The Thrill of It All

Gibson has an overdue list of 10 Guitar Greats Who've Been Unduly Neglected, the list being:

Terry Kath
Ollie Halsall
Luther Grovenor
June Millington
Phil Manzanera
Lenny Breau
Jimmy Nolen
Randy California
Robert Quine
Bob Stinson

Amen, especially for Kath, California and Manzanera.  I might also add Peter Green, Kim Simmonds and Rory Gallagher.

The article hints that maybe you need a larger-than-life personality to get all the attention.  Maybe.  Maybe it was the tunes, the bands, the PR, the hair …

It certainly wasn’t the licks
