GUITAR GREAT JAVIER VARGAS ON ROCK-IT SCIENCE
GUITAR GREAT JAVIER VARGAS ON ROCK-IT SCIENCE By Greg Lewis
Listen on-demand

During the evening of April 4th,
'Rock-it Science' host Greg Lewis spoke with Spain's guitar-great Javier Vargas via phone from Vargas's home in Spain. Most
would agree that Javier is one of the world's elite guitarists. His latest release
"VARGAS BLUES BAND & COMPANY" is a 20 year retrospective of the
band loaded with superstar guests like Jack Bruce, Junior Wells, Larry Graham,
Devon Allman and many others including elite players from Spain's blues
community.
The official website vargasbluesband.com contains a video clip of Carlos
Santana showering praise on Javier as he joins Santana onstage in Madrid. The comparisons to Carlos are easy to understand but Santana points out that while
they do play all the same notes, Javier mixes the ingredients his own way.
