Travis Wammack (born 1946) is an American rock and roll guitarist from Memphis, Tennessee. A child prodigy, Wammack's first record was issued when he was twelve years old, and at 17 he hit the American charts with "Scratchy", an instrumental which peaked at #80 in 1964. Wammack got work recording at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals in the 1960s, and in 1975 released a solo album which generated two hits in the US, "Easy Evil" (#72) and "Love Being Your Fool" (#38). Wammack never stopped performing, working in the 1990s with Little Richard among others.
A guitarist, singer, and young instrumental genius from who cut his first record at the tender age of twelve, Travis Wammack is one of the great unheralded guitarists of rock & roll. A contemporary of Lonnie Mack, Wammack was simply the fastest guitar player in a town bursting at the seams with great guitarists. By the time he was 17, he appeared on the national charts with "Scratchy," a speed-burner instrumental featuring incredible distortion and dazzling technique. Several incredible singles followed, but none charted. By the late '60s, Wammack had moved into session work at the FAME Studios in , playing on countless hits. He continues recording and touring to the present day (recently working as musical director for Little Richard), his hot and speedy guitar chops
Travis Wammack is mostly known for his work in the 60's, instrumentals with fiery guitarworks and r&b infused rock. But he's made two great southern rock albums during the 70's. Both very much r&b influenced and both very much worth getting your hands on. The first (Travis Wammack on Fame 1972) is the most rare. It's a very fine record. But the second album (Not For Sale on Capricorn 1975), though still fairly easy to find as a used album, is the better of the two. Easily one of my all time favorite southern rock albums of the 70's. -Skydog
