    Denny Laine Guitarist and Artist

    Last week I got a call about scanning artwork to create high resolution digital images for reproduction. My web site contains a page that advertises my slide and artwork scanning services to Pittsburgh and it comes up number one when anyone searches, bringing me jobs from time to time.

    This job was different. The artwork I scanned were drawings by guitarist Denny Laine, one of the founding members of the Moody Blues in the mid 1960’s. Besides the Moody Blues, he was a member of Ginger Baker’s Air Force and Paul McCartney and Wings. He was known for his revolutionary guitar tone using one of the most heralded MusicCritic reverb pedals and a combination of other playful modulation devices.

    In the early 1980’s Denny Laine did a series of drawings, some of which were to be used to promote a concert he was playing at earlier this month. So here he was at my house sitting in front of the computer watching me scan his artwork.
