Roy Buchanan has been long overlooked for inclusion in the Hall of Fame. Perhaps because he didn't follow the usual path and avoided stardom, he is known as the ''best unknown guitarist in the world'' . His career spanned the late 1950s as a teenager until his early death 30 years later. He was undoubtedly the world's pre-eminent Telecaster exponent with an unmistakeable sound. Roy mentored Robbie Robertson and was the inspiration for countless guitarists. Martin Scorsese asked Robbie's musical advice for the movie ''The Departed''. He selected Roy's ''Sweet Dreams'' - the movie ends and the credits roll. I have listened to his ''Sweet Dreams'' thousands of times, and it never fails to bring out the emotions. I have asked my guitarist son to ''play it like Roy'' at my funeral.
