    I saw him live at Cal Poly, Pomona theater about 20 years ago. Yes...he's an incredible musician...his hand span is like 7 or 8 frets...but I gotta tell ya...he put me to sleep.

    The warm up band, The Fents...blew him away.

    I've heard something like that before.

    It's the other interpretation.

    John Fahey, true master of the twelve string. Leo Kotke said that Fahey was a mentor. Put out tremendous albums. A joke and a clown in person. I read once how disappointing his shows could be and then I got to see him in person and it was so true.

    Also, I've been looking and I haven't seen Les Paul's name. He's not just a name on a guitar. I'm pretty partial to Jerry and Jorma myself and Jorma is still playing and Steve Miller must belong on a list if it includes some of the other names I've seen.
    Jorma made the airplane. He basically is Hot tuna and now he actually has a bluegrass album out. Garcia's style was so different that you might wriggle out of putting him on this list but it would be a travesty, unless maybe he got his own list. If all you have ever heard him play is the Dead you have missed a bunch.

    That's cool. It just means the seminar has become a party.

    Thanks to everyone,

    If there was a "prettiest music from the ugliest guitar" award it would have to go to Willie Nelson. I don't know about technique and such but he pulls such melodious sound from such a poor raggedy falling apart looking guitar I find it amazing every time I see him play.

    Now that we've broadened this beyond rock, I've been following the Leo Kottke thread back: John Fahey, Peter Walker and the granddaddy of international string fusion and incredible string artistry in general: Sandy Bull--I have Inventions and Demolition Derby on vinyl, the first quite worn, the latter in quite good condition. John Fahey has made many albums; Peter Walker is a little hard to find; for Sandy Bull there's a best of the vanguard years compilation (Reinventions) that looks worthwhile.

    Saw Sandy Bull at the Fillmore. He stuck a compression driver and horn up on a pole at the front of the crowd.

    TERRIBLE! Damaged my hearing, probably.

    Somehow, "Blend" is better on my well-worn vinyl than CD, also....

    My wife and I were just talking about the fact that musicians can sometimes be real dunces when it comes to sound systems. They just hear into the music and maybe have the ability to ignore all of the problems. They need to be saved from themselves. They need people who can hear them and also evaluate the quality of the sound system they use to present themselves. I just attended a festival of classical Indian music in Dehli; the music was quite wonderful, but, I'm sorry, but they should have asked me about those speakers.

    Joe Walsh

    I'm talking the James Gang Joe Walsh, not so much the Eagles and later Joe Walsh.

    His brilliant work on Funk #49 is legendary, and the "train wreck" segment at the end of Walk Away is still a classic.

    As the booze, drugs, and brain damage mounted, IMO he became less rather than more of a great guitarist.

    Tommy Bolin

    I've got the Tommy Bolin compilation The Ultimate, and for many of his fans, that says it all. He rarely demonstrated the totality of his gift due to drug addiction and alcohol, and he died at a very young 25.

    However his work with Bill Cobham on Billy's Spectrum album and the recently-released cuts from Tommy's band Energy show an amazing gift.

    Prince

    Anyone who doesn't think this diminutive monarch can rock hasn't been paying attention. He's fast, melodic, and clean. He can bend a chord with the best of them. He's a guy who sounds every bit as good live--maybe better--as he does in the studio.
