And the Gibson is just great. Like the ES295 when he played with the Honeydrippers.
Go Cat!

He has a Gibson 295 on the cover of Original Cool. On the record it sounds like he's using a Gretsch?!

Probably.
I think he never recorded with the ES295.
In Holland on tv he once played (playback) a hollowbody Ibanez....

It's obviously The Brian doing his "Human Beat-Box" thing that was all the rage back in the day.

Yes, I took this photo. July 2, 1995, Johnny M's 801 in San Diego - which is now the Hard Rock Cafe.

From http://hoodoovoodoolounge.darkbb.com/all-things-setzer-f1/25-years-of-love-t428.htm

"Shortly after we arrived [at a Hot Rod Lincoln show] one night, [guitarist Buzz Campbell] came over to us as we were settling in and said conspiratorially, "Brian Setzer is coming to the show tonight. He's in town to buy a car. I wanted to let you know so you guys are ready for it and don't freak out or anything. Save him a couple seats with you, okay?" Uh, okay! Was this for real?? Before long, Brian and his wife at the time did indeed come in. The bar was packed, but I don't think many people realized who had just walked in. Buzz led him to our table and made the introductions, and we found ourselves spending the entire evening with Brian Setzer. We chatted the whole time, about cars and music and acting (the boyfriend was a drummer and an aspiring actor). Brian and the boyfriend shared a beer, and Brian took a couple drags off the boyfriend's Lucky Strike cigarette (the butt of which he may well still own). Brian and I danced a couple songs, and I kept thinking, "is this really happening?" Through the course of the night Brian and the boyfriend both sat in with HRL, and when Brian was onstage the boyfriend and I would dance. Later in the evening when Brian was asking for requests, I shouted out "Fishnet Stockings!," my favorite Cats song at the time. He turned to the band and said "do you guys even know that song?" Of course! And away they went. I couldn't believe it, Brian Setzer was playing songs because I asked for them!

People had finally realized the Stray Cat was in the house, and lots of folks came up to talk to him. He was kind and friendly to every single one, even the drunk annoying guy who wanted to ask him over and over again about "Crazy Mixed Up Kid." It was one hell of a night, and of course we had no intention of leaving the club before Brian did. By end of the last set the bar was very nearly empty, but Brian was still amped. He'd turn to my boyfriend and say, "let's go fan the band!" They'd run over to the stage and take off their shirts and wave them at the band, telling them how on fire they were. It was undoubtedly one of the best shows Hot Rod Lincoln ever put on, with feedback like that from the Stray Cat. When they finally kicked us out and Brian and his wife went home with Buzz, we stood in the parking lot for probably a half hour and relived the entire thing, with lots of wide grins and "oh my god! Can you believe that just happened?!" We were walking on air for days.

Not long after, Hot Rod Lincoln released a CD called "Blue Cafe" produced by Lee Rocker, with the title track written by Brian Setzer. It is said that our night at the bar was the inspiration to the song. (Read about it here and here.) As for "that chick I was with all night drinkin'" mentioned in the lyrics, there were only two chicks at the table that night, me and his wife. I like to think that was me in the song, but she's probably just made up for the tune!!"


(Sorry for taking so long to post this. My mom's in the hospital. I'm getting really f%&king sick of those places. Your love and good thoughts sent her way would be most appreciated by us both.)

Here's another from my Facebook albums:


Aug 8, 1998, interviewing Brian for my radio show - which was named Jump Jive an' Wail! - well before I knew the BSO had recorded the song.
