Once upon a time… there was a band that had to try to please everyone… did they please anybody?

First of all, you have to understand that I LOVE THIS BAND. In the way only a 15-16 year old girl can when she finds a band that is the” love of their life” and grew up playing all their early albums non-stop, till they were worn to nothing and we had to buy new copies. They literally changed my life because the one and only reason my best friend Nina and I started trying to get backstage at every single gig that came to the Capitol Centre was to be ready for Queen to get there. So we would know just how to meet our idols. It was all just practice for the big event. At first, at least. I had no way of knowing then that going backstage and…

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.
