Yup! Whittington... killer, modern blues licks! Napa iling si Clapton sa galing nito on the video of Mayall's bday 70th concert... thanks, bro!

And how could I have forgotten Michael Bloomfield!

Eric Clapton - who hopefully will be here in September which would  be my 2nd time since I saw him in Manila in 81 (if I remember right)
Duane Allman/Dickie Betts of the Allman Bros. - Dickie Betts is playing here at the Ottawa Blues Festival this July. I also saw the Allman Bros with Dickie Betts and Warren Haynes a few years ago.
Johnny Winter - Saw him 3 months ago, it's so sad to see him in his present state, needs to be helped when walking and sat down all the time. He still is good albeit a bit slower with his fingers now and prone to committing mistakes. One night he's good other nights he sucked.
B.B. King Who I saw back in 94, sits down playing now.
Buddy Guy I also saw him in 95
Robert Johnson I'd be worried if I see him.

There are others but these are the ones that come to mind.

Yup, I'll make you a copy of early Bloomfield, via the first two Butterfield albums and the Super Session album...

Deacon Blues (or should it be Deacon Jazz?) can better describe the Bloomfield style to you. He's heard the above albums na. IIRC, he was disappointed...

i can see why deacon blues/jazz would be disappointed w/ bloomfield. altho big fan ako, IMO magulo si bloomfield e, parang chopsuey of guitar styles. that's because he is really a chameleon. if you can hear him focus on a certain style and work within it, galeng!  still tho, lumalabas yung pagiging praning nya dahil sa drugs.  parang wala siyang story and just babbles.  

in short, walang isang style si bloomfield. proof of that is the album, "If you love thes blues, play 'em as you please."  

i also have a copy of his Live at the Waldorf album, if you want to hear searing Goldtop P90 tone!

txt txt na lang, boys  ;-)

That's sad! I wonder how his brother Edgar is doing...

Yeah, so sad to see JW in that state ;( when i got a copy of his dvd, my heart was beating furiously to watch him. when i popped it in the player, it bled ;(

heheheh, who wouldn't be worried if they didn't see robert johnson! how about conducting a seance/clinic where we summon the spirits of the departed guitar greats ;) (count me out! hahaha!) they can teach us their stuff! btw- (off topic) didn't guitar player magazine have a Jimi issue where the interviewers sought the services of a medium to contact him? Jimi stated that he liked Clapton Unplugged. I lost my copy of that...

hmm, great idea for a new thread, hehehehe... will post

"Mmmmm.... You know I hobo'd, hobo'd, hobo'd, hobo'd,

JLH, Muddy, Lightnin Hopkins, and BB King are the deepest blues vocalists for me.

Everyone's mentioned the guitar gods and heroes, but there were/are a lot of other great blues guitarists to listent o and learn from... Peter Green, Mick Taylor, Rick Derringer, Harvey Mandel, Dave Mason, Mick Abrahams... and today's Kid Ramos, Jimmy Vaughan, Bonnie Raitt, and the fat guy who plays guitar for John Mayall (sorry I forgot his name...)

They all inspire!


and the fat guy who plays guitar for John Mayall (sorry I forgot his name...)-Buddy Whitington?

he used to play guitar for the late great john lee hooker.he has a band called " rick parish and the blue monsoon"

the amp? it's a hot rod deville...really road weary but other wise sounds great. i got a piece of blues history man.

I guess a stage can only accomodate one fat guitar player at a time! nyuk nyuk nyuk....  :lol:

Walter Trout is great, but after watching a whole dvd's worth of his concert, medyo nakakasawa na yung od tone niya. Whereas Buddy Whittington sounds so fresh all the time, with clean strat tone to die for!

Can anyone (in Manila) pls. share cds of this guy?
