I like Buddy Guy’s explanation as to why he had a polka dot Strat. I like his ”I done got old.”

Early Paul Butterfield Blues Band! The back of the original Elektra LP cover of their first album states: “We suggest that you play this record at the highest possible volume in order to fully appreciate the sound of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band.”

John Lee Hooker could sing/play an entire song using one simple chord. I remember when he played with Santana and said that he was tired.

I’m very much a fan of John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, BB King, Albert Collins and Robert Cray. Oli Brown’s stuff is good too. I have most of John Campbell’s albums - he was a great blues musician, singer and songwriter who sadly died far too young (41). Really like John Mayall, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Paul Rodgers and Joe Bonamassa too. Really like Seasick Steve’s stuff too.

Peter Green’s guitar went to Gary Moore and owned by Slash as I recall.

”i Got The Blues for You” can be seen live on YouTube.
