No one, I mean no other modern-era electric-blues guitarist, including Hendrix and all the great Brits, could ever match Mike Bloomfield's interpretation of, and execution of electric-blues-rock playing. His unique blues-phrasing, note-choice, unorthodox scales, sustain, tremolo and tone emanate from inspiration and blues-feeling from deep within his soul. Very few, if any, have ever duplicated his craft. No one has surpassed it. Michael was a tortured and tormented soul, and his playing reflects it. Turn down the lights, close your eyes, crank it up and listen intently. You'll be in tears within seconds after one measure of that incredible sustain and vibrato.... R.I.P. brother.
