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.

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,
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…
