BIlly Duffy Featured In Latest Vintage Guitar

Posted:

The Cult‘s Billy Duffy landed on the cover of July’s Vintage Guitar, in which he talks about his trusty Gretsch White Falcon and his band’s upcoming album, Choice of Weapon.

Duffy reminisced about the first Gretsch he ever owned, a double-cutaway stereo 1970′s White Falcon that he no longer has.

“I had to sell that one to get what I really wanted, which was the single-cutaway Falcon with the curved palm bar, which has a very different feel than a short-armed Bigsby.”

Duffy also confirmed that he is working with Gretsch on a signature White Falcon.

“They forensically analyzed my guitar – the ’70s Falcon I used on “She Sells Sanctuary,” with all its battle scars and whatnot, and they’re going to make something based on it,” he noted.

Watch Jane’s Addiction Making-of Video for “End to the Lies”

Posted:

Revolver magazine’s May/June issue includes an article on alt-rock legends Jane’s Addiction, accompanied by a photo of guitarist Dave Navarro in the studio playing a magnificent Gretsch White Falcon.

Navarro and the Gretsch can be seen in action in the video below, filmed as the band hit the studio to record “End To The Lies“. The cut will appear on The Great Escape Artist, Jane’s first studio record in eight years due out this August.

Of the track, Navarro told Spinner.com, “To me, it sounds like an updated Jane’s Addiction as it has the hypnotic repetitive nature of some of our early work combined with a modern approach.”
