What other dungeon is so dark as ones own heart, what jailer so inexorable as ones own mind.

Nothing gold can stay. Nature's first green is gold. Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leafs flower. But only so an hour. Than leaf subsides to leaf. So eden sank to grief. So dawn goes down today. Nothing gold can stay. (Robert Frost)

He's no Johnny Cash, that's for sure.

"When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace." -Jesus

"Also he [David] bade them teach the children of Judah [the use of] the bow" -Samuel

"An unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it." -Col. Jeff Cooper

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Benjamin Franklin

Some will die in hot pursuit and fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit while sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life and drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche coming down the mountain

Whole thing is worth watching but,

Jump ahead to about 9 minutes if you want to hear insanely quick playing that would make modern shredders start to cry.

I admit that I'm totally biased on this issue since the man was my hometown friend: Johnny Winter.

I had high hopes for Kenny Wayne Shepherd but he just fizzled after a few really good albums.

I like a lot of different kinds of music and find playing the guitar even somewhat competently evasive.

Even BB King said that Eric Clapton was the BEST guitar player HE ever knew.

And Gatemouth Brown said BB King was one dimensional. Eric Clapton once said Buddy Guy was the best guitarist he ever heard,
The fact is, the world is full of great, underrated guitar players. Hendrix's innovation started something new in the world of music. Duane Allman, Lowell George and Derrick Trucks rank pretty high up in slide guitar. Clapton in his young, drugged out blues days. Most any of the guitar players that came out of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. James Burton, Gibbons, Gilmore, Alvin Lee, Peter Green, Vaughn, and a thousand other guys that came out of the music scene from the late '50s to the late '70s, maybe early '80s. Style and technique vary among all of them, but they were/are great musicians in their own right.

Heard a story once. Don't know if it is true. Someone once asked Jimmy Hendrix what it felt like to be the greatest guitarist in the world and he answered "I don't know. You'll have to ask Leo Kottke."

He didn't sing
(well, he does, but not a lot)...and was doomed to fail as a result. His destiny would always be controlled by his frontman. And his sound would always change for the same reason. All of his big hit song vocals were done by someone else.

When people figured this out his popularity flat-lined practically overnight.
