Davey Graham and Guitar Crazy
« Reply #1 on: December 23, 2008, 02:09:31 AM »
Davey Graham the British folk guitarist and songwriter has died of cancer aged 68.

Graham was highly influential but also disappeared through personal problems- The Times obituary makes a good comparison with Peter Green the guitarist of the original (and then excellent) Fleetwood Mac.  His most famous composition was Angi, covered by Simon and Garfunkel.

And a very young Graham can be seen in Ken's early documentary Guitar Crazy playing Cry Me a River, the best musical piece in Ken's film.

If you want to hear more of Graham the best CD is All That Moody.
