James Armstrong's Guitar Angels Inspired By His Friends

02/25/2014
.
(The Blues) James Armstrong has named his fifth album Guitar Angels after the friends who helped him maintain his career following his serious arm injury in 1996.

He was the victim of a vicious assault when his home was broken into, and the permanent damage means he still only has limited movement on one hand. But thanks to the support of other musicians he's been able to keep making music - and his latest record was launched last week via Catfood Records.

Armstrong says: "Since my injury many guitar players, alive and dead, have helped me. I still am unable to bend the third finger on my left hand, or use my little finger, but I attribute some of the reason I'm actually able to play the guitar again to my 'guitar angels' - my father, James Armstrong Sr, Mike Ross, Coco Montoya and Joe Louis Walker." more on this story
