Phil Keaggy

Phil Keaggy is an excellent all-around guitarist who has been a part of the CCM scene for over two decades. Born and raised in Ohio in a Catholic family of ten, Keaggy always loved music and spent hours listening to such singers as Johnny Ray and Elvis Presley. He began imitating the latter as young as age four. Keaggy was also exposed to other kinds of music and became well versed in classical. His first guitar was a late-'50s Gretsch Anniversary model; at age ten his father bought him a Sears Silvertone, and by the end of fifth grade, he was playing in front of his entire school. Three years later, Keaggy was playing professionally with the Squires. He and his longtime friend, drummer John Sferra, founded Glass Harp in the late '60s when he was in the eleventh grade. They soon became known as one of the most innovative power trios around, even though they were never together long enough to break through commercially. They had a contract with Decca, toured the country several times, and had a growing base of devoted fans, many of whom were knocked out by Keaggy's lightning-fast guitar riffs and experimental sounds. At their pinnacle, Glass Harp was opening for such major acts as Iron Butterfly, Yes, Traffic and Chicago.

It was a lot of fame to be heaped upon such young musicians, and it being the late '60s, Keaggy was exposed to and partook of his share of drugs. His life changed dramatically on February 14, 1970. While lying in a hotel room suffering from a bad LSD trip, his parents were involved in a head-on auto crash back in Ohio. His mother died soon afterward, and this spawned a crisis for Keaggy that led to his becoming a born-again Christian. In the early '70s, Keaggy took to testifying before bewildered Glass Harp listeners after their concerts.

He left Glass Harp in 1972 and the following year recorded his first solo album, What a Day. He then spent many years working with a Christian fellowship and married. Since then, Keaggy has released well over thirty albums earning critical acclaim for both his virtuosity on guitar and his songwriting, which ranges from the Beatlesque pop of Sunday's Child to more subtle intrumentals. He occasionally gets back together with the other members of Glass Harp for reunion concerts and continues to release solo projects including Roundabout in 2006. ~ Sandra Brennan

Back in the late 70's early 80's my family and I went to the same church ad him and his wife. He played a lot there. He even had a recording studio in the church. He was nice to us kids that attended the Christian school also at the church.

I see Phil Keaggy's appeal, but he's not for me...too much acoustic elevator music (like 'County Down'). I'd listen to Michael Hedges over him, and take Adrian Legg over both in a second. Can't see how his religion is remotely relevant.

An incredible talent and person. Most do not even know he has a missing finger that is kind of covered up as he plays on his right hand lost it as a kid.

I saw Glass Harp in concert back in 1971? when they played at Ashland College (now University). whoa. Then I saw Phil Keaggy about 10 years ago in concert in Schenectady, NY. Truly, Keaggy is a guitar master. I'd place him in the top 10. Keep on playing Phil!

Thanks Pandora. I hear a lot of musicians for the first time hear. Phil Keaggy is one of those who somehow was overlooked by mass media until now. Listening to his guitar and he plays this lick and I go Wow. That one is a little different, new. You can't compare someone in terms of best or better than. Everyone has their own personal taste. I'll be looking for him on YouTube.

I had the privilege of seeing Phil many times in the late seventies, early eighties. He is one of the most amazing guitar virtuoso's on our life time. Anyone out there remember his concert in San Jose in 1979-80 when he walked onstage and apologized that he had laryngitis, the audience moaned, because at that time he was know for his singing and songwriting in Christian music. Well needless to say he proceeded to play his guitar for almost two hours! Mind blowing, massive standing O at the end.

More than twenty years, huh? Let's see... 2015 minus 1973 equals, OMG! ...FORTY-TWO years of playing the heck out of his guitar. I've heard from more than one source that most musicians, secular or Christian, consider him one of the top guitarists ever.

Anyone who thinks that Frank Zappa was one of the greatest guitarist's ever,is more than likley taking all the drugs that he never did... and Ted Nugent ? He's not even worth mentioning as a guitarist. He's a great Patriot and bow hunter... The rest was a big SHOW. I saw Frank 3 times. Good guitarist, but not ranked with the best... Outstanding showman though...

I'd have to agree with Keith below. Truly one of the Masters of the guitar. I've had the chance to see Phil in a guitar shop with about 20 other people before a concert. He picked up a $150 shop guitar off the rack, tuned it and proceeded to play for about 30 minutes while talking with the group. One of the guitar techs in the shop just stood with his mouth hanging open and said it was the most incredible thing he had heard in decades of working with guitars. Shine on Brother!!

Lots of great music in the post Beatles decades. None better than Phil's, recorded or live. Huge variety of styles like the Beatles, very innovative as well. Top that of that his life and music are drenched with humility and God s love. What could be better?
