Jimmy Dillon makes a guest appearance towards the end of
Secrets of the Jam Masters with Mark Karan…
Its a feature called the Sound Hound Lounge…
its all about killer tones and gear… check it out.
MALE: Welcome to MK Sound Lounge, a new feature.
This is the first time out. I’m going to be sitting
here with my buddy, Jimmy Dillon, and we’re just
going to be rapping about stuff: effects, guitars,
amps, parts, solos, sound, production, all the stuff
that is sound-oriented and music-oriented that coalesces
to make us all have a great handle on a song and make
it a record.
JIMMY: Yep, yep.
MALE: In the spirit of the overall product, we’re
jamming here. We’ve got nothing plotted out. We’re
just going to have a conversation and see what we
can get at.

MALE: Yeah, something like that. That worked in a
little idea that we talked about earlier, the idea
of a pedal tone. You know, as you might have noticed,

and I got on it like a dog on a bone and it stayed there
through all the changes.
Jimmy: We went from some sort of junk blues into kind

MALE: Exactly. It’s all very mutable. It’s all very mutable.
But dig it. Jimmy’s going to play the [unintelligible – 02:17]
again and I’m going to show you, this hangs.
So something that simple can actually be that effective,
you know? It’s pretty cool.
