She was a guitar prodigy at 4 years old. Keith Richards, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Johnny Cash, and more site Sister Rosetta as an influence.
Bad video sorry. This is my favorite Sister Rosetta performance. You really see her burn up the guitar. I wish the video was better but the sound is ok.
I really love Sister Rosetta (and I'm not religious). Her performance, passion and the amazing guitar skills.
I haven't seen many clips of her. Only about 5 that I know of. If you know of any DVDs, VHSs, Documentaries, Television Shows, Movies, Rock, Jazz, Blues or Gospel Festivals,... anything where she performed and there might be a recording available, please tell me the title in the comments. If you can't remember the title, tell me anything you can remember, like: it was a Gospel Concert in the Opry sometime in the 70's, when she was performing with Marie Knight... I'll try to track it down and make a clip. Thanks.
