You got some dirty people in all walks of life. Look at the politicians and people like that. Look at the things they have to cover up and sweep under the rug, and why in the hell should a musician be any better? - Johnny Shines, in Sounds Good To Me by Barry Lee Pearson

New Bukka White book - "The Legend of Booker's Guitar"
« on: March 24, 2015, 12:27:00 PM »
Just a quick heads-up for those who may be interested in a new book about the legendary country blues singer/guitarist (and sometimes pianist  ;)) Bukka White.

The book is titled "The Legend of Booker's Guitar" and more information can be found here:

Thanks,

For any Weenie who would like to own a piece of history Bukka?s 1933 National is up for auction on 13th March. This will take place at UK guitar auctions in Bath.
It has a very reasonable reserve set at between ?80k to ?120k. See you all there.

Nice web presence for the auction with a lot of background and story:
https://guitar-auctions.co.uk/portfolio-post/booker-t-washington-white-a-1933-national-duolian-hard-rock-resonator-guitar/

Interested to see how much it goes for in the end.

Looking at the prices that David Gilmour's Christie's auctions is trying to achieve, I find the estimate to be quite optimistic (unless of course, a prominent celebrity guitar player millionaire wants a piece of Blues history). For comparison, Gilmour's "Black Strat" is on sale, with an estimate of $100k to $150k, and arguably this is a much more widely know legendary holy guitar grail than Bukka's old National.

Let's see how it goes...
