Re: Favorite musician
I saw Beck at the House of Blues in Vegas a few years ago - he ha d KILLER female voalist who damn near stole teh show - reminiscent of Janis Joplin - we got the last 2 seats, and were center stag about 20 feet away. "Because We Ended As Lovers" is a killer tune. If you like that, also check out "Riviera Paradise" - Stevie Ray Vaugh, "A Song For George" and "Ah Via Mucicom" - Eric Johnson - he is technically brilliant on guitar.
I agree with other comments - can't pick a favorite - even a favorite guitarist. Clapton, Stevie Ray, Keb 'Mo, Eric Johnson, Gary Moore, early Jimmy Page, Robert Cray, Albert King, Johnny Winter, etc, etc etc - and we haven't even left Rock yet (except maybe Keb 'Mo)
