          He was doing the Guitar Hero thing years before Beck, Page and Clapton. His influence was tremendous, but a lot of players are, sadly, still unfamiliar with his work.

            Love the Flying V used in blues, but I am one of those who is not very familiar with Lonnie Mack's catalog. Maybe I'll "discover" him posthumously. RIP, Mr. Mack.
