Song of the Week 2/12/2010
"My Guitar Wants To Kill Your Mama" by Frank Zappa feat. Stevie Ray Vaughn
I ACTUALLY REMEMBERED TO DO THIS!!
So there's no question in my mind that on the short list of great guitar players, Stevie Ray Vaughn is the tops. Despite this being a Zappa song, he's really the star of the song. I don't have a whole lot to say about it apart for the lead guitar work is incredible. I wanted to post an mp3 or something, but this is a live track and I couldn't find it anywhere. I also was not able to upload it myself from my files. Sorry. Unfortunately, the album version of this track doesn't feature SRV, so I can't say it would be as good. But, I really don't know, you'd have to ask Joe Krause.
