The Authentic Experience
I'm in the initial stages of researching, and writing a biography of Guitar Hero, Roy Buchanan.
Known as "The Greatest Guitar Player You Never Heard Of" his playing was not only an influence , but a template for Blues, and Rock and Roll guitarists of his time, and to follow.
I plan on telling the story of his life of early poverty, learning "Black" music in the church, early recording successes, traveling the world playing, becoming the king of the small rooms, influencing CLAPTON, HENDRIX, JEFF BECK, RONNIE WOOD, KEITH RICHARDS, JIMMIE and STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN to tutoring ROBBIE ROBERTSON, to his cloudy and somewhat mysterious death in police custody in 1988.
"UNDER THE RADAR...The Times of Roy Buchanan"
If anyone out there MET, HAS AN AUTOGRAPH OF or Has a Story about him, please let me know.
