I can only think of Yngwie Johann Malmsteen, if not him then I don't know. Perhaps Frank Marino.

Easy Johann Sebastian. We posted at the same time. His came up first.

Obscure, thinking totally obscure. Not much success, 1972 replaced Clapton. Now, I'm thinking about the Hendrix giving the "Pink Lady" to Billy Gibbons. It's not Joe Satriani, he was raised in America. I bet it's some Japanese artist that I've never heard of.

Yngwie Johann Malmsteen

Yngwie was 9 years old in 1972 :whome:

 

 

 

I guess I don't understand the question .......... :unsure:

 

Are we talking about a music publication (Rolling Stone, Creem, Melody Maker, etc) that awards an annual "Best Musician" honor .......... with Clapton having won the award every year (up to 1972) all the way back to his Cream days ???

 

How about ........... Rory Gallagher

CheapTrick you're good.

 

This is why I was thinking Yngwie : Malmsteen was born on June 30, 1963, as the first child of a musically talented family in Stockholm, Sweden. At age seven, he saw a television news report on the death of Jimi Hendrix. To quote his official website, "The day Jimi Hendrix died, the guitar-playing Malmsteen was born". At the age of 10 he took his mother's maiden name Malmsten as his surname, slightly changed it to Malmsteen, and Anglicised his given name Yngve to "Yngwie". Wikipedia.

If you guys get a chance, seek out Rory's late-1960s band, Taste -- one of Ireland's first hard rock bands. Good stuff :thumbsup:

In his years after taste think you might enjoy "Tatoo" or just check the video on you tube "Cradle Rock" or just about any other song by Rory

Taste pre-dated Thin Lizzy by three years ... Taste from Cork, Thin Lizzy from Dublin.

 

Although Thin Lizzy developed into one in the greatest (and criminally underrated) bands in Rock & Roll history, Taste's sound was much heavier than Thin Lizzy's circa 1969-1970.
