13 was a singer too.
A jazz pianist associated with people like John Zorn.
never heard his name before but looked up the cast of musicians who appeared on Treme and the one most likely is John Boutté
Oh, that makes it easy, just need to check John Zorn's discography...
is # 1 Duane Eddy wrong ?
Is #20 Al Wilson from Canned Heat?
Only 4 now:
1 plays a Stratocaster in the picture, but he was a master of the Telecaster sound.
12 is an American singer-songwriter. She sang to Venezuela.
13 was a rock & roller (al least at the beginning of his career) born in Memphis.
19 is a jazz pianist associated with people like John Zorn
#30 Abdul Fakir from the 4 Tops?
Yes, Eddy wasn't a singer.
20 and 30 are already solved: Kim Simmonds and Billy Strayhorn.
roy buchanan ? but don't think he sang much either
#13 Gene Vincent?
Musical / clue interlude
Excuse me. I was thinking in 13!
Of course is Roy Buchanan
13 is Johnny Burnette
Physically, he looks more like Eddy and I got wrong. Sorry about that. It's my first time.
The hat threw me.
And the guitar?
On this one the ones I've met are 1, 5, 7, 18, and 21.
He went through a few guitar changes during the last half decade or so of his career, but I didn't know he went cowboy. When I saw him he was using a horrid Guild Tele-copy with a pointy headstock and EMG pickups. Through TWO JC-120 amps. Ouch. Bright. Bright.
19 is a jazz pianist born in Philadelphia, associated with people like John Zorn, although he also has a great solo career.
12 is an actual American singer-songwriter. She sang to Venezuela. She lives in New Orleans (I think she still does).
"With Fred about to depart, the pressure to hold up my end on lead guitar was mounting. My youth and limited experience made Ron nervous about my taking over this responsibility. So he decided to try out someone else: a top-flight Arkansas guitar slinger named Roy Buchanan who, like Fred, had played with Ron’s cousin Dale Hawkins. I had no choice but to roll with the punches, though when Roy showed up in Toronto with just a Fender Esquire guitar and a small duffel bag, I thought the Lone Ranger had never looked this solitary. He plugged into a small amp we had at the hotel and proceeded to blow our minds. Roy had more tricks up his sleeve than Houdini: his fast runs and extreme string bending, his rhythm and soloing at the same time, like it was two guitars. The thrilling part was that he didn’t mind showing me things in slow motion, quite the opposite of Fred. Roy would play something amazing, break it down for me piece by piece, and then hand me his guitar. I began hoping we could both fit into the next incarnation of the Hawks. I wasn’t overly naive: I knew this could mean I’d be out of a job—Ron might not want two guitar players. But right then it didn’t concern me. Just being around somebody that good lifted me up.
Soon after Roy arrived, though, Ron observed there was something a bit demonic in his eyes, and in his nature. The suspicion was confirmed when one day, out of the blue, Roy confessed to us, “I’m half human and half wolf.” We all stared at him. “And sometimes it’s a problem, especially late at night when there’s a full moon.”
“Why? What happens?” I asked. Sure, Roy did look more bohemian than us, with his goatee and pasted-down hair, but a wolf?
“Well,” said Roy gravely, “sometimes I wake up in the night howling from a nightmare. One time there was blood on my beard, and in the bed.”
“That sounds like a werewolf to me,” Ron teased.
“Right. Same thing.” Roy then declared that he’d made a vow to marry a nun; only then would his wild ways be settled. I heard later he actually did marry a former nun. But Ronnie wasn’t willing to wait for that day. I recognized the expression on his face when something got too far out for his liking. “That ****’s too damn weird for me,” he finally declared".
