"I've always been an insomniac. When I can't sleep at night, I go into the studio and record guitar solos, pulling on the vibrato bar with such frenzy that I break it off on occasion and part of it stays stuck inside the guitar until I have to extract it with a dentist's drill, or have to replace the whole tremolo block and tailpiece. I love bending strings and stretching notes to their limit, just short of snapping them off the neck.
"This is a guitar album, and I just did everything in one or two takes with my Fender Stratocaster, Deluxe Reverb Amplifier, and sometimes a Wah Wah pedal.
"The guitar is the star of this album. It talks and sings, and even cries. I gave the guitar total leeway to do whatever it wanted to do. I let it run wild. I don't think when I play. The guitar actually plays me." -- Jimmi Accardi
"Leo Fender smiles down when Jimmi plays." -- Jack Utley, DJ, WIMS Radio
