Mood For A Day

April 8th, 2007

Steve Howe is not a name the general population knows overly well: he’s no Jimi Hendrix or Eddie Van Halen. But he is, none the less, one of the truly great guitarists of the rock pantheon. Adept in Jazz, fingerstyle and classical as well as rock, there is a huge number of guys my age who play classical as a direct result of “Mood For A Day.” The Los Angeles Quitar Quartet, in fact, did a flamenco variation of it called “Aire para un Dia,” on their 2004 CD “Guitar Heros.”

Howe’s band Yes was one of the biggest of the 70’s and still sell out medium sized venues whenever they tour, which is frequently.

Happy 60th birthday, Steve Howe. And on a personal note – thank you!
