Charlie is the definite psycho of the Pigs. He is a fan of
Michael Hedges as well as Kottke - thus the handle. HedgeHog
lives in St. Louis & works as a marketing guru for
Monsanto. In reality, he just seems to fly back & forth
from Asia & play golf at resorts (they actually pay
him for this). HedgeHog had it rough for TPC#1 in St.
Louis last year - he was the only non-smoker in the group.
His wife made him sleep in the garage each night he came
home that weekend.
Mr. Rogers has TABbed things like
"Jesus Maria", "Virtuoso", "Echoing Gilewitz" and others.
Regretfully so, it is probably some of the best, most
accurate TAB we have collectively. He plays 2 Taylors; a 555
12, and a 410 6. The 410 really surprised us in STL (it had
basically just come out) real nice for the bucks. He also
plays a Webber (which we still haven't figured out!).
HedgeHog beats the everlovin' crap out of his guitar while
playing ala Hedges. Sounds like he's playing the bongo's.
Anyway, Hedge has got a great ear for tunes & a real
smooth style. Plays a lot of his own tunes too that are
Only thing about Hedge is that he
"discovered" Kottke at about the That's What stage
and had no idea there were previous albums. When advised of
such & he finally heard Armadillo, he said it was crap.
In answer to the question on your mind; No, the bolt of
lightning just missed him.
