By Roy Buchanan. Book. 282 pages. Backbeat Books #0879306394. Published by Backbeat Books (HL.330775).

Item Number: HL.330775
ISBN 0879306394. 6x9.25 inches.

Roy Buchanan was a “guitarist's guitarist” who shunned fame for a musical odyssey on America's roadhouse circuit with his battered Telecaster – melding blues, country, jazz and rock like no player before or since. This is a compelling road trip through the gritty world of honky tonks and beer joints where this enigmatic journeyman preferred to play. Readers meet the biggest names in pop music and legions of unknowns along the way, from the dawn of rock 'n' roll to Buchanan's puzzling death in 1988.

“We just sat there aghast ... It was some of the best playing I've ever heard ... He defied all the laws of verse-chorus-verse and just blazed.” – Jeff Beck

“Roy was one of the creators in the pioneering of unusual sounds. It seemed as though I was hearing them come first from Roy Buchanan.” – Les Paul.

    some of the finest "HOT-LICK'S" to hear that long-ago....roy is great.........a slow-to-hand and could hold to a note for the longest.........clear as a bell..i often have wondered why a billy gibbon's with all the modern equipment available.wouldn't as a tribute.clean up the sorry performance of those day's amplifier.......and in modern sound.bring out the best of roy's music...if not for that poor quality.along-side of the billy gibbon's and stevie ray/jimmie vaughn guitar's..texas will never be the same......***** and not a star less..........from child-hood on....roy can rest deep in this old texan's memory for-ever..and a day that is!!!!just o' wes/2001
