    First song that came to mind when he posted that. One of his finest moments. Definitely not the only playing of his that I really like but it’s ridiculously great.
    There was a point in time where he was THE rock guitar god. At times he was astounding.
    He couldn’t sustain it though but maybe nobody could sustain that level of creativity and intensity.

    Thank you so much for this! I'd heard his name mentioned many times over the years but inexplicably never checked him out. I'm kinda obsessed now thanks:D

    Peter Green and Bloomfield get my vote as well.

    I always liked this one from Clapton, too. Not on the same emotional level as Sean Costello but some great singing, playing and tone.

    Ah, the young and cocky JM from the inception of the JM3 (one of my desert island albums)

    Didn't flip through all the pages, but I always enjoyed the feel Jeff Healey put into the guitar...maybe it was the lap position that gave him that extra "edge" with the vibrato.

    Big props to the drummer for keeping the beat going during the outage.
    And those swells @ 9:50 on Parisian Walkways!

    I’ve put this clip up a number of times on TGP. I don’t mind doing it again, because Albert Collins‘ playing never gets old.
