The real deal "Sound of San Francisco" IMHO was forged by both Gurley and Cippolina, absolutely unique guitar stylist's that influenced my early years tremendously.
RIP James, I will miss you.

Yeah, those sounds are ingrained from my youth for sure...I saw this on Yahoo news yesterday and spent some time listening to Big Brother. They played with so much fire and passion it just never gets old. RIP James.

I saw Janis Joplin w/ BB&HC at the Alexandria Roller Rink with Rod Stewart, Jeff Beck and Ron Wood opening.
The show ran 2 hours late, so in a cool turn of fate, my father got to see the whole show too.

I'm still amazed they could even stand up on stage.
Janis killed half a bottle of Southern Comfort during the show.

Rod Stewart was so sick drunk, he hurled behind the PA towers
and they all still kept rocking.

RIP James Gurley--one of the fathers of psychedelic guitar.

That video is a poor example of his abilities. In fact it sounds like one of those parody SHRED videos. Seek out a live version of Summertime.....
