That time I asked Buddy Miles how Carlos Santana rated compared to Jimi Hendrix

By Steve Newton

Everybody knows that it’s dumb to try and compare guitar players, and figure out who’s “best”.

But that didn’t stop me from asking Buddy Miles, when I interviewed him back in 2001, how he thought Carlos Santana rated compared to Jimi Hendrix. He’d recorded albums with both guitar legends in the seventies, so I figured he’d be as good a judge as any.

I also asked Buddy if there were any guitarists that he hadn’t played with that he wished he could, and his answer to that caught me a little off guard.

Have a listen:

Life And Fairytales

1,000 Stories Behind The Eyes

Only If life was like the Fairytales I read,

An amazing fantasy always came to mind.

Me an amazing and strong warrior on a horse riding into the town,

My boyfriend a vampire.

Best friends with a monkey,

Protecting all the creatures is my life.

Then I open my eyes,

I’m here I live In the real world.

I have to take life for what it really is,

Hello reality.

Music for a Friday Night

Published July 12, 2015 by Sherry Carroll

Thoughts by Mello-Elo

Right, I’m kicking off the evening with a classic. This is a song that brings back fond memories of me dancing to my dad’s guitar as he sang this song to us. I was the go-go girl and my brother accompanied my dad on guitar whilst my mum was the back-up singer and sometimes the percussionist! Fun around the BBQ or as we called it – the braai!
Hope you enjoy it!

The house of the Rising Sun

Another song comes to mind…

While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Please join me around the fire. What would you like to hear?
