The Thrill is Gone

December 31, 2015


Shortly after returning from Viet Nam, I got into blues and electric guitar.  My friend Dave and I took turns trying to copy the likes of Muddy Waters, BB King, Albert King, or Peter Green and Fleetwood Mac with Willie Dixon.  I think Dave was pretty good in those days- I ended up studying classical guitar.  We often found ourselves in clubs, the only two white guys there.  I have often wondered how this odd mix came about.  Simply, we just wanted to play that stuff.  Here is a video that maybe explains it better than my words.  This is a live performance of "The Thrill is Gone" with BB and Gary Moore.
