Happy Birthday Tommy Bolin (1951-1976)

An amazingly versatile guitarist, who, like his idol Jimi Hendrix, died way too young. He followed in the footsteps of other great guitarists in James Gang and Deep Purple; but he was as good, if not better, than them. Witness his playing Billy Cobham's jazz fusion album Spectrum (below). I'm also including one video of a James Gang song, so you can see him perform.
