The mother quote has been abbreviated.
It should read "Nobody loves me but my mother, and she might be jiving too ".

Philosophers have only interpreted the world - the point, however, is to change it. No it isn't ... maybe we should leave it alone for a while.

In retrospect, the question was a little too broad.

Getting back to James question...
Alexis Korner ( my first ever like music event)
Bill Nelson - (Yorkshire’s finest guitarist??)
Elliot Randall ( the riffs behind lots of other people’s music)
Warren Hayes.. every time I see Govt Mule. ... different interpretation every time I see them.. His interpretation of “Sad and Deep as You” live ...say no more.
Controversial maybe.... Gary Moore .. Colosseum and his later blues stuff.

A tight accomplished group of musicians makes anything look easy and risk free. Jazz is where the improvisation is and when bands jam. It also occurs in places you may not think, like ELP. Was at a Carl Palmer gig a year or so back... he talks as much as he plays, his stories would suggest they improvised on everything until they got a version they liked, even then Keith Emerson would change stuff midway through a concert to catch the other two out.

I will eat humble pie....Frampton didn’t come from Yorkshire did he :wink:

Should rephrase it as “one of” ....

As you can tell Jazz isn’t really a genre of music I listen to. I small minded greasy rocker at heart :wink:

Ah, but in blues the original is always the best.

Thank you all for all the suggestions - fantastic guitarists on that list and some I've not listened too before and many not recently...
