    My dad too! :)

    My very first exposure to Roy Buchanan was when he opened third bill at a Mahavishnu Orchestra concert (or was it Yes?) at Winterland in San Francisco in 1975/1976. I think it was Mahavishnu in 1976 because I'm looking at a picture on my office wall of John McLaughlin playing his double necker at that concert in 1976 and I was there :D

    Redd could be on that list.

    Guess Keef doesn't make the cut.

    Keef is an extraordinary rhythm player and I think you're referring to Jerry Reed. If not I'm not familiar with Redd.

    In my mind the number one is Greg Koch but he is a blend of all the rest. Too many to mention.

    Oh, and Johnny Hiland, what a monster.

    And you need to have Ed Bickert and Ted Greene on this list as well!
    These guys sure added some *respect* to the Telecaster history.

    Not familiar with Redd? Search Redd Volkaert, and enjoy. You're welcome.

    FYI - Make sure you have a couple of hours.
