Music Czar Monday

20 years ago this Friday the world lost one of it's most amazing talents. So this weeks MCM is dedicated to the greatest White boy to ever pick up a guitar. And since the name of his band was Double Trouble.... There are so many awesome songs to chose from, but I went with two of my all time favorites. I couldn't find the versions of these songs that I wanted. I wanted the tracks from the 3 disk SRV boxset, but I think the ones I picked should be okay. Oh, and Happy Birthday to me as well.

Listen to the way he played. SRV could tear it up like no one else. This might just be the best song he did.

I hope this one has the amazing bass the one I wanted does. It's just this nasty, heavy riff that Tommy Shannon doesn't so much play as he brings to life.
