Ritche Blackmore !!

How could I forget?

I read a great article him in this months Classic Rock - The guy has just dropped completely of off the scene.

He's just off doing his travelling minstrel bit, while there seems to more renewed interest in Purple. I guess he's happy in his work, but what loss for the rest of us.

Jimmie Vaughan is one of the most underated guitar players today and I'm a huge fan. I lived in Austin when Jimmie was with the Fabulous Thunderbirds and they were the house band at Antones - I spent alot of time there listening to them before they hit it big. Jimmie plays with the approach of "less is more". He once said in an interview regarding soloing that the object is not to play every note you know, just the right ones.

No doubt that Stevie was a monster but he always tipped his hat to his older brother - saying that Jimmie was his biggest influence.

Yes, the Fabulous Thunderbirds are one of my favorite bands, too, and I also like Kim Wilson's and Jimmy Vaughan's solo albums. Nice picture, by the way!

Malcolm Young is also a very effective rhythm player and somehow the backbone of the AC/DC sound with his contrapoint chording licks vs. the beat and the melody lines.
