From that same show, I believe, my fave Roy jam. Kinda similar song themes, too  :P

He wasn't nearly that composed when I saw him at the Dog Gone Saloon in Spartanburg SC in 1988... He was on fire! He did Purple Haze too, and blew the roof off the place! And a couple months later, he was gone. That one bothered me a lot.

There’s a certain kind of magic that happens when you crank a Fender wide open. Roy embraced that! And then tried to blow it up!!

Saw him live exactly once. As best I can tell, he turned every knob on a Twin Reverb (mounted on a folding metal chair) to 10, then let it rip.....Aimed straight at us. The ladies in the party ran off to the bathroom and came back with toilet paper hanging outta their ears. He WAS great, but man alive....A Twin on 10 when he plays those licks off the end of the neck! It just screamed.

And it's not like a Tele is inherently bright anyway... 😂
