Roy Buchanan on being asked to join the Stones, his fave guitarists, and Jeff Beck’s dedication to him


By Steve Newton

On January 26, 1986, I did my first interview with guitar legend Roy Buchanan.

He was coming to Vancouver for a show at the Town Pump, so I called him up at his hotel in Salt Lake City and got the scoop.

In this particular excerpt we talked about him being asked to join the Rolling Stones, his new album for Alligator Records, his favourite guitarists, and Jeff Beck dedicating “Cause We’ve Ended as Lovers” to him.

Have a listen:
