Roy Buchanan by Phil Carson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


From the birth of rock 'n' roll to his puzzling death in 1988, guitarist Roy Buchanan forged a wildly emotive style melding blues, country, jazz, and rock 'n' roll. With a genius for expression that ranged from explosive to heartbreaking, and an astonishing arsenal of techniques, Buchanan was on the road to fame in 1957 - at age 17. But this enigmatic, demon-chasing guitarist became a reluctant superstar, and even turned down an offer to join the Rolling Stones. Revealing his driving forces, this vivid narrative zeroes in on Buchanan's odyssey through America's honky-tonks and beer joints, where he played free from the trappings of fame. It is a bittersweet portrayal of an American guitar hero who thrived simply for the next opportunity to rock.
