For a huge blues rock guitar fan

I have a dear friend named David R. who's recently become a huge blues rock guitar fan.  In fact, he purchased a newer ZZ Top CD and an older Johnny Winter/Rick Derringer live album circa 1970 to turn me on to what are some of his favorites.  I would like to return the favor.  However, since he travels a lot and does not have access to a fine CD player (I am a HiFi snob) and because I want to share my recommendations to the world, I thought it best to write a notems with some links to the greats/great songs.  So, here we go:

 

 1.  Alvin Lee and Ten Years After

 

2. Rory Gallagher

 

3.  Frank Marino

 

4.  Pat Travers

 

5.  Les Dudek

 

6.  Little Feat

7.  Dickey Betts

 

8.  Derek Trucks

 

9.  Joe Bonamassa

 

10.  Robben Ford

11. 

 

Guitar World's Article (includes Trower):  The 30 best blues guitarists in the world today

 

12.  Peter Frampton

 

13.  Bob Welch

 

14.  Joe Walsh

15.  Fanny

 

16.  Johnny Guitar Watson

17.  Frank Zappa

  • I woke this morning to the sad news of Christie McVie's passing.  Suffice it to say, it has been a melancholy day.I am flooded with memories of Fleetwood Mac from the first time I heard Rumours to a recent conversation I had with a dear friend about Bob Marley and the Wailers, the warmup band for their 1980 European tour. More than just memories though, it is the indelible mark
