Henry Kaiser’s REQUIEM for DAVID LINDLEY on #neuguitars #blog #HenryKaiser #DavidLindley

“We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of David Lindley following a monthslong illness.”
David Lindley 3/21/1944 – 3/3/2023


David Perry Lindley (March 21, 1944 – March 3, 2023) was an American musician who founded the rock band El Rayo-X and worked with many other performers including Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Ry Cooder, Bonnie Raitt, Warren Zevon, Curtis Mayfield and Dolly Parton. He mastered such a wide variety of instruments that Acoustic Guitar magazine referred to him not as a multi-instrumentalist but instead as a “maxi-instrumentalist”. The majority of the instruments that Lindley played are string instruments, including violin, acoustic and electric guitar, upright and electric bass, banjo, mandolin, dobro, hardingfele, bouzouki, cittern, bağlama, gumbus, charango, cümbüş, oud and zither. He was the unparalleled master of the lap steel guitar in the rock music sphere, and an expert in Hawaiian-style slide guitar blues. Multi-instrumentalist Ben Harper acknowledges Lindley as an important influence.

Done! Thank you!
