Mr Noble's statement has got me thinking...I can only assume that "Guitar Lover's Festival from Hell" means we'll have lots of good/great guitarists?

So, with that in mind, I'm hoping for (among others):

Dave Matthews (w/ DMB or w/ Tim Reynolds or both)
Tim Reynolds (w/ DMB or w/ Dave or both)
Mark Knopfler
David Gilmour
Trey Anastasio (w/ Phish)
Warren Haynes (w/ Gov't Mule)
Robert Randolph
Pat Metheny
John Mayer (ie his Trio)
Neil Young
B B King (is he well enough? Don't want to kill the man!)
Jeff Beck (w/ Vinnie and Tal, ideally)
Santana (w/ Dennis driving the bus)
Tom Morello (Rage wouldn't work but Nightwatchman would be good)
John McLaughlin (any which way please)
John Scofield
Vernon Reid (w/ Living Colour, would tear the place apart)
Derek Trucks
Susan Tedeschi
Walter "Wolfman' Washington

How am I going Peter?

Johnny Winter, if he is well enough to travel.

Surely with Peter's opinion that Buddy Guy is the greatest ever (if I remember that 'debate' correctly) he must be in the mix.

Add to that that PNoble also once quoted Micheal Franti's Bass Player as saying that John Mayer was the greatest young blues guitarist 'out there' at the time (it ws '07 I think) he must be pretty high on the list.

Can I dare to dream for Johnny Lang???

Oh and I am completely in agreeance that Tim Reynolds should make an appearance... Genius is the only word to describe him.

Yes I do remember Peter saying that Buddy was a very good chance for next year.

I would also like to see again Cool John Ferguson with the Muscic Maker Foundation.

Cheers.

Agree. Had a memorable interaction with John and Adolphus Bell 3 years ago, as they were arriving to do an 11am interview at the Byron Radio station. They tried to persuade me to hang out with them for the day (which sounded like fun) but they were drunk from the night before and I'm not that kind of groupie! Anyway, they went on to play a quality set later that arvo and I've had their CD on high rotation ever since. Love a band who are each excellent musicians in their own right.

Cool John Ferguson lifted the lid off Jambalaya a couple of years ago. He closed his show with a version of Johnny B Good that was worth the price of admission on its own. Bring him back please!

You stole my list [:

Trumpet bells ringing
Bass drum is swinging
As the trombone groans
And the big horn moans

Hear hear....

Bela and the Flecktones are awesome and Victor Wooten's skills must fall within the realm of Guitar-lover's festival, not to mention the fact that they must be the only band out there whose 'drummer' plays on a guitar (of sorts)!

And if they are here for BF maybe they'll be double-billing with DMB as Jeff Cotton seems to have taken a full-time role as their replacement saxophonist (RIP LeRoi)...

Bring on Easter 2010!!

Al DiMeola has announced an Australian tour in March 2010, finishing up in Newcastle on 29 March 2010 - only days before Bluesfest starts!

If we're talking great guitarists, they don't come much greater than this.
