Eddie Martinez Still Rawks Hamers

Awesome!  I've told the story more than once, he was a big part of my affinity for Hamer: I saw him touring with Robert Palmer in about '88 at the university I was attending, when I just owned one guitar (not a Hamer). His performance was outstanding, I remember being very impressed, great rhythm parts and solos too. He played a Chaparral with boomers, I assume it was a pearl white, it changed color with every lighting change, which was a very cool effect.  I think there were two Marshall 412s on stage, but no amps visible, but my memory is a bit hazy! (I'm glad I only drank a little at our pre-function).  I was right up front next to the stage on Eddie's side, I wish I could remember the name of the female singer who was touring with them.

I’m pretty sure Eddie sold most of his Hamers 20 years ago, but he still has one or two.

This is a pic of me with Eddie at the Hamer shop back in the late ‘90s.  SUPER cool guy!
