The Monty, Myles Goodwyn model guitar.

Posted By Myles Goodwyn on 23 Jun 2013

This is a one of a kind guitar that I had made by Brian Monty. The body is typical mahogany as is used in the making of Les Pauls and the fretboard is real ebony. The humbucker pickups are M.G./Tom Short customs that I have made for me. The middle pup is a Gibson single Read More...

Best wishes Calgary!

Posted By Myles Goodwyn on 22 Jun 2013

What a difference a week makes. We arrived in Calgary a week ago, the weather was fine, no problems and now this. It`s remarkable how things can go from normal to extraordinary overnight. Two have died. One person missing at this time. Terrible stuff…

Jerry on drums/ Jim in the shadows.

Posted By Myles Goodwyn on 20 Jun 2013

Jim Clench replaced Jim Henman on bass after our first album. Jim H. had decided the lifestyle was not for him. Smart guy that Jim. So I enlisted Clench. Since both bass players had the same first name, it made the transition amazingly simple. LOL Neither player would ever be thought of as a technical Read More...

We played two sold out shows at The Lido in Fort St John, B.C., April 1 and 2. It was at this beautiful , retro-style venu that we meet Roland who is a serious guitar collector. I forget how many signed guitars he said he has in his collection but there are many! An ex-roadie, Read More...

COMMENTING ON M.G. BLOG, EMAIL ADDRESS IS NO LONGER REQUIRED.

Posted By Myles Goodwyn on 18 Jun 2013

Morning, I noticed that this Blog was set up in such a way that supplying an email address was necessary in order to comment. I felt that asking for persons wishing to comment on my BLOG to give out their email address a bit intrusive and a turn off for some. And a wee bit to time consuming. It would be Read More...

Sour Grapes..

Posted By Myles Goodwyn on 17 Jun 2013

I received a message from a “big fan” of the band last night. He claims that he was at the show in Burlington. He also claimed to have all our records, goes to our concerts and is a devote supporter of the band and has been for years. Not any more apparently. This fan, let`s call him Read More...

Happy Fathers Day to me and youse guys!

Posted By Myles Goodwyn on 16 Jun 2013

It was great to get messages from my three kids this morning wishing me H.F.Day. I`m sitting in a hotel after a red-eye flight to Toronto and a limousine ride to Burlington. I`m tired and hungry and there`s no food in this fucking hotel. Dang! I`m told I can walk to one. Only takes 20 minutes. Anywho… Being on Read More...

Two guitars

Posted By Myles Goodwyn on 7 Apr 2013

These are two of my most cherished guitars. The one on the left is a Norma, the very first guitar I ever owned. Ever! The one on the right is my 1947 Southern Jumbo which has been my main guitar for writing songs for about forty years.
