I think you may have hit the nail on the head there with Rory Gallagher.

Suuu (EDIT: F*cking) perb. Every song is putting a big ol smile on my face.


I will continue to dig out the other suggestions I havent followed up yet though, so keep em comming.

The reason for all this is I have always been a bit narrow minded and just kept to what I know, Its good to expand that.

Glad you like Rory, HG!

I was lucky enough to see him live several times - including at the Marquee c. 1968/9 when he turned off his amp and played some tunes acoustic.
Very brave given that every one else was using banks of "Orange" etc. amps and speakers.

Wonderful

Velton mentioned the guitar duel (with Steve Vai) in the Crossroads flick ....get the Crossroads 1 CD box set by Clapton.

There's a version of Crossroads on there that is excellent. Listen to every version of Crossroads that Clapton has done and then listen to this one, this is THE BEST version and it's a great blues version whereas the others are rock based.

And for a comparison, listen to the original version, Crossroads Blues, by Robert Johnson. If you didn't know any better, you wouldn't know they were the same song, only about 45 years apart.

Along with thw film Crossroads, see if you can dig out "Search for the Lost Chord" Its Jools Holland riding across the States on a Vincent Black Shadow meeting all sorts of Blues and Folk musicians along the way. There is also "Walking to New Orleans" which is Robbie Coltrane driving across America in an old Cadillac and once again searching out Blues music.

I beg to differ - this is much classier - and arguably more bluesy :

Stevie Ray Vaughan is good once in a while. Problem is that the local classic rock station, KZEP 104.5, has a habit of playing one or two of his tunes to the exclusion of any of the others so it starts to get on yer tits hearing the same ones.

Guess the DJ Droids have a play list that they HAVE to stick to no matter what. :roll:
You sick little monkey!!!! Holy crap!!!!
