The great B.B.King passed away on 5/15/15. He played Pat’s song ’Double Guatemala’ on Gary Burton’s cd Six Pack. which features great guitar player - but Pat only as composer. He never recorded this song, there are only bootleg versions sometimes also called Carla’s Groove. Did Pat actually ever paly with B.B. King?

Bookmark and Share When I think of all of the guitarists that inspired me in the early days--Duane Allman, Toy Caldwell, Dickie Betts, Hendrix, Jimmie Page (you can REALLY hear the B.B. influence on those early records), the list goes on and on and of course includes B.B. King himself. But they were all inspired by B.B. King and you can directly hear it in their playing and it kind of flows through and informs and influences every lick. The whole bending, singing, wailing thing goes right back to B.B. May he rest in peace.

Bookmark and Share Not sure if Pat ever played with the King of the Blues, but if he didn’t he’s about the only notable guitarist who didn’t. I was lucky to see him with his traveling Blues Review in 99 with Tower of Power, Indigenous and Kenny Wayne Sheppard. At the time he was sitting but still had it together and had everyone in the palm of his hand. What a career, what a legend. RIP BB.
