The Rolling Stones
This record turned me onto the concept of rock 'n' roll being a perfect American hybrid of country music and blues music. Who's cooler than Keef?
Live at the Harlem Square Club
So much energy. So much swing. OK, Sam is cooler than Keef!
The Grand Tour
Greatest country singer of all time, hence the reason you never hear people copying him because they can't. His voice drops and turns like a pedal steel guitar.
This record turned me onto world music. Ry Cooder deserves everything for turning the world onto these musicians.
This record changed my life. After I got this record I cut my hair like Joe Strummer's, bought a black leather motorcycle jacket and told my baseball coach: "Kiss my ass, I'm gonna be a guitar player!"
