    So many styles, so many favorites… but someone I return to time and time again for his amazing range is Adrian Belew. From acoustic simplicity to non-guitar-like effects and pedals to wall-of-sound crunch, he can do it all !!

    Best guitar player I ever saw perform is Jimi Hendrix. He had to wait to play until Monday morning but it was worth it! Yes I’m talking the real Woodstock not the fake ones! He tried Sunday night twice but the rain kept shorting out everything! I was 12 but never forgot how great he was! Cried like a baby when he passed the day before my 14 Birthday! Kiki is still my favorite❤️
