    I recently re-bought a reissue. This time it ain't going anywhere... I've bought and sold several, but there's nothing quite like it - plus great for musical chorus sounds.

    Have you tried both the big AC and new small one? Wondering what's the difference. Always loved the sound of the live album. Always wondered what pedal that was. Thinking of getting the small one. Anyone know about noise or volume drop?

    Great stage presence. He controls the crowd large or small.

    This could be heresy for some but I really like his ass-kicking version of Statesboro Blues.

    Saw him (with Thrall, Cowling, and Aldridge) in 1979 opening for REO Speedwagon at the Miami Jai-Alai Fronton. Both bands were riding some hits at that time but Traver's band just destroyed...

    Working from home today, listening to a Pat Travers mix on you tube. Just a blazing rocking full package. I saw him several times in the 80's. I want to see him again if possible if he comes down to So. Cal again....

    never knew him to play non- 4/4. That is very cool 7/4.

    The owner of a local record store I go in told me that a year or two ago a guy came in and
    asked did they have any old Riggs records.

    They said they had a few miscellaneous bins and he was welcome to check, but why was he
    looking for Riggs records?

    "Because I am Riggs" was the answer they got. :D

    Lyrics can be changed to be either PC or more audience friendly. I had a friend who was Christian perform rock cover songs at church and changed the lyrics to be more acceptable in a praise/worship situation.

    I was pretty much done with Travers before the 70s ended. I still listen to the Putting it Straight LP these days.
