Mars Needed Guitars; Delivers

More big name guitarists are showing up on than any other Central Illinois website, and for no apparent reason, except for the love of Rock and Roll. You can have your Hendrix, your Clapton and your Jeff Beck, but for my money the greatest guitarist of all time is Carl Wilson of the Beach Boys. Here he has at it with "Barbara Ann", and yes that is Brian Wilson standing up playing the Bass, his instrument on the early recordings.

As an added bonus, here's The Who with Pete Townshend a close second on world's greatest guitarist (and dancer) with their warm-up version of "Barbara Ann", with Keith Moon (looking every one of his 31 years) singing lead.

I forgot how great Moon looked at 31.

Looks like he's lived in Wapella since about 25.
