Years ago (late 70's or early 80's I think), I saw the Moody Blues in concert. Very, very good.

Glad you like them. Jason & New Blood have a couple of CDs out - Todd has a new CD but I think it's not available yet.

OK, how about some more British electric blues. All about desperation, insanity, isolation, and loneliness.



Supertramp stuff is hard to come by on YouTube, but here is another

I am impressed by your list. Not so much for the groups you have seen, but that you can remember. Recently I was talking to my sister and she mentioned the time we went to see Shawn Phillips in concert. I have no recollection of ever seeing Shawn Phillips.

I saw Albert King play at one of his last concerts in Houston. He died within a few months after that. '
Before he came, a music critic for the Houston Chronicle said King either played brilliantly or like an old man that was tired. Well, when I saw him he "broke" a number of strings and didn't play--instead fiddling with his guitar and fixing the strings while his group carried on and didn't missed a beat. However, when he did play...OMG! I so understood why he was a star! Unfortunately, he was a tired old man most of the evening, tho, and I was disappointed.



Agree with another poster: Clapton is God!

The Three Kings: Albert, Freddie, and B.B.!

Clapton has gotten better with age. I have seen lots of great guitarists, but two of my favs are Roy Buchanan and David Gilmour.

The Blues Project and Bob Dylan, I would have loved to see them. I had planned to see Dylan in Fargo some years ago but came down with the flu and didn't get there.

Must have been 'bout '88 or so, went to a John Lee Hooker concert at a little joint adjacent to Purdue Univ. called (I think) The Stabilizer - venue size, maybe 200. Went with a blues junky friend at 6:00PM for a 10:00PM show and got front row seats (5 ft or so from JLH). Hooker's performance looked more like the one in the original Blues Brothers movie than the following clip from the '60s. At 70 or so, JLH was still fabulous, especially if you like the Delta "denomination" of the Blues

I guess that's sarcasm. I was skeptical too, but I've seen the clips on the web of "Zappa does Zappa". That title just increased my skepticism, he would appear to be just using his Dad's rep, but.... wow, that 'kid' can play. No one could convince me he isn't serious about his art. HFWR has seen Dweezil in concert and was impressed, and he seems to know a thing or three about guitars & players. (Dweezil is a good search term!)

Check him and the band out:
