    That is too funny. It's definitely the same shirt. Same guitar as well. How old are the two videos?

    I think some hair coloring is the age difference... but the clips are within the same year... maybe within the same 3-4 months...

    he does not look like a city slicker at all! i think it´s pretty cool that he wears his shirt a long time. he spends his money on strings and things i guess.

    I've got a sweater I bought in 1981 - in fact I'm wearing it now. It's a bit ragged around the cuffs and I wouldn't wear it out, but hey.
    I've had to rescue it from the bin a few times when my ...err... partners at the time, attempted to throw it out. Yes, it's lasted longer than any relationship.
    We need another Blue Suede Shoes, but called Old Green Sweater. :p

    There is an album of his that also has Country Boy... that has him singing a slow song called "On a real good night" that is a really good example of how good his voice can be."

    Albert is just one of the good guys and a great great great player.

    Like the guy who catches alligators for Miami animal cops. Is that one shirt he wears, or does his closet look like the shipping room at the factory where they make that thing?

    When you're that good, I'm pretty sure you can wear anything you want to and get away with it.

    Yup, people also noticed (and made fun of the fact) that Garcia had worn the same Gingham shirt with snaps in two different album covers.

    SING??? Hey, English guys - wasn't he co-frontman in Head, Hands and Feet? Oh yeah, he was -



    Kudos to the TV producer who thought that "Country Boy" needed the groovy fizzedelic backdrop treatment. Oh yeah, and it was the bassplayer's turn to wear the ugly shirt....

    No, these clips are like 10 years apart.

    Don't forget you can buy more of one of the same shirt, especially if you are on tour with say, Eric Clapton.

    He is an Ernie Ball endorsee.
    I reckon the odds of him spending his own money on strings is roughly 1:1,000,000,000,000.
