  • The Blues Fan Club

    Started a new thread after I (being a novice) started this thing in the introduction section. Thought we needed a thread for the Blues guys and gals that wasn't necessarily about blues icons. This could also be a place for blues-rock and country-blues. Welcome, open a beer and listen to some tunes.

    Oreo Cookie Blues

    Lonnie Mack teamed up with Stevie Ray Vaughn for this song. Here they perform it with acoustic guitars.

                How about Give Me Back My Wig? I just acquired this video of Montreux from '82 & '85. In '82, SRV was unknown outside of Austin, yet he was booked at the blues night at Montreux. I was shocked that he was being booed. There is SRV on stage playing for all he's worth, and the Euros are booing him. Couldn't believe it.

                I saw him in '85. I had a Dutch girlfriend at the time, and she DID NOT WANT TO SEE HIM. I dragged her, as I went to see all her New Wave acts. I don't understand Europeans sometimes.

                Here ya go, Terri.

                      WOW! Lil' Ed is a very little guy...you can really tell when you see him go into the audience.

                      Oh, and yeah...this group is great!

                        I would like to share a vid of 2 of my favorite musicians...among many, of course.

                        Buddy Guy and Carlos Santana jamming at the 1982 Drinkin' TNT 'n' Smokin' Dynamite (live) Montreax Jazz Fest. Santana & Buddy speaks Blues fluently.

                          Buddy Guy was ranked 13th in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time". He has not only played with the most influential musicians but Buddy Guy's songs have been covered by Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Mayall, Jack Bruce, and others.

                          His signature guitar licks can easily lull me into a "blues" trance.

                            Damn Right I Got the Blues

                            Buddy Guy, what an inspiring player. I saw him, he was opening for George Thorogood and he was so hot, poor ol' George had a heck of a time winning over the audience after that. Anything after Buddy's guitar is anti-climactic.
