Living Colour - American Skin (41 Shots) (2001)

Is it a gun? Is it a knife?
Is it a wallet? This is your life
It aint no secret, no secret my friend
You can get killed just for living in your American skin

Sadly still relevant today.

I don’t think it’s possible to clean hip-hop up anymore but balance would be nice. Especially with what main stream media feeds us.

Buddy Guy - Tramp

House guitarist at Chess Records and playing with Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy influenced everyone from Clapton, to Page, to Hendrix and more.

Eric Clapton said “Buddy Guy was to me what Elvis was for others.” Clapton said in a 1985 Musician magazine article that “Buddy Guy is by far and without a doubt the best guitar player alive…if you see him in person, the way he plays is beyond anyone. Total freedom of spirit, I guess. He really changed the course of rock and roll blues.”

According to Jimmy Page: “Buddy Guy is an absolute monster” 

Jeff Beck affirmed:

Geez, you can’t forget Buddy Guy. He transcended blues and started becoming theater. It was high art, kind of like drama theater when he played, you know. He was playing behind his head long before Hendrix. I once saw him throw the guitar up in the air and catch it in the same chord.

You can’t be a fan of classic rock without loving the bluesmen who made it happen. 

respect to the greats, and the originators
