If Trouble Was Money

Albert Collins -AKA “Razor Blade” Collins and the “Master of the Telecaster” on is 1966 Custom Fender Telecaster with a Gibson PAF humbucker in the neck position and a 100 watt RMS silverfaced 1970s Fender Quad Reverb combo kickin’ the blues.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Collins was known for a sense of humor –  in the film documentary, Antones: Austin’s Home of the Blues. Collins left the building, still plugged in and playing. Several minutes after Collins returned to the stage, a pizza delivery man came in and gave Collins the pizza he had just ordered when he left the building. Collins had gone to Milto’s Pizza & Pasta through an adjoining alley and ordered while he was still playing.
