Sat five feet away at a Taylor Clinic here in Houston. The typical fanboy rant doesn't begin to do this guy justice. I've been playing almost 40 years and I've never seen anything like Doyle Dykes before. I've seen youtube clips of course but that just doesn't begin to prepare you for the level of virtuosity he brings. Everything from Chet to Brent Mason Country style shred to bebop jazz to you name it. Not only is he a jaw dropping guitar player but he seemed like a really nice guy as well. He and his daughter Haley had just driven from west Texas somewhere in a hail storm to get here and he was joking and laughing as was taking his gear out of the car, refusing any help all the while. He had great stories about people he had played with (by the way, Eric Johnson and Phil Keaggy are on Doyle's upcoming release) and he had Haley sing a couple and play mandolin as well. Not to bring up a sticky subject but he had a great testimony as well without beating people over the head. All in all one of the most impressive musical performances I've ever seen and you truly owe it to yourself to see Doyle if he comes to your town.
