Guitar Trouble (live) - Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers

Dude: Hey, DJ Caterina, tell me another one of your TCYR stories...

Me: Well, back in 1986, Tommy Conwell hired Rob Miller for the Young Rumblers and then put him on keyboards because, Tommy said, Rob was the better guitar player. 

Dude: Oh, come ON!!! 

Me: Yeah, interesting, right? But here's Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers live in 1990 playing Guitar Trouble with Rob Miller on lead guitar with Tommy. I just love the guitar duel going on here.


Me: Anyway, check it out, kids...
