Bonnie Raitt, Blues


Quando pensamos em grande guitarristas, sempre pensamos em homens. As mulheres também detonaram suas guitarras. Contudo, na lista de 100 melhores guitarristas da Rolling Stone, há apenas duas mulheres: Joni Mitchell e Bonnie Raitt. Creio que esta lista deva ser reavaliada, pois não é possível que Joan Jett, LitaFord, entre muitas outras estejam de fora. Na lista da Paste, Bonnie Raitt é a primeira.

Bonnie Lynn Raitt (born November 8, 1949) is an American blues singer-songwriter and slide guitar player. During the 1970s, Raitt released a series of roots-influenced albums which incorporated elements of blues, rock, folk and country. In the 1990s she had a major return to form with the release of her album "Nick of Time" after several years of critical acclaim but little commercial success. The following two albums "Luck of the Draw" and "Longing in Their Hearts" were also multi million sellers generating several hit singles including "Something to Talk About", "Love Sneakin' Up on You", and the beautiful ballad "I Can't Make You Love Me" (with Bruce Hornsby on piano). Raitt has received ten Grammy Awards. She is listed as number 50 in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time and number 89 on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.

  1. I already own Bonnie's latest few CDs, as well a the 2 cd collection prior to Nick of Time. Still have a few of the older vinyl, but they are stored away. So it's nice to be able to grab the 1st one to listen to, as I'll be seeing her on upcoming Canadian dates in June!

    Thanx for the share!
