felser Posted March 4, 2020 Report Share Posted March 4, 2020 Buchanan did do some singing on some of his Polydor albums, but had absolutely no knack for it. Very very talented player. Very troubled human being with a huge drinking problem. He died in a jail cell in 1988, either by suicide or not, depending which story you choose to believe. I saw him in concert ca. 1986 at the Mann Music Center. He was third billed to Stevie Ray Vaughan and the Fabulous Thunderbirds (SRV older brother Jimmy Vaughan's group). Buchanan was impressive, much more so than the Thunderbirds, but Stevie Ray was amazing that night. Buchanan was one of those guys (Gary Moore was another), who had incredible guitar chops,and seemingly never quite knew what to do with them. You can get 150 minutes of prime 70's Buchanan playing for under $10 on this, and it's all you'll ever need by him. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
