Albert Lee

His name, for me, has been associated with great guitarists from the moment I started to learn about rock music in my early teens.

Specifically Albert Lee had played alongside my hero Ritchie Blackmore on an anonymous LP called Green Bullfrog released in 1971 (I think mine was the 1980 reissue). I love it!

I'd also read that other musicians, especially guitarists, rated him as the best, a unique player with a tone and technique unequaled.

Imagine my happiness when I saw he was playing Monmouth's most excellent Savoy Theatre! In fact he's a local lad (an 80 year-old lad tbf) living just over the border in Herefordshire.
