Lonnie Mack – Why? (1963)

Lonnie McIntosh (July 18, 1941 – April 21, 2016), better known by his stage name Lonnie Mack, was an American rock, blues, and country singer-guitarist. As a featured artist, his recording career spanned the period from 1963 to 1990. He remained active as a performer into the early 2000s.
Mack played a major role in transforming the electric guitar into a lead voice in rock music. Best known for his 1963 instrumentals, “Memphis” and “Wham!”, he has been called a rock-guitar “pioneer” and a “ground-breaker” in lead guitar soloing. In these, and several other early guitar instrumentals, “he attacked the strings with fast, aggressive single-string phrasing and a seamless rhythm style”. These tunes are said to have formed the leading edge of the virtuoso “blues rock” lead guitar genre.
According to Guitar World magazine, Mack’s early solos influenced every major rock-guitar soloist from the 1960s through the 1980s, from “Clapton to Allman to Vaughan” and “from Nugent to Bloomfield”. Guitarists who have named Mack as a major influence include Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jeff Beck, Dickie Betts, Ray Benson, Bootsy Collins and Ted Nugent.
Mack is also considered one of the finer “blue-eyed soul” singers of his era.Wikipedia
