Roy Buchanan has long been considered one of the finest, yet criminally overlooked guitarists of the blues rock genre whose lyrical leads and use of harmonics would later influence such guitar greats as Jeff Beck, his one-time student Robbie Robertson, and ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons.
The Rolling Stones wanted him to replace Brian Jones, and Eric Clapton asked him to play the guitar for Derek & The Dominos – but he turned down both offers. He moved to Los Angeles when he was a teenager and played in the band Heartbeats with Spencer Dryden (who later became the drummer of Jefferson Airplane). After this, he went on tour with Dale Hawkins and played with Robbie Robertson (The Band) who described Buchanan as one of his main influences.
Live at Rockpalast captures a live performance recorded for the German rock series Rockpalast on February 24, 1985 in Hamburg. It is a performance that shows Buchanan’s genius on the guitar in an extremely unique way – especially with his brilliant covers by artists including Jimi Hendrix or Don Gibson. It is no secret, however, that Roy Buchanan was particularly able to present his outstanding talents during his live performances – most of which were unfortunately not recorded.
