Is Bob back to playing a Fender Strat, rather than the metallic looking guitar he had in 2011?

It's the one this guy made him out of wood from the Hotel Chelsea, where he used to live in the 60s.

Has anyone actually seen Bob use the tremelo on this guitar? I've never seen him do so in the videos...

I've seen him use it only once, in Sursee last summer. He seemed to have fun with that..

Yes, that is the only time I ever recall seeing that. He was having fun with the funny sounds, but it seemed like a spur of the moment thing.

Nah... just wait until he puts his fingers to the fret board and strings... like a chorus of heavenly angels with beautiful, perfect harmony. :D

no, his organ playing is that good though! (he does better vocally when on keyboards or on nothing)

i think simple twist of fate has run it's course. i'm having trouble following the plot twists now. when this version started though, it was the cats meow. and his soloing in it is usually quite touching.

^I am standing on a different side of the fence. I prefer Bob's guitar playing, even his leads, to anything he does on the organ. His soloing isn't as bad as some would have us to believe.

horrendous... the lead guitar playing... just plain BAD hahaha

Listen to Tampa in 2010 the solos on stuck inside of mobile... hahahaha he had my cringing and laughing throughout each guitar solo...

and troub... I think his organ playing is pretty bad too.... but it's better than that lead guitar...

however... I freaking love his growling voice.... just love it and people think I'm crazy for that... so it really is all in what you like, isn't it?

i've always thought that bob was a better pianist than guitarist, but sometimes the keyboard at his shows is so loud in the mix that i prefer watching him with the guitar, doing subtle things, like in simple twist of fate.

I've never been able to get the Tampa 2010 show to verify Milkcow's observation which means I'm still skeptical... I can't imagine Bob being brilliantly vituoso night after night for over 20 years and suddenly one night losing his ability to play a decent solo. It was probably a problem with the acoustics in the auditorium or more likely a problem with the sound system. I was having problems with my amp last night and several times it sounded pretty bad, like I didn't know how to play or was playing the wrong chords and notes. If Bob's amp malfunctioned in the middle of the song it would give the illusion he wasn't on top of his game.

And let me be the first to say, it sucks when that happens.

You're joking, right? Bob played some enjoyable threenotesolos in the late 90s but since about 10 years his left hand is less and less able to really hit notes that are somewhat connected to what the band is playing. There was a clip some days ago: during RDW he suddenly played three "correct" notes (over and over again) and the crowd freaked out because that does not happen very often these days anymore. I still love seeing him on stage but his guitarplaying is going from bad to worse. Strangely enough, I usually enjoy Simple Twist Of Fate, here it seems to be easier for him to play along with the band.
