He's stacked previous line-ups of this festival so much that it's hard to get many/any significant first time appearances on the bill. But who would argue with a repeat viewing of those names?

But since it is in Chicago, surely Buddy Guy should be on the list too?

No Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi or Johnny Winter.

"An artist never really chooses when and where they will play.It is for promoters to make offers.It comes down as to whether tours are financially viable." Quote John Mayall.

I was lucky enough to be at the crossroads guitar festival back in 07 and it indeed was a great day ....was lucky enough to meet buddy guy as well in legends bar the evening before and show him my tattoo of himself on my left arm .....He was slightly embarrassed but honoured none the less ...we were supposed to tee up another meeting so he could sign my arm and complete the work but alas my flight left for london was leaving and he was late getting there ... Bluesfest will finally see my tattoo be completed when we meet again or that's the plan at least ...got a little bit of subject there ..sorry people ....If you're able attend crossroads ..you will not be disapointed

But at least the line to the ladies would have been rather short.
