Some might say "Cream" or maybe even Booker T and the MG's? But this guy is only but a clown, a wantabe!

He is actually pretty famous. His name is Dweebus Maximums.

I had the opportunity to see Albert King on a couple of occasions. Once, at the San Francisco Blues Festival, it was just Mr King and his acoustic guitar on stage. 3 or 4 songs into the set and Carlos Santa walks on stage with his electric guitar. There is no back up, no bass, no drums, no rhythm section. Just these two men and their guitars. They play a bit, then in the middle of a song Mr King says "If you will excuse me, this man wants to play his guitar for you" and walks off stage. Carlos Santana played the most amazing guitar, solo, no one else on stage. Just one man, one guitar. He made that guitar play bass, drums, rhythm and lead all at the same time. His guitar walked, talked, sang the blue, and had non-consensual sex with everyone in the audience. As amazing as it was, it pissed me off to no end. You NEVER here Carlos Santana play guitar like that on any of his recordings. Those recordings are pissant foo-foo little piece of donkey crap compared to what he can do. I have never bought another Santana recording after seeing that show.

I had a chance to see Mr King perform one more time after that, before he passed.

If you have a chance, I highly recommend you catch a live performance by Tab Benoit. I have seen him play in small, intimate venues. This man is incredible. He covers Born Under A Bad Sign, tho his cover of 'I Put A Spell On You' is better.

Not bad, but I'm one of them folks that the FIRST version I HEAR (that would be "Cream") seems to always be the one I like best - and I been a Cream fan a LONG time!

Somehow (not sure why?) it sent me (reminded me?) back to THIS vid - different animal, but some REAL "gutsy" guitar work on the Strat!

Watch, especially, starting at 1:41, then again at 4:01 - I'd give 2 left nuts to be able to play like that!

Eyeball,tab's
We're lucky in cajunland to be able to see guys like this all the time. They play Tab's music on 101.1 all the time.
