My daughter, Cass, posted on my facebook wall today and included a YouTube video of Eric Clapton’s My Father’s Eyes. When we lived close Cass and I often went out for breakfast together, sitting across from each other at a small restaurant, enjoying the food and each others’ company, and talking for hours. Occasionally we would end up having lunch, too.
The Clapton song got me thinking about my top ten favorite guitarists of all time, in no particular order, though I do consider Clapton to be the absolute ultimate. Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, BB King, Chuck Berry, Jimmy Page, Carlos Santana, Duane Allman, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Keith Richards, and Jeff Beck.
