REQUIEM for FREDDIE ROULETTE by Henry Kaiser on #neuguitars #blog #henryKaiser #FreddieRoulette

with Henry Kaiser, Merl Saunders, Sonny Sharrock, Mike Cooper, Scott Colby, Ramon Goose, Ken Emerson, Elliott Sharp, + more. “Freddie Roulette was a giant of an innovator on his instrument: the lap steel guitar. As a creative musical prodigy, I’d put him on a par with folks such as: Thelonius Monk, McCoy Tyner, Speedy West, John McLaughlin, Jim Hall, Albert Collins, Evan Parker, Jerry Garcia, etc. Freddie was a hero of mine before I ever took up the guitar. I feel so fortunate and blessed that I had so many opportunities to play music together with him.” – Henry Kaiser
