Kind of a different type of song for him, but I like his guitar tone on his solo....
Big fan of any artist that has something to say and says it. Wouldn't be much of a fan of him chasing tired worn out blues licks.
Oh, thanks for the video. I nodded off just when it started, and woke up right at the last chord. Perfectly timed!
Past, present, future... doesn't matter. It's all in there.
His songs have always run the gamut between heavy blues, hip hop and even doo wop kinda stuff. He's not just a "blues artist". Can't wait for the new album, personally.
The actual video is even better. It's a lot more poignant without the restrictions of network TV. Made me want one of those SGs too. I think this is great though. And to address the OP's question, absolutely, this has made me think "future of blues" more than anything else I've heard from him.
I LOVE this new song. So raw.
I am definitely into it when an artist has something to say, something from their experience they want to share. Good on him.
Good stuff. That gave me cold chills.
He's the future of good music, regardless of genre I think.
Yeah, he's not even really a blues player at all, is he, at least not in the traditional sense....
Powerful song, powerful video. Much respect to Gary for keeping it real.
Maybe he has something to say. Have yet to understand him if he does.
It might not be the kind of blues you expect at a Joe B concert, but one could argue that this is the new blues. After all, it's a simple melody with heartfelt lyrics about struggle.
He's a musician singing from the same place that the original blues musicians were. He's creating not recreating. Joe B and the like with the suits and sunglasses are the musical equivalent to civil war reenactments.
I watched it last night on Colbert. I was glad I stayed up.
Yup, well put.
*******, this is so f'ing good.
Joe B is a carpetbagger?
