    Jeff Beck gets great growl from tube amps....

    Anyone that liked the performance by the guy named Gary, black dude playing what looked like a red ES330 or something similar, if you like that guys guitar style you would probably like Ten Years After Recorded Live.
    The guy must be an Alvin Lee fan, his guitar style is VERY similar to Alvin Lee.

    OK... guys, guys,... help me out here. I just watched the show. All in all, I loved it. Tedeschi/Trucks and Haynes... Keb Mo, Gary F'n Clarke Jr (Been talking that dude up since last spring... he's great!) Booker T, BB King... great line up. But, Jeff Beck? Really? Playing 5 Long Years, no less. Didn't Clapton win awards for his version of that tune on From The Cradle. Explain how Jeff Beck is the representation of British blues guitarists... and a "Blues Master" and Eric Clapton isn't on the bill? Maybe I don't know enough Jeff Beck, but I just don't get it.

    Gary Clark Jr. was quite impressive. Sweet Home Chicago...not so much.

    That's the guy, he plays rhythm and fill licks just like Alvin Lee did in the early 70s.

    Clapton was probably invited but they got Beck instead, who did his thing. Glad I caught the show and really enjoyed it. Buddy Guy is one of my favorites. Mick brought a lot of energy but was a little painful to watch.

    Love Jeff Beck, but his playing on this show tonight just seemed weird with his "warbled/vibrato" phrasing...out of step, IMO for this show- Jimmie Vaughan's or a similar-style player's understated grooves, fills, would have been better. Just someone that really plays this stuff for a living, or if we gotta go with star power, EC !

    Still, its great to showcase some good blues at the White House.

    Jeff Beck cut his teeth in the same circles as the other British blues guys. He just never seemed to have gotten the same notoriety until sometime in the 80s.

    Saw it loved it. The Pres delivered a solid vocal under pressure. I like the complete unreasonableness that Jeff Beck presented. I have not really been digging Beck over the last few years, but I really loved his performance on this program.

    I'm not a Beck guru, but I do know he was playing blues back in the 60s, along with a slew of other 'blue eyed blues' guitarists. Why Beck was there and not another British bluesman? Dunno, but I think he did quite well.

    Hope these links help:

    GREAT show. Some fine performances . . . Buddy Guy, damn glad to be there . . . Keb Mo on the meaning of . . . Gary Clark & Shemekia Copeland!

    (Plus, us bottom-fishers dig the way there's dozens of custom-shop guitars and Gary Clark rocks the White House with a $400 Chinese Epi Casino.)

    Ms. C, Susan Tedeschi and an entire band of seasoned pro's TOTALLY STOKED to be playing a Rolling Stones tune in back of Mick Folkin' Jagger! Did you catch how much fun that drummer was having playing Charlie Watts for a few minutes?

    And yeah, see BB King while you can.
