Patrice Meyer/John Etheridge June 5/2008 Triton, Paris, France

listen to "Etika"




Avec JeanLuc Ponthieux, basse JB Cortot, batterie


I was 17 when I saw John Etheridge for the first time with Soft Machine, in Festival d'Orange, France in 1975. He was so good that during the whole show I thought he was Allan Holdsworth, who just left the band after "Bundles" was released.  Inviting this older brother was a huge pleasure. We played some tunes of ours, a cover (Hope) from godfather Mahavishnu (John was also influenced by McLaughlin. Remember : Soft Machine toured along with Mahavishnu Orchestra in 75, and with Shakti in 76)

And of course covers from Soft Machine "Softs" (released in 76) : Song for Aeolus, Tales of Taliesin, and John's beautiful piece: Etika.

Guitar hero attitude was assumed, and lots of notes have been played.
