I love these guys i was just wondering if anybody else listened to em?

they wrote alot of great tunes that have been covered more commercially, like "key to the highway" which derek and the dominoes did and "people get ready" which jeff beck did with rod stewart

They didnt write either of those songs. Not to be a jerk, but please know your facts before making statements like that. It only makes you look bad.

They are amazing. One of my favourite blues groups..duos..w/e period.

I've made a few threads on them before but they tend to die without a single post .
I really like their last recordings too when they played with a full band.

i'm probably the only one (on this thread) to be able to say that i saw them play.

it was around 1965 at birmingham town hall in the UK, they were headlining a blues concert. i really don't remember who else was on, i only really went to see terry & mcghee, legendary stuff.
I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes.

I wish their music was more accesible these days. "Walk On" is great song as well.

I have an interesting story about these guys...

A while back my (ex)girlfriend's mom dated Brownie. When he was in town we'd
get together with him, have dinner, go backstage to his shows. I really liked his
playing -- I wish I was better at the time Id have liked to jam with him which I
never did.

Anyway, one interesting tidbit is that Brownie and Sonny absolutely LOATHED
each other. I mean hated. The didn't say a word to each other. When you knew
this, you could really see it on stage. Whenever Sonny overdid his harp Soloing,
you could see a look of disgust crossing Brownie's face.... kinda funny.

The coolest thing I experienced was going to a show they were playing front for
Doc & Merle Watson. We got to hang backstage with them. Doc and Merle and
Brownie started up an impromptu jam back there. Very cool.

^That's really cool that you got to meet them, and that closely. And since when did they hate each other? I never would have guessed that.
#10
I don't know when the hate started, but they'd already been playing together
a long time. This was around 1978 or so. You might want to look through some
of those you tube vids to see if you notice it. They were professional about it,
but they didn't say a word to each other unless they had to.
#12
They did hate each other by the end. They were really tight though for their first many years together.
