    I didn’t have any guitar heroes either - just a few guys I tried to steal technique from. BB King was first.

    BB was a great player. I was really into Albert King, kind of a journey from listening to Clapton, who derived a whole chunk of vocabulary from Albert.

    My playing of the same notes can’t touch the skill of someone who did it night after night for however many years. There’s just no substitute for steady gigging. Alas, one has so many choices to make in life!

    I was the same way with the Pope.

    My guitar hero was/is Ray Parker Jr.


    Here he is playing what’s basically the 1983 version of a 594

    You're ahead of me. I still don't know who he is.

    It’s good to have friends who share my affliction. ;)

    To be fair, I didn’t know who he was until I came here.

    Geez - hard to believe so many of you haven’t heard of him. Maybe he should have sat down when he played because Standing Pat hasn’t done wonders for his name recognition.

    If you've never heard of him definitely worth checking out!
