    Love this. If I could sing like anybody it would be him, not a bad guitar player either :)

    Thanks love him. I am the other way. He is a good vocalist but it's his guitar playing that blows me away. He and JLV.

    Should be illegal to be able to do both as good as him.

    You don't have to be a strong persuader to get me to watch this one.

    Love him. I'm not sure if he's ever really been a blues player per se, but he's definitely leaned more toward soul music for the last fifteen years or so. Lots of a great records.

    He's great.

    I posted a nice video of Robert Cray over on the Seymour Duncan Forum a couple of days ago and got slammed for it. So I deleted it.

    Probably won't post there again for a long while.

    "He's not as good as Eric Johnson."

    "I know any number of local guitar players who are better."

    "Thin, plinky Strat tone."

    "I don't get it."

    Weird. Guess they wanted to hear more two handed tapping or something.
