    Hi Peter
    Pink Fairies had a very diverse lineup....I think the lead here is Larry Wallis.......just short of Clapton or Hendrix......I disagree....not even in their class.
    I reckon it's very much Dave Hole or Roy Buchanan.
    But this thread could get real ugly, 'cause guitar kings are in the ear of the beholder !!

    I regret starting this thread now (one over the eight) but what the heck. Paul Rudolf http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-x5b0JEnYM

    I think I saw every PF line up but that was well back in the last century when I had hair, no glasses, ingested certain chemicals and could credibly attend a concert. They were unbelievable. And loud - a friend was sitting in the Feathers pub in Basingstoke when they started up in the town hall opposite. His pint vibrated off the table almost immediately. Surprisingly I can still hear

    Hmm.....so your obviously biased toward PF as an adoring fan !!
    I saw Clapton in Brisbane, Australia...and was completely awestruck....I never realised how appropriate the term "slowhand" was until I saw him.
    Another I did like live was Mark Knopfler, he plays a beautiful steel.
    I know what you mean though....older, wiser, glasses, no hair......!!
    But look on the up side.......the govt is starting to give us our money back (pensions)

    Yes, Mark Knopfler is a very underrated guitarist.
    Just listen to Sultains of Swing....My favorite song of all time..

    I don't ever recall hearing PF before, but after listening to a few..
    Yes the guitarist is pretty good, but not in the same class as Clapton or Hendrix.

    There's more to playing guitar than just picking fast...

    Clapton has to be the best at the Blues.
    Knows exactly when and how hard to hit each note.
    Slow Hand is a very appropriate nickname indeed.


    Although I do think Hendrix is a bit overrated...Ducking to avoid beer bottles thrown at me..
    He's one of the best for sure, but I think he gets allot of "Extra Credit" because everyone thinks he plays the guitar upside down.
