and Steve Gunn’s wistfully fried “For Eddie Hazel” closes the duo’s new album Soundkeeper, buzzing with amp noise as gorgeous riffs and steady cymbals fade into a shimmering reflection. As the guitarist explains, it was their attempt to pay tribute to one of history’s most ground-shaking soloists. “Because we’ve listened and talked about him so much, we figured it was time to dedicate something in his honor.”
