Lonnie Mack. Double Whammy. 1986.

If you can ignore Stevie Ray Yawn for a minute, take a gander at the pickin' performed by Lonnie Mack. In an interview in MOJO, Jeff Beck claimed that he could hear a lot of Lonnie in Jimmy Page's playing. That makes sense, as they toured together in 1969 while Lonnie played guitar for the Doors. They had one other thing in common, they all detested Jim Morrison's drunk ass. I happen to agree.
