Lonnie Mack is a roadhouse blues-rock legend -- modern rock's first true guitar hero. His playing has influenced the course of rock and roll and had an impact on many of modern rock's current guitar heroes, including Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Jimmy Page and especially Stevie Ray Vaughan. His early music bridged the gap between '50s rockabilly and the psychedelic blues-rock of the following decade, and, like the best rock and roll, his work continues to embody a mixture of white and black roots music. Rock, blues, soul and country -- Lonnie brings them all together for a sound that has been all his own for nearly thirty years. His Alligator Records release, Live! Attack Of The Killer V, features material from the entire span of Lonnie's career. Included are live versions of some of his earliest songs from the Fraternity label as well as material from his Alligator and Epic recordings and two newly written compositions. Recorded at one of Chicago's hottest clubs and co-produced by Lonnie and Alligator president Bruce Iglauer, the album is Lonnie's first-ever live recording. Playing with Lonnie on the record is his long-time associate, keyboardist Dumpy Rice, as well as a crack young rhythm section.
