Love them! I put them in the same category as Captain Beyond and Camel. Different types of music, but bands that flew under the radar in the US but are musically advanced and are still listened to today.

Love 'em. Great Band. I have seen them about a half dozen times. Once with the original lineup. A few times with Laurie Wisefield on 2nd guitar and a couple of times with the current lineup. They always sound great.

Andy Powell is a beautiful player. Very fond of the early years w/ Ted Turner, but Live Dates 2 w/ Laurie Wisefield was really nice. Certainly some subpar material since the 70s, but they're sounding fantastic these days w/ Andy's singing/playing front/center; some strong new material and solid musicians.

I took my 19 yr old son to see them last year, here in San Antonio. They played a nice, medium sized theater. The opening band had HUGE amplifiers, capable of playing a football stadium, and sounded terrible! A gigantic blare of sound. Wishbone came out, playing 59 Bassman reissues, and sounded incredible. Truly beautiful tone!

My boy was dazzled. The only other guitar player he'd seen with such mastery of the instrument was Buck Dharma. This was another example of how magical great live rock music can be.
