Just found the board over New Years weekend while researching online preparing to *sniff* sell my Resurrection Bolt.
My name is David Keith, I currently live in Stuart, FL which is on the east coast just north of West Palm Beach. Started playing in college in the mid 1980s. First GD show June 6 1991 at Deer Creek, 10th row directly in front of Jerry. Changed my life forever, wasn't even a fan before that day. Went to 25 shows up to the final run at Soldier Field in 1995. Going to Weir/Wasserman tonight in Ft Lauderdale.
Been playing in what are essentially GD cover bands for about the last 14 years; been fortunate enough to open for Dark Star Orchestra, Jefferson Starship, and even JGB but of course Jerry was already gone by that point.
Currently doing solo acoustic stuff here in FL and also just started a new band called BearFoot, which is a combo play on my stage name Barefoot Dave and the GD dancing bear. We do mostly GD and JGB stuff as much as we can get away with, and add in Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Neil Young, etc. as needed to fill in the gaps.
My current rig for the band consists of
Guitar (see below) --> Zen Drive --> A/B switch --> Line 6 Multi Effect Pedal --> Dr. Z MAZ 18 Combo (or 1980 Fender Super Champ for small rooms)
the A/B switch is used to bypass the effect pedal completely and go straight into 2nd input on Dr. Z
Line 6 Pedal is used for Mutron, chorus, compression, delay, and Leslie effects.
