    I'm guessing (?) he keeps a hat on.

    Saw him in a Jody Foster flik ... about a "safe room". DY played a real creep-character ... and, without his ubiquitous hat, he looked the part.

    I do enjoy his music.

    Keep the hat on !!!

    Never got to see Pete with Dwight, but saw Pete doing his own thing a few years back and he is an amazing player. Saw Eddie Perez twice with Dwight, the first time with two A/C 30s and it was the best guitar tone to my ears I've ever heard (and I've heard a bunch). Had my first Tele immediately after. [Perez is strongly underutilized with the Mavericks, IMO].

    I really like the sound on this new album. If it's Eugene Edwards as mentioned above, I won't be missing anybody when I see Dwight again, no disrespect to the two great players above.

    I've only seen him once but he was really good. Have fun!

    Dwight is something else. Been a while since I listened to him. Just did a quick youtube search. Came up with this:

    Some weird Bavarian Lederhosen **** going on. I like it!

    Dwight rules.

    Just an update: Fabulous! Really had a great time, he was great and the band was hitting all cylinders. Eugene Edwards was fun to watch and sure can bang out a song, not sure who the rest of the band was but the bass player seemed to be having a good time. The keyboard/violin/accordion/pedal steel player was busy all night long and was great. Dwight was everything I hoped for, still sounds good to me!
    If he's coming near you I whole-heartily advise you to go.

    Looks like he’ll be in Warren OH at the Packard on Oct 25th. I might do that show. It’s a Thursday so I can go.

    Thanks for the heads up. I definitely would have missed it.

    Cool. I got my tickles!
