Get a glimpse of Raitt’s mesmerizing, blues-infused picking power
in these videos ranging from 1976 to 2005.
John Lee Hooker and his protégé work up such a sweat that Raitt says, “Somebody
better get this man a towel” during this performance for Hooker’s John Lee Hooker &
Friends 1984-92 DVD.
A young, charismatic Raitt wields the double-threat of a velvety voice and a thicksounding
ES-175 with uncanny soulfulness.
Raitt calls fellow blues crusader Keb’ Mo’ “funky as hell” as they trade flirty, smokin’
licks at the Trump Taj Mahal Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in 2005.
