HOUSTON LOCAL MEDIA'S FAVORITE GUITARIST
We may not agree on everything but the thing we all can agree on is Sports and Music. A while back, I asked individual media personalities "who was there favorite guitarist". I love music second to football so this was right up my alley. Thanks to all of the media and fans who participated.
I will start off by saying my favorite guitarists are Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Prince and Slash. I love Jimi Hendrix because he was nasty, talented, and before his time. I am not head over heels when it comes to his vocals but that boy can handle an axe.
|Eddie van Halen|
|Stevie Ray Vaughn|
Robert Henslee - Stevie Ray Vaughn
Rich Lord - Stevie Ray Vaughn
Sean Pendegast - Eric Clapton
Jay Dirt - Hendrix, Van Halen, Randy Rhodes
|Kenny Wayne Shep|
John McClain - Eric Clapton
Joel Blank - Jimi Hendrix, Robert May, BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimmy Page
Max Edison - B B King, Lightning Hopkins, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters
WRAP IT UP
As I received the personalities' feedback, 2 things jumped out: No Slash, Stevie Ray Vaughn multiple appearances. Honestly I thought Slash would be like the consensus since I like him so much but I guess he is two commercialized. In all seriousness, after looking at the artist there are two artist who's catalog will be in my possession by week's end: Muddy Waters and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Muddy Waters simply because he's a black artists I have heard the older generation reference in addition to Max and ND. I feel like an idiot saying this but I always thought SRV was C&W music which means negative for me. I could be dead wrong about SRV but the shire curiosity has me wanting to hear how he tame the axe.
