Hi,

Thanks for the info on VJ King Junior - He's a great little guitarist and if I could only play half as good i would be happy.

I have his CD 'Shadow of a Dream' and I think his playing is terrific.  I am not that keen on the producers added effects, we switched the CD to get away from the cracks and pops [webmaster's note: Mick is referring to the 50s simulation opening on track 04].  However this doesn't take anything away from VJ's playing.

I just wonder where he'll be in another 10 years - up there with Tommy I bet.  (Hope I can get to see him on Kerri-Anne on Monday.  Tell him I'll be watching).

 

Mick

Hello VJ,

Saw you on the Kerri Anne show yesterday, and I enjoyed your playing. Keep it up mate!  Glad your dreams came true!  I'm a Tommy fan too, and of course, a guitar player. Located in Sydney.

 

There was a lady in the USA you talked to in Tommy E's website chatroom, don't know if you still remember, but her name is Stephanie.  She wants me to congratulate you for her. :)

 

Anyway, keep playing!

 

Regards,

 

Edwin

Hi VJ, I live in the UK and heard about your music through the Tommy Emmanuel website.  I saw Tommy play here a few weeks ago, he was amazing and you seem set to be just as good.  As Tommy said " never give up " a talent like yours should be encouraged and nurtured.  Good luck in all you do, I'm sure you will achieve all your dreams if you continue to work hard.

 

With love from Sue

Hi, Sue! Thank you for your nice words - and I'll keep dreaming because I want to keep achieving. Yes, Tommy is truly amazing - and I felt very proud to be playing with him after all these years of hard work. Hope we get to meet you one day. VJ

Hi, VJ!. 

I received your CD, "Shadow of a Dream," and love every track.  I played it for my parents and they can't believe it's that sweet-faced little boy in the PR photo doing all that fancy picking.  Dad is a long-time Chet Atkins fan, and he knows good guitar playing when he hears it.  He is amazed at your level of musicianship, as am I.

 

I enjoyed our talk in Tommy Emmanuel's chat room.  I look forward to chatting with you again.  Maybe we can do it soon.  Just tell me what day and time is best for you, and I'll be there.

You're an inspiration and a genuine, great kid.  I'm glad you're taking your time growing up, having kid-fun while you can.  A full-time music career is waiting for you just around the corner, whenever you're ready to step into those "really big shoes."

 

c.g.p.??  I don't know...they may have to create a whole new category for you.   It'll be like, " Look out world, here comes VJ!"

 

Stephanie

Hello Miss Stephanie.  Pleased you enjoyed Shadow Of A Dream - I had a lot of fun recording it even though it was long time - or seemed a long time completing it.  It was fun talking to you on Tommy's chat forum - and look forward to talking again sometime. VJ

Hey VJ

I saw your great performance with Tommy E on the TV the other day - as usual your smile was wonderful and it filled my TV screen. Your playing gets better every time I see you perform.

It was good to see you and to be able to say to my mates that I am friends with a true TV star.  You are turning into a bit of ham too I noticed :) HaHaHa

Keep working hard and remember that "Luck is when preparation meets opportunity! "

We are proud of you VJ, keep going the way you are and success will be yours.

It's hard to believe that one so young has so much talent on the guitar.  I know your parents are proud of you, and I don't blame them. You've got what it takes, so keep it up and don't get sidelined along the way. Remember, the music is more important than the fame.

Hello Mr Pickering!  I am very honored to have your remarks posted to my website. My dad often speaks about you and the rest of the Crickets.

Your music is making me cry right now.  Sorry for blubbering like an old woman [I'm only 48 :) not so old yet!].

Your dad emailed me about the Conservatorium in 2004.  I'm so proud of you.  I'm at university working on a music business degree to combine with my journalism degree, and this semester I'm doing the music theory thing, learning to play piano and guitar by standard notation and will be composing soon. ( I use my black VJ guitar pic for good luck.) It's hard but fun.  Macroeconomics and business?  Not so fun. 

I would love to hear from you sometime.  No time for the chat rooms now I'm back in school.  Jazz and blues improvisation knocks my socks off, and Tommy E does it without removing the shoes!  You sound brilliant yourself, and I felt my socks slipping off as I was listening.  By high school-end, you'll be unbeatable.

Happy journeying, VJ....

I've been listening to guitar music for quite a while now.  My interest keyed on Duane Eddy, The Fireballs, The Ventures, The Shadows to name a few of the earlier instrumental bands.  I've seen Zoe McCulloch a few times from England as well.  I must say you are quite talented -  very impressive.  Keep going, it's hard to believe you are so young.  A very classy and distinctive style.

As longtime friends of your mom and dad, I just wanted to send congratulations from us (my husband Roger too) to you for the wonderful opportunity you must have experienced being invited to be a guest for the Tommy E surprise. And, your first plane ride. How exciting!! Hope you can visit the States soon so we can meet you. I don't think we will have the opportunity to visit Australia again as we do most of our traveling in the US now. It has been very cold here in the state of Ohio this winter, so I must order a VJ CD to add some cheer listening to your talented guitar playing. And, with such feeling I must add.

In Harmony,

G'day, Chickie Dee!   The honour was for me to be on the same stage as BOTH Tommy and Phil was something I will  treasure for ever. And that it should be on a show like This Is Your Life - AND at Jupiters  - AND with people I've only heard my dad talk about ...like Col Joye, Nathan Cavaleri, and Troy Cassar-Daley - well... what can I say to describe what I can't possibly describe.  Thanks, Dee, for the part you too have played in helping me - VJ

Hello,

I just came across your site. The reason I found it, was, I am putting on a show with Tommy Emmanuel next month. I met Tommy a few times now, mostly on tours with Bill Wyman. My friend Albert Lee was also with them. Nice band. Anyway, I just love Shadows stuff and always have. I have been lucky enough to meet all the old Shads and some of the new boys too!

I met Hank in Perth WA and in the UK his son Ben is a great player and guy. In fact all the old Shads are great.

Keep up the good work and get others to try some Shads Tunes. They are a good base for leaning the guitar.

Well done

Phil Hadler.

That must be Phil from the old Rock a Beats .... hey, man... nice of you to say hello.  Please say hi to Tommy when you see him next month - and tell him that I miss his not being here. I probably won't see him until next year when he visits us again.  Shadows tunes... well, I probably wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for Shadows tunes.  C'ya!  VJ

I spoke to your dad last night Sunday 29th and I have sent some posters to him today the 1st March, hope you like them. 

My family and I all looked at your website.  I found it very interesting and your family should be proud. We wish you all the best in the future.

G'day Darcy - yes, I remember you well. You are Tommy's brother.  We had a great night didn't we - and how exciting was it surprising Tommy.  It was really fun.  I can't wait to see it on the television.   The whole thing was a big buzz.  I got to fly in a plane too. And everybody seemed to have a good time.  Thank you for the posters you are sending. Can't wait to see them! I'll let you know when they come. Bye!  VJ

I had to send you this second bit of my letter.  I lived in a home full of music, and I also played guitar and drums a little myself - but when our dad died I decided that I did not want a musical career.  I was only 7 years and 80 days old.  Please be careful in the music industry it can be unkind, but if you play your cards right it will give you the highest of highs.  May good luck follow you with whatever you choose to do.  Tommy's advice to you was well thought out and believe you me he is speaking from experience.  It's all up to you now.  Say hello to your family for me.

Love from

Darcy Emmanuel, Michelle, Gemma & Sarah

Hi there,

 

You may not remember me... I am the School Band Director at Samuel Gilbert Public School.  I would like to congratulate you on getting a place at the Con High School.  It is truly a unique school, as you are no doubt aware, one that can offer an experience second to none. How do I know? It was my high school too.

 

We recently had our High School Reunion with class mates of 20 years ago (we finished Year 12 in 1984) - it was great to catch up with old friends to swap stories and remember our days at the Con. We all enjoyed our time very much and believe that we were very fortunate to be given the opportunity to be educated in such a way.  I hope your days at the Con will be as memorable as ours....

 

A really great site too - I look forward to following your progress at the Con -  All the best

Except that with the travel to the city and back each day it is very tiring. Pleased you enjoyed the website, and will keep the pages updated so from time to time everyone can catch up with what is happening. All the best to my teachers at Samuel Gilbert... I miss them especially Mrs Phillips... please say hello from me."  - VJ

Hopefully there will be more to come :) " - Victor James Jr

Love the edge on Bunt; lovely: too short - always leave 'em wanting more?. Great tone.

Check out leftie Ollie Halsall w/ Mick Patto's late '60s/early '70s outfit from Lincoln - PATTO.  Especially solo on Hold Me Back and intro/outro on Hold Your Fire - incidentally, Ollie did all of the MacCartney-type stuff with the Ruttles and PATTO's drummer was an actual Ruttle - [ask your Dad!])  Used to see them in a dive off Wardour St. in Soho c. 1970 - all sorts would drop by: they played Mondays/ Tuesdays so working musos would get a chance to watch; Harrison was in there one night, Pete Moon regularly dropped by. Ollie played xylanphone and guitar.  Very wild but very good.  Thought also that you'd enjoy Jesse Ed Davis playing Six Days on the Road with Taj Mahal - also from that period.  Spare Strat - right up your alley. You may know this stuff - if not, enjoy. 

Best wishes

VJ King Jr | Daniel Coffey | personalised guitar pick

"Nice to hear from you, Daniel... and thanks for the information which I will check into for sure.  Dad mentioned that Ollie played drums before he took up guitar. I'd like to have a go at the drums one day, too. Yeah, I like that 'edge' we got out of doing Bunt and I'm looking forward to re-recording it again for my next album. We are also thinking about extending the solo a few more bars."  - VJ Jr

Hi VJ,

I stumbled across your website by accident, boy was I pleased to hear such talent, I shall be looking out for any appearances you make in the UK.  I've been playing the guitar for about 40 years (since I was fourteen) and it took me several years to get to your standard, it's nice to hear someone putting feeling into their playing rather than just playing notes, it makes the world of difference as I'm sure you'll agree.  Anyway, good luck for the future (as if you need it !)

Best Wishes Kevin

Hey, good work, it totally amazes me when young people are bitten by the blues bug, as i was 27 when it bit me listening to SRV music.  A c/d that you absolutely must check out is Doyle Bramhall ll -- "Welcome", which came out in 2002 and is electric blues rock and soul blended seemlessly. Doyle Bramhall ll is currently on tour playing guitar with Eric Clapton and his songs are played by Eric and BB King, and his father ( Doyle Bramhall snr ) was writer and co-writer of some of SRV 's songs.  A few of his songs from "Welcome" have featured on teen movies and he used to play with SRV's band after his death.  All this and he is only in his mid 30's.  Now with all the links to Stevie, he definitely is NOT a SRV clone, he has his own style and sense of melody and grace and is well worth a look.

Keep the passion.

I'm BMI songwriter/music columnist Jordan Lee from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. I'd love to hear what Tommy Emmanuel could do with one of my guitar classics - 'Sound Of My Guitar'- my current top-seller via/digital download at Apple iTunes. It features the magnificent acoustic guitar of Sam Pacetti and vocals by Miss Judy Hall, performed flawlessly. But a purely Instrumental-only version of the tune is still yet to come. I have a massive collection of instrumental guitar music by the best names in the business many of whom I've interviewed (Chet Atkins & the great Phil Keaggy among the lot) but I don't believe there's a better guitar player alive than Tommy Emmanuel, whom not having met, I enthusiastically admire.

Hi VJ ... haven't seen you for a while.  I hope school, sport and music are going well.  Mate - I have not forgotten you, I've just been really busy with family and with business infrastructure.  Work is progressing on your axe - a little difficulty in obtaining suitable rosewood, but as you know "never give up".  Speaking of such the 12-string semi-acc. prototype is finally complete - and "blow me down", the thing works.  In fact it plays beautifully - beyond my expectations.

Hopefully we'll catch up soon and you can give it a real good workout. Till then, be good, stay well and keep practicing [I've doubled my practice hours so lookout!]

Cheers, Marty.

Great to see you guys on Tuesday night and catch up with all the news. Hope you enjoyed the show.  I thought The Atlantics played a great set and Chris Isaak was a real surprise for me. Didn't realise previously how good he is.  Looking forward to TIYL next week with VCR ready to roll.  Hoping to see you for a barbecue and/or jam real soon. Take care.

Best wishes from both of us here at The Glen.

"The Atlantics were the main reason we were there.  Great band - just disappointed at the sound mix and volume/presence.  Straining one's ear to hear a group with such a (normally) 'big' sound was a new experience.  Maybe it had something to do with our centre-right seating.  Yes, Isaak was a surprise package - and his musicians impressive.  Boring to watch on video, but very engaging live. 

A few pressing tasks to complete and the boys will be over for that BBQ - just the thought of it and the mouth waters ... did I hear somebody mention Krispy Kremes!" - (an envious) WebMaster

"Greetings from The Glen to all at Werrington Forest.  In some ways the screening itself will be a bit of an anti-climax having been 'taped' over 8 months ago now.  The memories, however, remain vivid. Being present in such an intimate setting where so many of Tommy's dearest friends and family came together to pay tribute to one of Australia's greatest sons was a delightful and moving experience.  Much of the day preceding Phil and Tommy's final performance for that 45th Anniversary Tour was taken up with rehearsals conducted within a climate of strict secrecy and governed by stealth - excitement and tensions building hour by hour in the lead up to the eventual 'big surprise' at the end of the show, filmed in front of an ecstatic and equally surprised Jupiters packed house.  Then the private cocktail party that followed (Thanks, Nine Network & Jupiters!) taking us into the eerie silence of the very small hours of the morning after. How proud VJ Jr and I both were - and honoured - to have been invited by the Nine Network (Producer, Andrew Rodgers) to be present (and in VJ Jr's case, participate) among such a grand assembled company." - VJ Sr

Hi VJ, I think you are really good. My Mummy and I watched you on TV a few weeks back and I think you are cool. My sister broke a guitar in our local shop and Mummy had to buy it so I hope I will get it for a Christmas present. She was pretty mad at Sarah. I am four years old now, nearly catching up to you. Going to have a look at Pip's website now.

Hi VJ.  You may not remember me but I remember you. I was speaking to Rachel the other day and she gave me your web site address. You've been very busy by the look of things, congratulations on what you've achieved so far and keep going. I hope to come to another one of your shows when I come back to Australia. I got married to Kerri Dell (don't know if you know her, but she remembers you) in July of this year and we live in London at the moment. Maybe we'll see you over here if you do a tour, who knows?? I had been living in Munich, Germany for the past two and a half years. This part of the world (Austria, southern Germany, Switzerland) is really unbelievably beautiful. If you ever get the chance to travel here or even live here for a while like I did, definitely take it. Anyway, I'll sign off here and say good bye for now.  John Phipps

Hi VJ

Just accidently found your site and love the background "Aubrey" from Slipstream. I'm gonna check my local music shop to see if it's available. If not, where can we get it..? Also, I don't suppose you have TABs for your music..? If you visit Perth, please let me know.

Meantime - thanks for the sounds of Aubrey. Cheers

 

"Thanks for your message, Grenville, and we're glad you found us.  Slipstream is sold out and unlikely to be re-pressed.  However, some tracks will find their way onto the next full 12-track release we hope to record early in 2006 so will keep Aubrey in mind. It's a great tune and I enjoyed playing it.

 

Perth is a possibility next year for a visit. We are in preliminary discussions with Phil Emmanuel hoping that, with such a large Shadows following in Perth, we might be able to team up and tour there together." - VJ

I have always liked Johnny Cash but after watching walk the line i have gotten a better feeling of what he went through. He is now my hero. I have looked up a lot of stuff about him and I can now say I know more about him than anyone in my school. Johnny was a great man.

VJ, your music & talent is truly awesome! In case your need to know how/where I found you - c/net's Download.com. I was looking for some decent 'hip-hop' music for my granddaughter (age 8) who takes dance lessons in hip-hop, tap, jazz & ballet. She listened to the 4 samples & fell in love with your music! So, I am going to Barnes & Noble to buy a CD if they have it, but if not, will ask them to order it.

You would be a big hit here in Athens, Georgia (USA), home to University of Georgia & some major bands (ex: R.E.M.). Your booking agent should be able to schedule you for a tour of live concerts at universities. Students will love you & THEY are major consumers of all kinds of music.

Best of luck!

Hi VJ,

I saw you video & WAS BLOWN AWAY!  I am all alone when I was watching your clip & I actually clapped at the end of you playing! Wow!  I'm a die-hard Shadows Fan & was playing Shadows numbers since 1966 still playing them in 2007 though Shads' numbers ain't popular here.

Seeing such a young person playing one of my favourite Shads' tunes so well that I came away not knowing whether I am completely inspired or I am being totally depressed. Congratulations!

BTW, you have competition too. There's a little girl in Japan who started at age 5 (she's now 8 or 9!) by the name of Chicchi (Check YouTube).  The Mosrite guitar she plays with is almost taller than her & she plays The Venture's numbers that had Nokie Edwards (Venture's Lead) floored! when he jammed with her on stage.

Best wishes from California.
