In a period of my life that was very difficult, I was in a very sad, emotional place. Late one night I could not sleep and I switched on the TV and happened upon Austin City Limits and there was Eric and his band. His playing, his sound, his songs, his energy and sincerity struck very deeply. I was just pulled into it completely. It had such effect on me .
In the decades since then his music has been, for lack of a better way of saying it, some kind of a comforting reminder of a part of myself that I love feeling, remembering is there. I have seen him live a number of times and his concerts are some of my favorites.
Chris Marsh is perfect paired with Eric. And Bill Maddox... a great drummer. Such a very sad and totally senseless loss.
This is such a good performance... loved listening to it. Thanks much for posting !
