    I've been following Jonny Lang since he first came on the scene. He's really matured as a performer, even beyond the clip below. Still, this cut with Buddy Guy just kills.

    I loved those 2 together (plus Ron Wood) at Crossroads. Like pb&j, somethings just work together.

    This is my favorite thing Jonny Lang has done so far. The guy is criminally under rated as a player and as a singer.

    He was a 14 yr. old phenom, and then he seemed to vanish.
    What's he been doing?

    Agreed John.

    Johnny originally came out like Bonamassa as a child prodigy, but both emerged as accomplished musicians.

    Lang could have fallen into pop stardom and cashed in but instead he remained faithful to the genre.

    I recently saw him in a small venue in Philly and to say that they killed doesn't do them justice. Major props.

    He's made several albums and tours constantly, got married and had kids, very hard working guy....and his voice and playing constantly improve.

    Ive seen him twice, and each time it has been awe inspiring. Such a soulful singer and guitarist.

    Saw him open for BG a couple years ago. Really dig his tunes although he rivals John Mayer for funny faces while he's playing.

    And the title track from his most recent record "Fight For My Soul." This stuff is just too cool.

    It's cold outside.
    His song " Red Light" knocks me out every times I hear it. I saw him live at the Mont Tremblant Blues Festival by chance, a free show....totally blown away.
