Saturday Night Live Music: "Slippin' Out"

I saw Buddy Guy in the summer of either 1991 or 1992, soon after the comeback album this track was on, Damn Right I've Got the Blues came out. It was part of a big blues show at Snowbird ski resort in Utah, and B.B. King was headlining. But when King finally came on, it was an anti-climax; Guy had already burned the place down, having left the stage and wandered among the audience, his guitar wailing away. King just couldn't compete.
