I only saw him play twice but he blew my mind. That guitar sound was from a different planet.

I wish Zoot would come and play that long lunar note for me one more time. I’d die happy!

Captain Beefheart was the best band on the planet and Zoot the best guitarist (apart from Jimi). I saw them at the Rainbow in 1973 and they were amazing. So exciting!

You’re a genius Bill – where-ever you are!

  1. That’s a heck of claim. It wasn’t so much Rollo, but his equipment, the pickups used on his guitar in particular that got the sound, probably SGs that got that sustained resonance. Also Slide playing doesn’t need the playing ability of a 10-finger player, Hendrix as the example. He was a good player, but the best?

I'd like to hear from you...
