Music: Primarily the Blues and Contemporary
Eric Clapton - Favorite Album: Journeyman
Clapton has been one of my favorite guitarists since the Cream era. His earlier work
with The Yardbirds, John Mayal and others laid down a foundation that he has built upon
throughout his career.
David Gilmour (Pink Floyd): Favorite Album: Dark Side of the Moon
A true master of the electric guitar, and was voted No. 1 in Fender's Greatest
Players poll in the February 2006. He is a master at layering the perfect
mix of tones, melodies and riffs to make the any song a complete experience.
Teriffic song writter and musician, never made it as a major artist of acclaim.
A number of his tunes have been made famous by other artists. For example
the Eric Clapton versions of "After Midnight" & "Cocaine" were much more popular.
This is not to diminish Cales' talent in any way, he would not be around without
hits of his own. Some of his more popular tunes are "Call Me The Breeze", "Magnolia"
and Crazy Mama".
