All time fave guitarist
When I was teenager in the 70's, the guitar was king. Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Duane Allman, Eric Clapton and Steve Howe.
What separated Steve from the rest was his ability to blend country, classical, jazz, blues and rock. He sound was unique and original.
Everyone else pulled from the same Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, Skip James playbook.
Steve was more like Les Paul. Blending everything he heard.
That's why he remains my biggest influence on guitar.
Listen to Siberian Khatru, Going For The One and Austrailia.
