And, Dick Dale (b.1937) and a more "out there" guitarist than Duane Eddy is also still breathing.

Here's a story on Dick Dale, talking about his myriad health issues. http://www.pghcitypa...ent?oid=1843341

 

Wow, it sounds like he could drop dead any minute, but he needs to continue playing for the money, so he'll probably die on stage. But at least, he has a motivation to live on, that's always good for your life expectancy.

I knew this one as Mr Dale has toured the US as recently as a year ago. That said, and not from lack of trying, I've nay seen him to date. Along those lines, Buddy Guy is in town this weekend, but $60?!!! Looks like I'm passing. Go ahead call me a cheap fuck, but c'mon that's ridiculous.

It depends on who's paying. 10 years ago I paid a total of $54 to see B.B. King, Etta James, and Al Green.
If it's the Blues Festival that Buddy is playing in, the additional bands / acts might make the $60 seem a decent price to pay.

Oh sure a lineup like that would be super. No he's alone playing a casino holds maybe 1000-1500.
