We can get so passionate about the music and guitar we're into right now, we sometimes lose the big picture. I know I need to be reconnected with the roots every so often and I thought I'd share my latest wake-up call.

This video shook me by the collar. Evil or Very Mad Reminding me of the influence that hugely talented Otis Rush had on Fleetwood Mac.

Here's where it gets good. Some talented musicians forget the roots within Fleetwood Mac's long history. And might say, "Fleetwood Mac? Rolling Eyes Pop wankers."

All the more reason to nudge bandmates when ya get a chance and point em to the roots. Cuz whatever people think the Mac is, this is where Fleetwood Mac come from. Danny Kirwan's fuckin eighteen! Ya just can't forget after ya watch em play Otis Rush:

Great bit of footage there which I'd not seen before! I love Greeny, and Kirwin was ace too. It also goes to prove my theory that being a girl in the 60s meant you were awesomely attractive.

Like the way they feature Danny Kirwan while Peter Green's taking the first solo. Rolling Eyes
