This is interesting… (well, okay, you’ll probably think I went too far there 😀 ) In summer 1975, John McLaughlin’s Mahavishnu Orchestra (rock band with guitar maestro dressed in white + orchestral string trio) co-headlined a US tour with Jeff Beck. If John had said to Jeff, ‘I’ve just had this premonition – in 44 years you’ll still be touring the US, dressed in white, with orchestral strings, playing Mahavishnu music…’
30 seconds of a track, or free DL if you pre-oder…
Following his “Muddy Wolf At Red Rocks” event and the “Three Kings Tour” where he covered Albert, Freddie and BB, Joe Bonamassa has announced plans for a British Blues Boom special this year.
He talks about it in depth here and also demonstrates how to play like Eric, Jeff and Jimmy, plus there’s a little Paul Kossoff and Peter Green in there too.
Those of a nervous disposition may like to skip the first eight mins which is all amp talk. After that it’s guitar heaven all the way.
I found this late 60s LP today. It’s been in a cupboard for at least a decade and both record and sleeve are pretty much knackered. But I’ve never thrown it away and I’ll tell you why when someone identifies it.
Name the band, the album and the famous member.
No cheating please.
