15 November 1954, Plano, Texas, USA. Funderburgh played blues guitar with several local bands and in 1981 recorded with the Fabulous Thunderbirds. He later formed his own band, the Rockets and signed to blues revivalist label Black Top in 1984. Funderburgh’s guitar pyrotechnics made the group a favourite at blues festivals, where they often performed with veteran harmonica player Sammy Myers (b. 19 February 1936, Laurel, Mississippi, USA). Myers also featured on Funderburgh’s studio releases, and in 1997 the partnership celebrated their tenth anniversary together. This is an unlikely partnership, primarily because of the considerable age difference. In addition to their working relationship, they are close friends. As Funderburgh stated to Art Tipaldi ‘we’ve both slung ourselves around to where we really compliment one another without whittling away at who we both are’.
