Dear subscribers,

One year has passed since we published our last issue in last December,
and we received many inquiries to ask when the next issue was available 
from our serious readers during last one year.  We have to apologize to 
each of our subscribers for the delay because of Editor's family affairs. 

So many things happened to us during last one year; my wife's mother 
had a liver cancer surgery at the end of last year and had another surgery 
again in this past February, and our 19 son (19) married in this May when 
we flew to Guam, the US territory in the Pacific Ocean, where we had a
joyful wedding ceremony and party. After returning from the wedding tour, 
my wife's mother had a third surgery for her liver cancer. After all, she 
passed away on October 5th in peace. And now here's a good news after the 
deep sorrow. Our grandson was born on December 4th. ( I did never expect
to be a grandfather at the age of 46 !!!)

Anyway, please understand why we couldn't find a spare time to work for 
the new issue during last year. But finally we can present you our new 
issue for a season's greeting. Hope you enjoy this issue. 

Thank you so much for your great interest and patience.
Special thanks to Sandy Rothman for his continuous encouragement.

       Have a joyful happy pickin' holiday season !

Dear Etsuo,

I have just recieved my copy of the new Clarence video.
Tremendous. I have even e-mailed John Delgatto to thank 
him for making such a thing available to people who never
had the chance of seeing Clarence perform live.

I find it very funny when Bob Baxter asks Clarence any
questions only for Clarence to reply without really repling. 
Underneath it all, you can see Clarence's personality and 
sense of humour shine.

Do you remember discussing with me about the Noble guitar
Clarence played. You were right. It sounded beautiful on the 
video,but then again, that was probably due to Clarence. If only 
Bob Baxter could have left Clarence to play by himself, or turn 
his mic off.

Dear Etsuo,

just found CW chronicles on the net and had a great time reading them. 
I'm a bluegrass picker from Sydney, Australia who loves the acoustic 
picking of Clarence. Listening to 'Livin' in the Past' a few years after 
starting to pick just did it for me. And the Bluegrass Masters' book on 
Clarence White by Russ Barenberg was magical. A funny story..someone 
in the chronicles said something about gemini guitar pickers being careful 
with guitars and cars..several years ago driving home from a nightclub, 
I (b.13/6/62) had a car crash that should have wiped me out at about 
the same time that a crazy girlfriend smashed my Martin D28 all over 
the house we were sharing. The guitar and car were both written off. The 
opinion on the guitar was that only the neck was salvagable, which 
ironically was the only thing I didn't like about it. I kept the guitar 
in pieces in the case until 6 months later it was wonderfully restored 
(at some cost!). I drive carefully now and the Martin is playing 
beautifully (with a lower action!).

Keep up the great Clarence work. I'm interested in Japan being so much 
into Bluegrass...I'd love to come over and pick in a few bars. If you 
have any info on bluegrass sessions over there I'd love to hear about it.

Mark Ellis
[From Sandy Rothman's letter]

Thanks for the forward from Mark Ellis in Australia. Speaking of astrology, 
his story is pretty amazing. He sounds like some Gemini guitar players 
I know (especially Evan Morgan, who can play so much like Clarence...). 
Interesting that he picked up on what I wrote about this earlier.

Hello Etsuo, 

I hope you and your family are doing fine.  We had a pretty rough January
here in terms of weather but I think the worst is now behind us. 

I wonder if you or any of your readers can help me with a CD I've been 
attempting to track down by Nashville guitarist Ray Flacke.  The CD is
Untitled Island and it was released on Intersound Records around 1991 
according to the All-Music Guide on the Internet. (They even have a
picture of it and track listing so it was obviously issued.) 

Ray of course, played with Ricky Skaggs and Marty Stuart and now is in 
Jamie Hartford's band.  He is one of my favorite guitar players so I'm quite 
frustrated at not being able to locate this release.  I'm sure it is out of 
print but if you know of anyone you might have a copy please let me know--
I'll pay a good price for a cassette tape. 

Hope you can help me out on this one.  Someone in Clarence White-land 
must know of this release. 

Your friend, 
[From Editor]

Dear Steve,  Sorry, but I haven't the CD which you are looking for. I just
only know his name.  
Hey, somebody on the net !  If you have it, please help Steve my friend in 
Illinois.   Thanks a lot for someone's help!

The following story is nothing to do with Clarence White.  Nonetheless, 
I dared to forward it to this list, because it was Campbell Coe who had 
promoted the Kentucky Colonels in Berkeley back in April of 1964.  So  
I just want to let each of our readers know about him.

Subject: Campbell Coe's guitar

From the time I first met Campbell, sometime around 1959 or 1960, his
principal axe was always a full-figured old Vega guitar -- a mint condition
electric-acoustic carved-top cutaway from the 1940s with a maple-brown
sunburst finish and triple pickups with all three control knobs mounted in
the tailpiece. It was just like Campbell to play a lesser-known brand of
guitar, and although I don't have the model name or serial number of the
big Vega at this time, it certainly didn't spare any accessory or luxury of
its day and was surely the top of the company's line.

http://www.river.org/~esoft/sandy/sandy1.jpg -- 1965 photo by Campbell
Coe of me and Jody Stecher with Campbell's Vega guitar and Gibson F-4

In years to come I developed a unique history with Campbell's pride and
joy. Traveling to the Bay Area on a visit from Ohio where I was living in
1971, I decided to rent a car at the airport and cruise Telegraph before
heading to my mother's apartment in San Leandro. I knew Campbell wasn't in
town -- his father had passed away and he had gone to Seattle for the
funeral -- but for old times' sake I walked north on Telegraph Avenue from
Dwight Way on the east side, as though headed for Campus Music Shop. As I
approached the Haste corner, where the old Berkeley Inn stood, I saw a
street kid playing a guitar in front of the Inn. There was certainly
nothing at all unusual about this scene, except for one thing: the kid was
playing Campbell's Vega.

This would have been freaky enough on a normal day, but I had just flown in
from Ohio and an hour earlier. To see Campbell's elegant Vega electric, its
original brown case open in front of it, on the streets of Berkeley was "a
bad flash." Instinctively, I immediately dashed up to Campbell's apartment
a block away, where I could see signs of forced entry at the doorway. I
called the Berkeley Police, stressing the rarity of the stolen instrument
in telling my story. They said to have the guitar's owner call them. I
called the number I had for Campbell's brother in Seattle, luckily reached
him and told him the story, and gave him the information on the officer to
contact. Then I went back to where the kid was (hoping he hadn't moved and
he hadn't) and listened awhile. I talked to him about the guitar and asked
if he would sell it. He said he might, and I said I'd come back later. I
talked to the police again -- Campbell had already called them -- and they
set up a sting operation to buy the guitar from the kid. I told them where
it was, described the easily-identifiable guitar, and, amazingly, they
succeeded. I didn't watch it happen, but when I called them again they said
they had the instrument in their custody and would release it to its owner,
who couldn't leave Seattle immediately but would be down in a few days.

I visited Campbell after his reunion with the Vega, which had been taken
from his apartment along with his old Speed Graflex camera and some other
valuable photographic gear. (Some years earlier he had sold his only other
longtime guitar, an original Selmer Maccaferri like the one Django
Reinhardt played -- said to have once been owned by Django's brother Joseph
-- to Bob Wilson, so it was spared from this robbery.) Following this,
Campbell did acquire a second guitar for his everyday use, a fairly
ordinary 1960s Gibson double-cutaway electric which is pictured in a
self-timed Polaroid snapshot he took of us and a couple I took, including
one of him playing "double guitar," the next time I was in the Bay Area a
year later in 1972. Sad to say, there was a second robbery at Campbell's
apartment before he finally relocated back to Seattle in the early 1980s --
I think this may have happened in 1976 -- and the Vega was stolen for good,
along with other items including the Gibson guitar and his venerable old
Ampex 601 tape recorder, with which he'd recorded Clarence and Roland
White, Sonny Osborne, and many other people over the years.

http://www.river.org/~esoft/sandy/sandy4.jpg  photo by Sandy Rothman

In the nearly 20 years that Campbell has been living back in Seattle, I
don't think he has owned a guitar the entire time. I visited him once, in 
July of 1996, and didn't see any sign of an instrument at his house. He 
told me that his guitar interest had been rekindled by someone there who'd 
loaned him a stack of "Fingerstyle Guitar" magazines. He seemed amazed at 
the existence of  the publication and prolifery of interest in the kind of 
country-jazz guitar stylings which had been his specialty for many years.

It sounded like Campbell had the urge to play again, at the age of 75, and
I was overtaken with a desire to send him a guitar. "Mail a guitar to
Campbell Coe" -- what an idea! Eccentricities notwithstanding, he was
responsible for putting instruments into (and occasionally taking them out
of) the hands of so many of us during the 1960s that it only seemed right
to somehow return the favor.

Recently I found a Vega guitar from the 1940s listed for sale at Bernunzio
Instruments in New York for $1600. They were nice enough to email some
jpegs of the guitar, a big, blond, two-pickup model that wouldn't quite fit
Campbell's understated taste, in my opinion. Of course it would be
fantastic to locate Campbell's old guitar -- I'd try to buy it if at all
possible -- but short of that dream, my idea is to find something
appropriate and affordable and ship it up.

This is where the idea stands now. If anyone receiving this mailing has any
thoughts or would like to participate in any way, please let me know.
Thanks, and special thanks to Earl Crabb for scanning and preserving the
accompanying snapshots.

Dear Eito-san,

Just a quick note to let you know that there's an interesting story in a
foreign book which I just bought yesterday (although you already might have 
known that book).

The title of the book is "LIFE ON THE ROAD - The Incredible Rock 'n Roll
Adventure of Dinky Dawson" (ISBN 0-8230-8344-6) written by Dinky Dawson,
published by Billboard Books.
Dinky Dawson was a former roadie of Fleetwood Mac, then he became a
roadie of the Byrds. He wrote about the days during hehad  worked for the
Byrds. He is a British, so he married an American lady who was a Japanese
American named Nancy to keep on working in the United States. This
Japanese American lady was an old aquaintance of Clarence White. He
arranged their marriage.

Thinking of Clarence's tragic accident caused by a Japanese drunk woman
upon his friendly activity to a Japanese American aquaintance, I feel 
something so strange coincidence..... 

If you could contact Dinky & Nancy who seem to live in the East Coast,
you might be able to get new information about Clarence White from them.
However, their email or snail mail address is not mentioned in that book.
Hopefully some of the CWC subscribers may be able to help you to contact

Keep good work !

Hi Etsuo-

I know of three people I've met on the Internet who knew and played with
Clarence out in California. I urge you to contact these people by e-mail, 
tell them about yourself and "your destiny" (keeping Clarence's memory
alive) and you will most certainly get a friendly response from all three,
and more stories and memories to add to the CW Chronicles.

Mike Perlowin is a musician best-known for applying Classical music to 
the pedal steel guitar. He played bluegrass with Clarence in LA. His e-mail 
address is: mperlowin@aol.com

Herb Steiner is also a pedal steel player who has played with many people 
from Johnny Bush to Jerry Jeff Walker. He was also a member of  Linda 
Ronstadt's band, and worked with Clarence on the 'Home Grown/Hand 
Sown' album. And he also played bluegrass with Clarence and the Colonels 
before that.  He mentions Clarence on his homepage which is located at:
His e-mail address is: herbs10178@aol.com

Burrito Brothers. His e-mail address is: flyingb@aol.com

[John Beland's post]

Clarence White was one of my dear friends. When I was Ronstadt (in '69 
thru 72) our band, SWAMPWATER, ran with The Byrds. Gib Guilbeau, our 
fiddler & singer, was best friends with Clarence. In fact, Clarence's 
brother Eric was our first bass player. Anyway, Clarence was a huge 
influence on my playing, and I was always in awe of him. But he was also 
one of the funniest guys I had ever met. Practical joker to the max!
Now back then in L.A there were only four of us with BBENDERS at the 
time. Clarence, Bob Worford, Bernie Leadon, and myself. We all played in 
the same style..When Clarence was double booked or couldn't get back in 
town on time, he would have me sub for him.

One day Clarence calls me and asks if I would like to hang with him 
while he plays on this guy's session at Sunset Sound. "Sure", I say, and 
later that night Im cruisin down the Strip with Clarence (who drove like 
a madman)..We get to the studio and all the lights are low..booze and 
drugs and groupies are everywhere. And in walks... GRAM PARSONS, flanked 
by two tall lean biker chicks. The session was for a solo post-Burritos 
project for Gram. Anyway, I sat in the booth quietly and watched as the 
session proceeded well into the wee hours. After it was over and the 
musicians were packing up..Clarence brings me over to meet Gram..who by 
now is compleatly wiped out.

"Gram", says Clarence. "I want you to meet Linda's guitar player John 
Beland." Gram gives me a long stare..smiles and throws his arms around 
me and says in that unforgettable Georgia drawl..

"Hey John...you picked your goddamned ass off tonight." As he's sqeezing 
me I look behind him, and see Clarence with his eyes rolled in the air 
chuckling...I just said "Thanks, man"...   even though I had'nt played a lick 
all night, but was only a spectator in the booth!!!!!

An ironic meeting when you consider that ten years from that night I 
would take over leading The Burritos..like I still am today.
As for Clarence, we shared many a story. For a while we were all thick 
as thieves, Gib, myself, Gene Parsons & Clarence....what a great time 
that was to be in LA. We ruled...and we made plenty of great music. Some 
time, if I have'nt bored you guys already, I'll tell you some more stuff 
from those days. Thanks for listening..see ya later!

Hello, Etsuo!

Thank you very much for your personal message and the latest edition of CWC.  
I've been a fan of Clarence White since I first heard his magical guitar 
music coming from the Elektra album "New Dimensions In Banjo and Bluegrass" 
in 1964.  His playing was certainly the new dimension in bluegrass.  For me, 
a guitar player, he "stole the show" completely.  It was at that point that I 
realized that I would never be that good a guitar player!  But, at the same 
time, it was inspirational.

Well, I've gotta get back to work.  I'm editing a collection of writings 
about Bill Monroe, _The Bill Monroe Reader_, which will be published next 
year by the University of Illinois Press.  It's a full-time job, which I'm 
sure you'll understand with your publishing experience, but also a labor of 
love, right?  So I'm a little obsessed with it!  I hope to have some spare 
time soon to visit your homepage.  It's wonderful to know that it's all there.

Thanks again and again, Etsuo.

Holler if you need me.

Dear Etsuo:

In reference to Dan Little's request for MP3 recordings of Clarence.  The
whole matter of MP3 recordings on the internet is a hot topic.  The issues
of rights (in this case Clarence's) has yet to be fully resolved.  It was
one thing trading tapes (poor quality audio cassettes) among collectors and
musicians.  Putting material on the internet via MP3 without the regard of
the actual artist living or dead is another matter.

As a company that holds certain rights to many recordings including that of
Clarence White, this matter needs to be addressed and how best to serve the
artists and the company in light of the various written agreements between
both parties.  I am sure the lawyers are going or have already jumped in to
muddy the waters on the issue.

At this very moment, nothing can be done until who owns what and who will
get paid for such use is clarified.

In regards to any recordings of Clarence, there is also the issue of who
does have the original recordings of many of these live tapes.  Why put a
recording on the internet via MP3 if is a third or more generation removed
from the original?  Who owns the original?  Is Clarence's estate being
conpensated?  Or is this just a free market of exchange?

But, all these questions and more should be explored before anything can be
