Slide Guitar Ride

A documentary film about Rock‘n‘Roll and being on the road. Bob Log III is a one-man band from Tucson, Arizona. He plays live in an azure-blue, close-fitting wrestling outfit, wearing a motorcycle helmet with an in-built telephone receiver that serves as a microphone. He plays „speed delta on blues“ guitar with his hands and drums and kick cymbals with his feet. Bob Log III performs over 200 concerts a year around the world: in backyards, laundromats or large concert halls. He releases his records on the renowned label Fat Possum, which is dedicated to the Blues, and he is meanwhile a star in Japan.
