|caffeine head||The bow|
Lotsa violin bow guitar-playing too! I remember trying this once in my youth. Somehow I knew it wouldn't go over, playing cover tunes for drinkers and dancers in rural Minnesota... anybody else use the violin bow on a guitar besides Jimmy Page?

I remember Nigel Tuffnel from Spinal Tap using a violin (not bow, but the instrument) during a solo once. It was in that fine documentary they made about the band. I believe he had problems keeping it in tune though.

Eddie Phillips, from Creation. They were a mid-60's British invasion band that, um, never really invaded. Anyway, he used a bow on a couple of recordings, pre-Page. Might've even influenced Page to do so.

Did he go on to be in Mighty Baby?
