    David Gilmour gets my vote, but there are so many outstanding guitarists these days, that it's hard to pick only one great. I'm surprised no-one's mentioned Carlos Santana yet. Then there's Lustrehand and Lustrehand junior, of course....
    I am living for today, always remembering yesterday, and looking forward to tomorrow!

    You have a point. That would be some face-off.

    No doubt in my mind of the outcome. Les is God.

    Hmm, there's been no mention of any female guitarists yet. One of my fave female rock bands is Heart - sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson. I think Nancy's a nifty guitar player, so I'm voting for her!

    Just got a marketing email from Amazon..... new Rory Gallagher album, Stage Struck, now available.

    Used to go see Rory in Manchester and Birmingham years ago. Superb live performer; best gig of the lot was one time at Manchester Apollo when all the stage power went off - he got right to the front of the stage and went acoustic while they fixed the problem. A lesser man would have gone off stage until the power was back - he just enjoyed playing. The roar of approval he got when the power was fixed was incredible even though I'd guess half the people in there couldn't have heard a thing of the acoustic set.

    Another R.I.P., sadly....... now, where's me check shirt?

    That she is, remember seeing a video of her playing a tapped version of Flight of the Bumblebee, pretty amazing stuff.

    Until I went to look at the Amazon site I'd wondered if it might be a digital remaster, or something, of the original Stage Struck. But no; it's a double CD correctly titled "Rory Gallagher / Stage Struck" because it's a joint reissue of both those albums.

    I've got Top Priority on vinyl (yayy for vinyl), Calling Card and Meeting with the G-Man on CD. Ted McKenna drummed Top Priority, and someone called Rod de'Ath (probably my appalling ignorance at work again) on Calling Card.

    How come no one's mentioned Peter Green yet? Some glorious stuff to listen to from the days when Fleetwood Mac was Fleetwood Mac, and not Fleetwood Fluffy Chicken.
