Rare, lost footage taken in December 1980 "Time"
Phil Keaggy (born Philip Tyler Keaggy, in Youngstown, Ohio on March 23, 1951 in a Catholic family) is an American acoustic and electric guitarist and vocalist who has released more than 50 albums and contributed to many more recordings in both the contemporary Christian music and mainstream markets. He is a seven-time recipient of the GMA Dove Award for Instrumental Album of the Year, and was twice nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Gospel Album. He has frequently been listed as one of the world's top-three "finger-style", as well as "finger-picking", guitarists by Guitar Player Magazine readers' polls.
"Besides being one of, if not the most talented guitarists ever, Phil is one of the nicest and most humble men you'd ever meet. I worked for a time at a little radio station in Orange County California when he came by with some record company folk for an album release event at the station. Phil took time out to roll on the floor and play with his young child right in the office, in the midst of the suits". Rusty Perez (From YouTube comment.)
Editor: I wrote one of my Ahava Love Letters (#16) in regards to Phil's classic song, "Disappointment - His Appointment". I have reprinted it here below. (1st printed Feb. 21,2011).
If you use the "Search Box" in the top right hand corner you will find a few other songs of Phil that I have included on this Blog.
