Stevie Ray Vaughan.




I saw Stevie just a few months before his death. He was great, but if you listen to Albert King you'll hear where Stevie was coming from.

Jeff Beck is my favorite. Never heard him play the same lick twice in 40 years.

Depends on the style. For overall playing & composing Frank Zappa gets my vote.

SRV is up there in the blues category though.

Guitar, Paco De Lucia.
A samurai once asked Zen Master Hakuin where he would go after he died.
Hakuin answered, "How am I supposed to know?"
"How do you know? You're a Zen master?" exclaimed the samurai.
"Yes, but not a dead one," Hakuin answered.

I'm still pissed at SRV for falling out of the sky.

I did once have a thing about Leo Kottke...but that was the seventies, of which I remember...very little...
Empusa's crew, so naked-new they may not face the fire,
But weep that they bin too small to sin to the height of their desire,
