Tony Iommi? Of Black Sabbath? He is missing part of a finger, and there is
a Sabbath album called "Volume 4". Today's hint isn't called "Volume 4"
but that's the closest thing I can think of.

We asked you all last week ............

Can any one name the guitarist that plays on 1 track of the box set
_instead_ of Pete???

Hint, he is not all there! (hint # 1)

Here are some more answers from over the weekend

No, It's not ol' Ichabod Crane formerly of The Horsemen. :->

 No Matt, the answer is _not_ Joe Walsh!

Alan you are 100% *wrong*! You wrote the following........................ 

>"As I recall (I've deleted the original query) the question was who
>played guitar on the first track on the box set." 

I have posted and re-posted the burning question *over & over*:


This means ONE track of the box set. I did not say _which_ disc or _what_

I just did. You answered the wrong question. Try again! :-)

Then, just when you though he understood, along comes more confused
thoughts from our old pal:From: Alan McKendree <AI.amck@mcc.com>

Wrong, wrong & wrong again. There is another guitarist who
plays on one of the tracks on the box set. It is _NOT_ Pete!
As far as I can tell, I think it is the only track _with_ a guitar on it that
is not played by Pete Townshend.

Cheryl, you are EXACTLY correct in your intrepretation!

>If that is indeed the case, I *still* am stumped.  Is it a trick question?
>it Milli Vanilli?  :^)
>OK -- a more serious guess:  could it be, Greg Allman?  (I don't know
>about him missing any digits, though).  John Fogerty?  

It's not Greg Allman or John Fogerty.

Here is a recap so far....

Can any one name the guitarist that plays on 1 track of the box set
_instead_ of Pete???

Hint, he is not all there! (hint # 1)

Hint, (Is it Jerry Garcia?) No but you are on the right track. Now think
about why you are on the right track.  Why is Jerry Garcia "not all
there?"(hint #2)

Not only is this mystery guitarist "not all there", his band is 
missing as well! (hint #3)

Now here is the new hint of the day............................... 

(hint #4)- The guitarist in question first recorded his part of the track in
question on his band's LP that has the same title as todays hint number.


Please post you answers to the list. <thewho@cisco.com> 

Good luck!!!
