It's very hard to believe [and disturbing!] to listen to some of the
negative [ignorant, fucking stupid] comments being made about Roy! just
sayin'.........just F--- Off if you don't like- don't be stupid!

I wish I would have seen him playing love his guitar screamin for mercy.
R.I.P. Roy

Автор Don Loughrey ( назад)
I saw him in a bar in '78 I think it was. About 200 people, he rocked the
house down. It is still one of the best shows I have seen,and I seen some
great ones. I was cleaning my car recently and was listening to Roy (loud)
when an old friend walked up said "I haven't seen you in 20 years and
you're still listening to the same fuckin' song." Thanks for posting this.

Bill graham misspoke, Roy was from Ozark, Arkansas. In NW part of state,
near Fayetteville.

Автор BloozeDaddy ( назад)
in spite of what Jerry Garcia said I don't think Roy was ever "super
fast"....and that's what guitar pickers loved about him...his soul was in
the notes....not the technique.

Автор Jeff Horsey ( назад)
Thanks for this.

Автор Justin Nizza ( назад)
Discovered him a few years back. A lot more interesting of a person than I

13:36 That's real nice, was this ever put on record?

There is no such thing as the greatest guitarist in the world. You have
Andres Segovia, Joe Pass, Chet Atkins, Mike Bloomfield, Jimi Hendrix,
Stevie Ray Vaughn, Steve Vai, Eddie Van Halen, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton,
Guthrie Trapp, Greg Koch, Robben Ford, Larry Carlton, Danny Gatton, Brent
Mason, Tommy Emmanuel, Jack Pearson, and a host of others. They all have
their own style. So, lets not have 5th grade arguments, about who's the
best. Instead, lets appreciate, enjoy and learn from them all.

Автор PlanetRockJesus ( назад)
His dentures were always coming loose. This is well known.

Автор Charles J Gartner ( назад)
nah... Danny Gatton is the greatest unknown guitarist. I remember hearing
of roy as a teenager... I think I had one of his albums on CD. Danny I
didn't hear of until my mid 20's at least.

Автор James Lumpkin ( назад)
ARKANSAS BOY.........played with Ronnie Hawkins & Levon Helm. Wish he would
have stayed & played with the Band F@#K Robbie!!!

Автор Pop Schlepp ( назад)
One might argue the same claim for Danny Gatton.

Автор Yukon Woman ( назад)
He would have to battle Danny Gatton and Terry Kath for the title.

Автор brandolf harpoon ( назад)
i wish it showed his hands at 2:48-2:51. wtf is going on.

Автор Doug Thompson ( назад)
Wikipedia says he was born in Ozark, Arkansas then moved to
California...not sure what Bill was thinking...Roy could definitely play a
guitar though...very big around the Baltimore Washington area for a while.

Автор TheDreamtheaterlover ( назад)
His version of Can I Change My Mind one of the greatest songs ever

I caught this myself back in the 70's. It wasn't the first time it came
out, but it showed me why I loved Roy so much. One of the BEST soooo many
never heard. He was like Graham A. Barnes in that he didn't enjoy the fame
part of music. RIP Chin Man.

I can remember the first time I heard Sweet Dreams on vinyl...I played it
over and over and someone didn't like that....oh well..

Unknown...? Hardly!!!

used to see him in the Crossroads bar when he played with the
Snakestretchers back in the late 60's

Автор Snuffy Smith ( назад)
17:34 That solo that he plays w/Merle Haggard....god damn.

Автор jason lowery ( назад)
sounds more like a blues guitarist, close to jimi hendrix with the howling
sound, maybe he should of went to the britain and return to the states like
jimi...people in the usa are a little behind on recognizing genius

Автор Freddy Walston ( назад)
anyone know the song at 13:31?

Автор Ross Howell ( назад)
I remember him from when I was a little, back then he was Le Roy Buchanan.
His father was a preacher and they lived close to us in Pixley California.
He had a cousin that played Fiddle and they would play in church. He has a
couple of sisters that still live in the area

"If you have it, ..you've got it." --- Well, Merle, I would counter, "If
you've not a' got it, ...you haven't had it."

Saw Roy playing at the Crossroads in Bladensburg, MD circa 1971. ONe of the
great music moments of my life. Roy was basically playing in a cover band
playing in a roadhouse bar. He wasn't even the front man. He did blazing
versions of The Thrill is Gone and Hey Joe, among others.I think he was
playing a dark green Tele. Just sat there eating soft-shell crabs, drinking
beer, and soaking up Roy. What a great night!

Greetings from DC !. I knew Roy and I knew Danny Gatton and worked for the
latter when I was in college. Gatton could piss rings around Roy Boy. And
in DC, Danny is still revered and Roy is Roy who? I can tell you more about
the PBS special , but who cares. Last, Roy was a very good guitar player,
but Gatton was a great guitar player. All of the best

totallu loving the clip at 17:53.. man roy had a sound!! Chk this out it
explains everything about his 1953 tele named "nancy"
the guy that recreated nancy was allowed to study roys tele and test the
pickups take pics and see the original wiring and caps also tuners

Автор Zarkmoon ( назад)
Caught him in a club in 1986-ish. Most jaw-dropping display of technical
guitar wizardry in the blues-rock genre I ever witnessed, and I've
witnessed a lot. He didn't connect emotionally in the same way many other
did Page, Vaughan, Santana, Garcia, others but the man was as connected to
his instrument as anyone I ever heard.

Автор penguin99ify (765 лет назад)
One of the greatest underrated players ever.

Автор joel quinn ( назад)
Rory Gallagher is better

Автор Keith Ninesling ( назад)
Tremendous reputation among guitar players, worldwide, for good reason,
but, virtually unknown to the General Public.

The most overlooked guitarist of the past 50 years.

There's certain aspects of his style that could have been better
considered, but, damn, no one ever, in the popular genres, understood the
instrument better.

First heard him around 1968, yet, he still impresses the Hell out of me.

Great attack and delicacy, super articulate. Awesome soul to his playing.
Masterful use of country and blues voicings. A genius, actually....

The sound from that guitar and how he played. Where have those days

Wow. I love my music, but never heard of Roy Buchanan until I saw The
Departed, heard the ending credits music and had to find out who did it. I
was blown away and continue to be.

I don't get it, why is there a documentary with scenes of his life and him
being interviewed if he was such an "unknown" guitarist?

Автор Anıl Toplar ( назад)
I discovered Roy from The Departed movie soundtrack about a seven years
ago,this film had blew my life away. And then,i found it and watched this
PBS and that is just fantastic what a humble giant musician. That man gave
me my inspiration on guitar playing and that was the major reason to bought
myself a telecaster. I love Roy Buchanan. greetings from istanbul.

dicen que en una oportunidad, alterno con los stones, y al terminar el
concierto, el líder vocal de esa agrupación, pregunto quien era ese
guitarrista, le informaron, ademas le dijeron donde se hospedaba, la
agrupación se fue al hotel, manifestando quienes eran y roy le dijo que
estaba descansando y no los atendió eso es lo que dicen, escuchen de roy
buchanan bajando por el rió, por lo menos para mi una de sus mejores
canciones saludos.

I saw him in a little club in Pittsburgh back in the 70's and he barely
moved, sometimes putting a cigarette in the top of his guitar neck and that
damn guitar talked the blues like I never saw before !!!

A bad ass player -one of the best ever -I love his playing !

I've been a Roy fan since the early '70's. No one pours out emotion through

that version of Sweet Home LA (chicago) was amazing with Roy's playing

Автор Harpgrindin ( назад)
Does anyone know if that's Muddy Waters' bass player, Calvin "Fuzz" Jones,
playing with Johnny Otis at the 23 minute mark? Those glasses and that face
looks just like him

Автор Harpgrindin ( назад)
Robert, watch as much of this guy as you can. Also go to the Live 1976
(Austin City Limits I think) here on youtube and watch him reach over and
grab a beer while blazin' that left hand. Incredible!

heroes ever!
great video...thanks a lot.

Автор Andrew Peachey ( назад)
I heard Roy in the late 70s and have been a fan ever since. He's still my
favourite tele player. He is so humble and makes it look so easy. Roy is
greatly missed. An absolute legend.

Автор Jamey McNutty ( назад)
just learning of Roy and gotta say his playing no doubt demands respect but
I really have to see a lot more before I agree with the claims. His
playing seems too technical and clean, very robotic and mechanical. I know
this is admirable but there are tons of session/studio musicians that are
exactly the same way. Don't get me wrong dude is awesome and I can't hold a
candle to him. I just can't feel the guy like I want to. With that said
....that's the worst case of blo-jaw I eva seen lol

Автор nigg mcmuffin ( назад)
I have the same last name as him and have been playing for 15 years, he is
still better than me.
