Buddy Guy is an exponent of Chicago blues and has influenced eminent guitarists including Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jeff Beck and John Mayer. In the 1960s, Guy played with Muddy Waters as a house guitarist at Chess Records and began a musical partnership with the harmonica player Junior Wells.
For almost 50 years, Guy has performed flamboyant live concerts of energetic blues and blues rock, predating the 1960s blues rockers. As a musician, he had a fundamental impact on the blues and on rock and roll, influencing a new generation of artists. Guy has been called the bridge between the blues and rock and roll. He is one of the historic links between Chicago electric blues pioneers Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf and popular musicians like Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page and later revivalists like Stevie Ray Vaughan. Vaughan stated that "Without Buddy Guy, there would be no Stevie Ray Vaughan. Clapton once described him as "the best guitar player alive".
On September 20, 1996, Guy was inducted into Guitar Center's Hollywood Rockwalk. Guy has won seven Grammy Awards. In 2003, he was presented with the National Medal of Arts, awarded by the President of the United States to those who have made extraordinary contributions to the creation, growth and support of the arts in the United States. Guy was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 14, 2005, by Eric Clapton and B.B. King. On December 2, 2012, Guy was awarded the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors. Guy was ranked 30th in Rolling Stone magazine's "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time".
Music's Finest: 🔍The Unheralded 🔍......... (1 of 3) - #RayManzarek ( #TheDoors) 🎹🎹🎹🎹🎹🎹🎹🎹🎹 From 1965 through 1973, a band known as 'The Doors' thrilled, sometimes baffled, and often sonically enlightened its fans, and the industry as a whole. No one sounded like them. They put an indelible stamp on music's landscape that hasn't been erased by either time or trends. But when most people think of the band, they (maybe unavoidably) think of Jim Morrison - the band's lead singer. So this is a post about the band's equally daring and brilliant keyboardist : Ray Manzarek. The Doors recorded 8 full albums in the space of about 5 years, and while that in itself is an achievement, what they did long term far surpasses numbers. How many one-hit wonders, not to mention one-album wonders, have there been? Almost countless, right? One of the biggest reasons The Doors avoided crashing into music's ditch of singular success is their originality - their sheer, literally startling originality. And half of that feat - maybe more - was due to Manzarek. When the band didn't have a bassist, he decided to use a Piano Bass instead, which birthed the now legendary "organ sound" and other unusual melodic elements heard in the band's songs. With Manzarek, the poetry of Morrison took on an alchemistic transformation while sitting in the crucible of his playing. And as the singer danced around on stage seducing the crowds vocally (and in other ways 🙂), Manzarek's instrumental contributions kept things from collapsing under the weight of spectacle. That makes him more than a co-founder of The Doors, it makes him an equal partner in its legend, and an unheralded contributor to Rock's popular culture.

Tá pensando em vir? Passa aqui! 🤘 Hoje ficamos abertos até as 3h!
Back to our usual cosy gig with the Rock Bottom family tonight! Ever notice our bassist looks like Keith Richards? And our featured guitarist from Touch Mahal a little like Ritchie Blackmore? 👀👀 Find us tonight for Classic 70s ROCK & BLUES! 🎶👊😎
So I'll be honest, the first few tracks of this didn't bowl me over. "Whole Lotta Love" is nice, but basically a retread. "The Reason Why" is also nice, but a bit boring. Then finally we catch a glimpse of what the band does best with the fuzzy "Hey Down," and then all holy hell breaks loose and "Tavern" kicks you in square in the face. After that, the album grabs my interest and flipping it over to Side 2, even more good stuff! This very used copy came from Germany on the cheap, and I'm definitely glad I got it, heavy Kraut blues rock that stands up to the best of them, including Lucifer's Friend, Jeronimo, etc. etc. I'd definitely recommend this!
The Cream of Clapton is a compilation of works involving Eric Clapton, which includes his solo work and also with Blind Faith, Cream and Derek and the Dominos. This is the Canadian (and also the Great Britain, French and Australian) version, which has a slight variation on the list of tracks than the US release, but both versions contain tracks recorded between 1966 and 1981. I can't help but notice the Canadian/GB/French/Australian version has the song Strange Brew on it, which makes me think I should have used a McKenzie brothers, but both of them are wearing tuques and well check out Tony Stark's hair here. It's the stuff of legends. Marvel Legends, that is. #dadjoke#thecreamofericclapton#ericclapton#cream#blindfaith#derekandthedominos#classicrock#bluesrock#marvel#marvellegends#ironman#polydorrecords

Let's wish a Happy Birthday to the king of the blues Mr. BB KING. Highly influential guitarist with a precise yet effortless sounding soft-fingered style, as well as the longest career in blues. The legendary B.B. King was without a doubt the single most important electric guitarist of the last half of the 20th century. His bending notes and staccato picking style influenced legions of contemporary bluesmen, while his gritty and confident voice -- capable of wringing every nuance from any lyric -- provided a worthy match for his passionate playing. Riley B. King (September 16, 1925 – May 14, 2015), known professionally as B.B. King, was an American blues singer, electric guitarist, songwriter, and record producer. He won his 15th Grammy Award in 2009. King was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, and is considered one of the most influential blues musicians of all time, earning the nickname "The King of the Blues", and is considered one of the "Three Kings of the Blues Guitar" (along with Albert and Freddie King). King was known for performing tirelessly throughout his musical career, appearing on average at more than 200 concerts per year into his 70s. In 1956 alone, he reportedly appeared at 342 shows. In this video clip King Performing his "THE THRILL IS GONE" amazing song. "The Thrill Is Gone" is a slow minor-key blues song written by West Coast blues musician Roy Hawkinsand Rick Darnell in 1951. B.B. King recorded his version of "The Thrill Is Gone" in June 1969 for his album Completely Well, released the same year. King's version is a slow 12-bar blues notated in the key of B minor in 4/4 time. In 1970, "The Thrill Is Gone" became a major hit for B.B. King, and became one of his signature songs. Enjoy 🎂🎸

On a day like this the legendary guitarist Mr. PAUL KOSSOFF was born in 14 September 1950 d. 19 March 1976, was an English guitarist best known as a member of blues rock band FREE. He studied Classical guitar by his teenaged years, but upon discovering the British blues-rock movement of the '60s, Kossoff's interest in guitar perked up once again, especially after catching a John Mayall's Bluesbreackers live show with Eric Clapton. At the age of 15 he formed the band Black Cat Bones, the band played with touring blues piano player Champion Jack Dupree, did many supporting shows for Fleetwood Mac and other gigs with Fleetwood Mac co-founder Peter Green. Kossoff had fully blossomed into an outstanding guitarist, renowned for his fluid, slow, and melodic leads and bluesy riffs. After Black Cat Bones brock up Kossoff and band mate drummer Simon Kirke set out to form another group, hooking up with vocalist Paul Rodgers and bassist Andy Fraser, the quartet decided to go by the name Free in 1968. The band released studio albums until the band disbanded in 1973 such as "Tons Of Sobs" in 1969, "Fire And Water" in 1970. By the early 1970s, Free was one of the biggest-selling British blues rock groups. The following year, in 1975 Kossoff formed a band and named it Back Street Crowler after his debut album. Kossoff died from a drug-inducted heart attack at the age of 25. Gone but not forgotten. In this video clip Kossoff performing amazing guitar solo on "FIRE AND WATER" song. "Fire and Water" is the first song from the Free's third studio album of the same name released in 1970. 🎂
