    Speaking of Fleetwood Mac, have we added Lindsey Buckingham?
    I saw Lindsey, on MHD a couple of days ago, playing with Little Big Town.

    They were playing both Little Big Town songs and old Fleetwood Mac songs, finishing with "Go Your Own Way"

    Have to mention three unmentioned favourites: Steve Lukather (Toto) and Phil Lynnott (Thin Lizzy) and Janne Schaffer.

    Derek Trucks

    I know he was mentioned in I think the sixth post of this thread, but may I elaborate. I keep hearing his name pop up again and again from music lovers who's taste I respect, so I have been checking him out.

    His DVD The Derek Trucks Band - Songlines Live is a revelation. Here he is at Park West in Chicago in January 2006. He has only one guitar, a nice Gibson SG. First I noticed he is not a slide specialist. Then I noticed he is not a specialist at all. He plays a richly broad palette of electric guitar styles and then some. There is something really spooky going on. The solid body Humbucker SG sounds a lot like a big f-hole Gibson archtop when he plays a jazz riff. It sounds like a strat when asked to. How does he do that? Since his tone changes in mid bar if he wants it to, it has to be his hands on the strings and the guitar volume controls. I don't think he was fiddling with the tone controls much. You guitarists know how much range you can get by adjusting only volume controls and attack, but this is way beyond anything I have heard elsewhere in this regard. I can tell you Derek does not use any effects at all, plugging straight into the amp.

    Now move on to the Crossroads Guitar Festival 2007 DVD. His appearance as a leader begins his work for the day, but then he joins Eric Clapton's band in the last section of the concert and all hell breaks loose - if you know what to look for. The Park West concert showed he could do almost anything, and do it better than pretty much anyone else can. Here they proceed to do Tell The Truth and he does, among many other things, what I thought no guitarist could do. He effortlessly picks up Duane Allman's parts and - forgive me - does even better than Duane, a towering musical hero of mine, himself did. Of course at this point Derek has had more time to be Duane than Duane had. The two real veterans in the band from the "beforetime", Eric Clapton and the great Chris Stainton, who really have seen it all, actually stare in awe at the young guitarist producing the spectacle. To be honest it seems neither can quite believe what they are hearing despite an earlier rehearsal. At first I thought they were looking for a Que, but it does look more like, "Who is this guy?"

    From then on Derek is clearly in a class of his own whenever he is featured, even in this company. He comes so close to doing it all that I think only Jeff Beck breaks the spell of omnipitance. Jeff, love him or hate him, is the best living electric guitar player on the Earth and what he can do may never be repeated. Steve Winwood was the other really high spot of the evening for me, but I feel if Derek went that way too he could probably do that as well.

    Is the man who does almost any style better than anyone else the best lead guitarist there is? Other than Jeff, I think so. I believe Derek could, if he chose to, even pick up James Honeyman Scott's legacy, and I can't think of anyone else who could that, ever. If it turns out he could play like Peter Green, and I have no doubt he could do OK with Jimi, I think whoever is in charge should give up and place the crown on his head.

    I can't believe how young he is. There is a lot of music to look forward to.

    One of my all time favs, the Santana-John McLaughlin album Love Devotion Surrender back in the Sri Chinmoy motivated era. Saw them do it live, one of my favorite shows ever! Several minutes of battling hot rodders back and forth, some slow some fast. A classic
