Just to pick something I'll add:

Axis: Bold as Love
Rubber Soul
Inner Mounting Flame
Rhythm of the Saints
Americana
Kamakiriad
Best of Boingo
Fresh Cream
Alright, Still
Stereo Type A

I remember so clearly when I first heard Eddie play. FM100, Houston. I was tapping my home phone line into a Magnavox stereo console. "You Really Got Me" ripped through the speakers and knocked me on my *ss. I called a friend of mine and told him to switch the dial (yes, we had dials).

I used to watch ZZ Top jam at Milby Park on the weekends - way back in the days of orange sunshine. Billy Gibbons, what can I say?

Jimi never appealed to me. Yes, a wonderful technician, just no connection for me. Even Knopfler moves me more than Jimi. Pure crap that Trower and Stevie Ray are referred to as Jimi's dopplegangers. Stevie Ray played more like Albert King, anyway. And Trower simply snatched the pebble from Jimi's dead hands. I saw Trower the last time about two years ago.

Oh, hell no... how did I forget Kamakiriad?

Let me add to the list, any Albert King from Stax.

I would NEVER, EVER label SRV as a JH doppleganger. The fact that he could sound like him when he wanted to does amaze me. But I love SRV for what he did best - Texas Blues to the max.

In my book, JH was far more than an unbelievable technician (nobody made the guitar an extension of themselves like he did, and the guy could play ANY style) he was also a poet with feeling and vision. Songs like May This Be Love, Little Wing, Rainy Day Dream Away do sing to me. Maybe having seen him live three times helps me appreciate him I guess (one time The Crazy World of Arthur Brown opened for him - but that's another story ). As always, different flavors for different people .

I like both Albert & Freddie better than B.B. I love the SRV & Albert CD. I liked Mark Knopfler best when he played with his brother, though I always enjoy his barefinger style. And while we're on the subject, we really can't forget about Leslie West and his singing humbucking pick-ups .

I am telling you, we are kindred spirits. Twin Sons Of Different Mothers (add that to the list, but near the bottom).

Will a matchbox hold my clothes? Don't you lie to me.

Your guys are after my time, but here are a few:

Boz Scaggs, Linda Ronstadt, CCR, Doors, Beatles, Three Dog Night, Chicago, Moody Blues, Simon and Garfunkel, Carol King, Al Stewart, Bobby Holly, Richie Nelson, Bob Seger and the Silver Buffet Bang, Cat Stevens, Fleetwood Mac, Huey Lewis, Neil Diamond, and Elvis Presley. The album for all the above is their Greatest Hits. There are about four or five dozen more, but I won't bore you.

Willie and The Poor Boys, Year Of The Cat, A Question Of Balance, Bob Seger and who?

I stayed up late last night because I thought I heard the TV say that Bob Seger would be on Jimmy Fallon. My bad - it was Bob Saget.

I am not Huey Lewis and you just heard the news. [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1tstiCxybQ"]YouTube - Mainstreet- Bob Seger[/ame]

OK, I'm going to come out of the closet and say that I wore out three full sets of Moody Blues vinyl albums. But there were extenuating circumstances. Really. Those funny voices inside my head kept saying "put them on, put them on!" everytime I did one of those funny looking pills in assorted colors and shapes ... but no more. My favorite review of them tagged them as "Mantovani with teeth" . But no one did mellotrons like they did (now there's a wacky musical contraption if there ever was one), not even King Crimson, in my book, though they were close (and less mainstream ).

Was that Bobby Holly, or as Google would say, "Did you mean Buddy Holly"?

PS: +1 on CCR, or basically John Fogerty. They really got screwed by the label suits.

HEY! Wait a minute!

Nobody's mentioned Paul Anka yet!!!! Actually I think that guy wrote more songs for other artists than anybody else ever. But if you feel bad or depressed about that, you can always Put Your Head On My Shoulder ... Diana ...
