So I posted this in the cellar but its more than just a normal rig rundown. He's got some great stories that accompany his gear that I found really interesting (Leslie West and his Les Paul Junior).

I was always surprised that he never got tapped to join the Eagles.

Interesting to hear a pro talk about volume problems and hearing himself while playing on stage. I guess it's not only us amateurs that experience this problem from time to time.

This
Wachtel and his wife Annie were arrested in 1998 on suspicion of possession of child pornography after illicit images were found on a computer they had in their home, also hard copies and duplicates of kiddie porn were found in the home. The case against Wachtel's wife was dismissed; Wachtel pleaded no contest and was placed on probation for three years.

The story
Guitarist Robert "Waddy" Wachtel, who has worked with Linda Ronstadt and Fleetwood Mac, was placed on three years' probation Thursday after pleading no contest to possession of child pornography.

Wachtel was ordered to make a $2,500 donation to Children of the Night, an agency that helps runaways. In addition, he must undergo six months' counseling with a psychologist.

A similar charge against Wachtel's wife, Annie, was dismissed at the request of prosecutors.

The district attorney's office said the illicit material was discovered after Wachtel took his computer to a shop for repairs.
That seems pretty light but who knows what they found.

I loved Waddy's playing with the Expensive Winos, who sounded more like the Stones, than the Stones.
He certainly is a tasteful player. I am very disturbed by the kiddy stuff though . . .
I wish I didnt hear that. Just, wow. :(
