        1. I am not even going to say anything as if I did I would make a dumb ass out of myself again.
          I cannot even say how much that I think of you guys here.
          I am just re booting my’self as I said to ya RT .
          You guys are really special and ya all know it too . So on that note I better shut up 🙂 thankyou all, see ya in The Trenches my people

  2. Great post! I saw SRV in Montreal, he was opening for Robert Plant.1st show. He did an amazing 90 min not stop set. When Plant came out it was practically a buzz kill! Needless to say SRV did not open for him for long. May he Rest in Peace.

    1. When I saw SRV Joe Cocker opened for him a couple of times and Ely another, then I think his brother? Would have to look at the tee-shirts I bought to be sure though.

      1. I give Jimmie Vaughan credit for working hard and hanging in there (not saying he’s not good), but he could never, and still doesn’t, hold a candle to Steavie.
        RIP Steavie. Gone too soon. 🙁

        1. SRV always said that Jimmie was his major influence. But I agree Jimmie’s not bad but could,nt hold a candle to SRV.

          1. You are most probably right Angel-NYC. I should have said “one of his major influences”. and not the major. That interview I read was over 20 years ago. My bad.

  3. Right on Funny Farmer I would add Martin Barre to that list myself. Perfect 4 Gilmour, Page, SRV and Barre in any order. Cool

      1. Gee RT Hawk you’re right they are very good. I’ll have to up my list from perfect 4 to perfect 6 Haha.
