Snooks Eaglin

People make a lot of stupid lists about guitar players but if your list doesn’t feature Rory Gallagher, Snooks Eaglin or Hubert Sumlin, then your list isn’t worth a light.

Here’s a man who could play anything, the Human Jukebox! With more styles than a fashion catalogue, Snooks Eaglin really had it in spades. His live performance guitar was hot like a firebrand and chock full of grit, cajun flavour and soul! Low down acoustic, street style, cookin’ grooves, swing, shuffle, a touch of hoodoo…No one’s gotta right hand like this cat.
