DENNIS DIKEN OF THE SMITHEREENS-BACK OUT ON THE ROAD WITH DAVE DAVIES OF THE KINKS~

It was great to see that Dennis Diken of The Smithereens was back out on the road with Dave Davies of The Kinks. I was fortunate enough to see them live last year when they were in the area. That was the first round of these shows, and it is wonderful to see them continuing. Dennis used the 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14 for the show here, and has used his live in shows with The Smithereens. He is an amazing player, and like you will read everywhere always.....He is a great person as well. Link below to a live clip of his solo with The Smithereens, a link to a clip from the show in Milwaukee with Dave Davies, and some pics from the show. Special Thanks as always to the always helpful & congenial Brad Elvis (The Handcuffs, The Romantics) for the introduction...
