Laun Braithwaite

laun-bI was born in 1967 and exposed to my parent’s 50’s rock and roll records at an early age. I loved my Dad’s Bo Diddley and Buddy Holly records, and my Mom’s Ricky Nelson and Elvis records. By high school I had picked up the guitar and got in to the Stones and Chess Blues. In college I discovered Memphis Soul, and rediscovered Bakersfield Country.

I currently play on the weekends in a ’50’s and ’60’s cover band. My favorite guitar players are Keith Richards, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Steve Cropper, Bo Diddley, James Burton, Don Rich, Roy Nichols, and Poison Ivy. My favorite guitars are the Fender Tele and Strat, the Gibson Les Paul Custom, the Gretsch Duo Jet, the Gibson J-200, the Gretsch 6120, and the Rickenbacker 330/12.
