Another big Ronnie Earl fan. No pedals, Dumbles, or BS. Just a strat, a Super Reverb and great playing.

Love Ronnie's playing. :bow He has a style all his own.
Not many modern blues guitar players are as instantly recognizable.
Definitely in my top 10.
I wish he still toured.

Oh yes! Ronnie is fantastic! My favorite player, bar none, and a real gentleman as well. He doesn't tour, and only plays in New England these days, but he can still play as well as ever. I am fortunate to live about ten miles down the road from Ronnie, so I get to see him several times a year. If you get a chance, jump on it. He's a force of nature, and pours everything in his soul into his playing. To me, he really epitomizes what music is all about: soul.

I had a chance to catch him live at a festival close to 20 years ago. His is the only performance I even remember from that year. It really had an impact on me.

Sure do.I just burned the 3hr 2008 show this morning.Right click the "download" option.Hit "save target as" it will than download it onto a file i put it in "music".
I then use itunes to convert(WWA-APP) it into a file that can be burned.The shows are streamed and i haven't figured a way to divide them with gaps btwn songs.I'm not complaining i just got 5 cd's worth of my favourite player FREE!
The 1987 Roomfull of Blues show with Ronnie is Killer also! three hours past midnight is stellar Ronnie.
Search "fabulous thunderbirds" for some great circa 1979 Jimmy Vaughan.
PM me if you need help

Be sure to run your spyware after sugermegs, my spybot immunizer found 40 things to block.
