Roy Buchanan ~ The man who tumbled The Stones down

Roy Buchanan ~ The man who tumbled The Stones down

b. September 23, 1949

He bacame a guitar legend in the early ’70’s, an influence on Jimi Hendrix , Eric Clapton, John Lennon and more. He turned down an invitation to joing The Rolling Stones earning him the nickname, The man who “tumbled The Stones down…”

For whatever reason, people rarely mention Roy Buchanan when asked for their list of great guitar players.  But you have to have something goin’ on to be asked to join the greatest rock ‘n roll band in the world — and say, “no.”

Take a gander at Roy Buchanan live in Austin, Texas circa 1976. The whole thing is a wonder but particularly so around the 5:40 mark.
