Thanks for all your advice on who to listen to. As you may or may not know, I'm a recent Blues convert from the UK. If you get time please look up STAN WEBB and his CHICKEN SHACK. Stan is a truley unbelievable guitarist, been playing for nearly 40 years and is proberbly the best live act i've ever seen. And what a voice!!! (never had chance to see Allman Brohers yet).
His new album is call "still live after all these years". It's well worth adding to any collection.


Look him up, download and enjoy. Let me know what you think.

Leighton.

Christine McVie( Perfect at the time) was a member of this great little Brit Blues band at one time, no? About the same time Fleetwood Mac were a good blues band.

That's right, many years ago. She originally sang on Stan's classic, "I'd Rather Go Blind"
She then lefth the band to join Fleetwood Mac and left Stan and the rest of the Chicken Shack to concentrate on the good stuff. Please check him out.

There's a couple of nice CS compilations that were released about a year or so ago.

And he was in one of my favorite Savoy Brown configuarations, Boogie Brothers. What a great CD that is.

Since you ask for opinions, Leighton..........

I saw SW at Hammersmith last year supporting John Mayall and Mick Taylor.
Whatever else Stan is, I don't think he's a great guitarist. He spent most of the time singing and didn't take many solos.

When he went and in one of the (many) empty seats in the stalls to sing "Rather Go Blind" he made me laugh, though!

He may well have been drunk. Bit of a character is Stan Webb.
