A Tribute To Rock Guitarists
24 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Guitar greats discuss their instrument, and other artists, in this interesting segment of the History Of Rock 'n Roll series. It was interesting to me because I love a good guitar sound, which is one reason I am big fan of the blues as well as rock.

Les Paul is not a name young people probably recognize but he is noted here as the pioneer of electric guitar. What a difference in sounds between Paul and rockers of the '50s up to the next decade, culminating with Jim Hendrix! That guy is still being imitated today and few people could ever do that. One was Stevie Ray Vaughan, but he's been gone for awhile, too.

Anyway, it's always great to hear Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Keith Richards and those guys from the '60s who are still going strong, along with blues great B.B. King and rock greats Mark Knopfler and Jeff Beck. That's just a handful mentioned here in this 45-minute program. Man, you could go on for hours about all the great guitar players over the last half century.

Note: this is non-rated but for those who might have younger kids watching this, two of the guitarists use the f-word while someone else (Eddie VanHalen?) mentions "getting pussy." Well, I'm sure rock guitarist have no problem in that area!

Overall this is an entertaining look and listen. If you buy or rent this, remember it was made in the mid '90s so guitarists who have made a name for themselves wouldn't be included here.
