Just awesome music
He has talent. I dig many of his songs. But I think he’s gotten away from his more songwriting persona and morphed into more of a jam-band guy, like TTB, Phish or whatever. Saw him live about two months ago and it was mostly a jam fest. He played maybe one or two of the more ‘songwriter’ cuts. The rest was 10-minute jazz odyssey kinda tracks. It was ok but got one-dimensional and boring after about 30 mins. Still like him overall though.
I had never heard of him until I got the Crossroads 2019 movie. I was impressed!I saw him at Crossroads right before Covid. Big venue. Saw him this past February in a 600 person joint in Fayetteville. Great show and he had an impressive collection of guitars including his grandfather’s ‘62 345. Dude can play. Reminds me a lot of Warren Haynes.
He's always been like that. He opened for a band I was touring with several years ago. I remember hearing the tail end of his sound check and being absolutely blown away. He was playing an SG thru a Tube screamer into an old blackface super reverb. The guy is from another planet.How did he get so good?
