Travis Wammack !
I’m back from the anniversary dinner that Missus Frost organised (behind me back of course).
13 at my table. Hahahaha. Hope it wasn’t my last dinner (crucifixion ? on the right).
Anyway, thanx a fuckin’ bunch for all your kind words, emails and on and on (no Cherry, I’m not single) Awcmon , you’re all so swell and kind (if you’re mad, that’s ok too).
From my big black rock’n’roll heart, a huge thank you.
A guitarist, singer, and young instrumental genius from Memphis who cut his first record at the tender age of twelve, Travis Wammack is one of the great unheralded guitarists of rock & roll. A contemporary of Lonnie Mack, Wammack was simply the fastest guitar player in a town bursting at the seams with great guitarists. By the time he was 17, he appeared on the national charts with "Scratchy," a speed-burner instrumental featuring incredible distortion and dazzling technique. Several incredible singles followed, but none charted. By the late '60s, Wammack had moved into session work at the FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL, playing on countless hits. He continues recording and touring to the present day (recently working as musical director for Little Richard), his hot and speedy guitar chops intact.
