Like the blues song, " I'm built for comfort not speed baby". Pretty sure it was B.B King.

Actually it was Willie Dixon. Was covered by a heap of people including Howlin' Wolf.

He also wrote Bring it on Home, You Shook Me and I Can't Quit You Baby (covered by Led Zeppelin), Little Red Rooster (covered by the Rolling Stones), Spoonful (covered by everyone including Cream).

He also got a co-writing credit for Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin.

Very prolific songwriter and pretty awesome musician.

Thanks. It was the Howlin' Wolf version I was thinking of.

I was lucky enough to see Willie Dixon play several times in the early seventies. Towering presence on stage and played double bass. He move to Canada (Edmonton) in the later part of his career. His music was a reason I took up double bass and played in a roots blues band in Vancouver for several years with "California Slim and the Faith Healers".

You're a very lucky man Bob. Would have loved to see him perform. And Hubert Sumlin is a very underrated guitar player.

The only blues legend I managed to see was Albert Collins. He played the old Palace in St Kilda and brought out the "100ft guitar lead". He starts wandering the crowd with the minders holding the lead overhead... Ended up standing three feet in front of me for about 10 minutes ripping some of the greatest guitar licks you've ever heard. What a night...

Did manage to see Leon Russell a couple of years ago at the Palais in Melbourne.

Turning into a blues thread.
I saw B.B King at the Juan les Pins jazz festival. In a small park so we were really close to him. It was amazing.

I saw BB King three times. Transcendent experiences.

So latest effort from Connor Baxter.
How accurate is that watch over a short distance and time though?

Well, according to my Garmin watch I often hit 40+km/h so I thought about partaking in this silly little contest to show them how it's done.
Just didn't have the heart to break their spirit at such a young age

Albert Collins! Truly a legend. Our guitar player Joel Pickford (aka California Slim), toured Ontario with a contemporary of Albert's. Quite a character. Would not pick up an amp, "I was carrying it one day and broke my hand!". Joel believed that Albert was one of the finest blues guitar players....period. He met Albert a several times and booked him for a few festivals. Apparently he tuned his guitar in an unorthodox way that helped to create that signature sound. There is so much wry humour in the songs he wrote. The mention of Albert's name and I instantly hear his unmistakable guitar sound..............nothing quite like it............oh...yes........how fast can I paddle..........not very fast.

You do not realize how much energy there is in his music until you see him live. After that LPs are a poor substitute.

Yep. Definitely one of the more unique tones. His attack on the strings is amazing...
