Time for another posting. OK, this guy is contemporary -- and timeless!
Namely Ry Cooder, one of the greatest guitarists, period.
Great scene in the movie "Paris, Texas"... the ruined face and figure of Harry Dean Stanton walking through the heat-shimmering desert, with rattlesnake tangy guitar licks as background music, supplied by Mr. Cooder.
A haunting desert scent, mysterious and evocative: Ouazarzate by Comme des Garcons.
