I think we better start.
The dude is a beast of a player. His sound leaves a lot to be desired IMO.
It doesn't stop me from enjoying the tunes tho.
I’ve been listening to him. He’s on my Spotify play list. Not enough of a fan to buy his tunes though.
He is an awesome player. I just hope that he drops some weight so he can be with us for years to come.
Hes 19. He better lose some serious weight if he wants to see 30
I agree - a great talent.
I was pretty impressed with Kingfish's tone on The Thrill Is Gone video. It sounded like he had listened to Gary Moore - so this interview quote was interesting:
"The guitar I’m playing at the moment is an LP-style guitar made by Mike Chertoff [of Chertoff Custom Guitars] in New York. It’s a really powerful guitar. I can plug that straight into an amp and it just sounds massive. I got interested in LPs and humbuckers when I was into Gary Moore for a spell. I always loved that fat, distorted tone, and I felt the LP was right up my alley. For the few songs that need a trebly tone, I break out the Strat. Some nights I’ll stick with the LP, and some nights I may not play it at all and use the Strat instead."
I just got hip to him, thanks to this video:
Yeah- that kid can play.
Great player and showman. I saw him last year at the Mont Tremblant International Blues Festival and he was fantastic. For one song he left the stage and solo’d for about 20 minutes while walking through the audience.
This said, I agree that he could have a better tone, but I’m sure he’s attracting a lot of endorsements so he’ll get there.
Excellent player although I do find the music somewhat derivative.
Thought this thread would be about Weir / Hoddinott / Torbert / Kelly
He can def play.
All I can think of is “He talks like the Kingfish from Amos and Andy, he thinks that chitlin taste just like candy” from “You Are What You Is” by Frank Zappa
