Saturday Matinee: AmIdol O NOES + Animation, Danny Gatton, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Buddy Guy

by

When you’re an 11-year-old girl at a sleep over, watching the results of “American Idol,” some things matter A LOT. [via Woosk.]

This is kinda cool, even though it’s contrived and the music drips with lameosity. Combines Picasso, Dali, Van Gogh and Escher imagery.

Thanks a wad to TR Commenter Breon for reminding me of the late great Danny Gatton. Here’s a kickass medley of Sun Records hits, in typical out-of-sync Utoobage fashion.

But I remember Gatton for THIS incredible stunt. (Phil, y’all pane-tension?)

Here’s Bunk’s favorite pissed-off blues crank, from Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Shortly after Vaughan passed on, Buddy Guy fronted SRV’s band, Double Trouble, on Austin City Limits in 1991. Here’s his tribute version of “You Better Leave My Little Girl Alone”.

    FinPeng– Whatcha talkin’ ’bout, Willis?

    Phil– Re: the American Idol meltdown… Can’t please everyone. I thought it was pathetically funny, as did FinPeng. If y’all gonna be in the So. California area, gimme a heads up. Maybe get a slab of coldies on the patio and we can resolve the world’s problems while hosing down the cats.
