Default Shawn Lane

FF to 1:45 to avoid the annoying DJ? Club Owner? WGAF!



Wondering what you think Frown.

Shawn Lane, Jonas Hellborg & Jeff Sipe = What most Fusion fans would now label as a Supergroup.

Love everything they ever did but Personae, Time Is The Enemy & Temporal Analogues Of Paradise are some of my favourite records of all time.

Rip Lane.

Some great music but a terrible, terrible recording.

True story: First exposure to Lane was listening to this while driving. Rice with the Angels solo happens and I had to pull over because I was hyperventilating.

Solo starts at 0:30



I ran a Shawn Lane tribute forum for about 8 years. I've spoken with his mom, daughter, and his best friend (a few dozen times). Shawn was the very definition of a savant. Never drove a car, couldn't balance a checkbook, and lived most of his adult life with his grandmother.

Yet the guy could beautifully meld Hendrix, Coltrane, and Ali Khan, all while going 200 MPH.

Shawn test driving a strat:

Watched about 10 minutes (after skipping the DJ). Kind of my same thoughts on Lane as usual: fine playing but the overall package doesn't do anything for me. There are moments where the drummer will do fills and they start to touch on something great before becoming more grounded to its detriment. I thought that the bassist could've been replaced with someone who's just as fast but also interesting. Let me know if that video evolves in a big way, but I'm still lukewarm on Lane.

Do you see a big separation between him and Holdsworth?

Shawn was the reincarnate of the Dasa's.

He was treated like a God when they toured India.

Well Holdsworth does have some of the same pitfalls in his solo work but it's a little less direct. I've never heard Lane in a context like Bundles where it's more...democratic amongst the musicians. I see what you mean though.

I'm guessing that Holdsworth was also a big figure for Lane.

When Lane started out his goal was to blend Holdsworth, DiMeola, McLaughlin, and Steve Morse.

Holdsworth was devastated when Shawn passed and even signed up to my forum to post his condolences.

You are simply the most pretentious snot I've ever encountered in my soon to be 58 years.

Jonas Hellborg is a Swedish bass guitarist. He has collaborated with John McLaughlin, Ustad Sultan Khan, Fazal Qureshi, Bill Laswell, Shawn Lane, Jens Johansson, Anders Johansson, Ginger Baker, Michael Shrieve, V. Selvaganesh, Jeff Sipe, Mattias IA Eklundh, Public Image Ltd, and Buckethead.


But he's not worthy of Frowny so all's for naught.
