    My favorite blues-type guys are Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, Roy Buchanan and Ten Years After. My favorite straight up blues artist by far is Albert King.

    Roy is bloody ridiculous. The guy is just a King, no matter what record sales say. He's as innovative as they come, too. There's this one part in that Bluz video where Roy's going off on this insane tangent and they show this girl in the audience freaking out like "no way..."
