    Howlin wolf - had a great album ("London sessions" maybe?) with Wolf, and young Clapton and Winwood.
    This ain't on it, but same riff/progression is on a song called "They Call Me the Rocker" it's my favorite blues riff of all time - used in several songs, (including the theme for Ren and Stimpy!)

    *Disclaimer - as a drummer, I may be misusing the above guitar terminology. ;)

    Priceless intro with Clapton trying to con Wolf into playing lead. Wolf gets a bit salty...

    If it's not a double-up, here's a quickie of Buddy just a couple weeks ago! Not bad for a 70-something, eh?
    Start the video at 5 minutes 10 seconds - if it doesn't automatically do so....
    THIS LINK should take you to that time....

    I have seen Buddy Guy 3 times. Once back in 1988, in 1997, and about 5 years ago. He is no just a great guitarist, but an incredible showman. He came up in the balcony section while playing one of the songs! A true living legend. According to wikipedia, he turns 77 on July 30 this year. the day after my birthday.

    One time he let my son - when he was 7 - play his guitar by strumming while he fingered it! That was at the Ben and Jerrys festival in Sugarbush, VT.
    Another time he let a woman (of course, he likes the ladies better) sitting at our table play it. It's funny as heck to watch him walk through the crowd and play little licks directly to one person or another!

    There are some real signature riffs that he has...but it's the timing and his showmanship that really sets it off.

    We made the pilgrimage to chicago and saw him in his club......:cool:
    Just noticed he's coming to town in Aug. along with that 14 year old wonderboy.

    Here's a guy from near me. He has a couple records out and works with some of the best in NY and around the world. My wife and I see him and his his band a few times a year locally. Not just a great player, but a real good guy. This is not his regular band, but the best I could find on YouTube.


    This is a little more jazzy than blues, but here he is with most of his regular band.


    Yes, that's Bernie Willliams and he is a pretty good player too! He comes out to the local places sometimes. Way cool, laid back guy that always has the best gear!

    There is a fine line between the two sometimes. Gil Paris and his band are a lot of fun because they are really jazz guys, so their blues and rock is like none other out there.
