    The best concert i had seen in years when he toured with willie nelson and a 3 piece country band i don't remember (big town?).
    Spent his playing time on keyboards and rocked the joint...and was in a very good mood.

    Didn’t know that. Looking forward to it, but hope it’s original material. Wasn’t too thrilled with his Sinatra “period”.

    Wishbone Ash had what many consider to be their best period in 1972 with their third album Argus and won all sorts of awards including "best new hope". They followed that up with a less popular album and then their live album, Live Dates, has been rated among the top ten live albums of all time. Right after that they began a rotating door of personnel that has continued throughout their life. However, their last three albums have been fantastic, with the latest, Coat of Arms, dropping in January. Many consider them to possess the blueprint to staying relevant - developing a strong communication with their fan base and continuing to release new, good material. They come out and mingle with the fans after EVERY concert.

    The Tubes. I rate 'Love Bomb' - the last 'proper' Tubes album (original line-up with Bill Spooner) as highly as the early ones.

    Me neither. This next one has no covers on it, as far as I’m aware.

    Not a lot to add, really, mostly nodding in agreement:
    Z Z Top. Rev. BFG in particular. After they started jamming around with other people an entirely different direction developed.
    Jeff Beck has always been golden; it just gets deeper.
    The Allman Brothers Band was always a roller coaster ride, but mostly an exciting one, and we still have Warren Haynes high stepping.
    Eric Johnson, of course.
    And Eric Clapton has been consistent, at least.
    Just my guitar-centric opinion.

    I kinda lost track of them in the late 70s: they didn't seem to be the same band that put out the first couple albums. Did they go thru any personel changes after their initial success?

    Check out the home videos Elston Gunn is putting out, gotta be close to 60 years worth.

    Picture quality is poor but the audio ain't bad.

    I'm sure someone on here will recognise him ;)

    Van the Man, Black Crowes, Dilbert McClinton. Lots of bands but so many great players and writers lost out to the MTV generation and it was all down hill after that. You have to search to find what should be playing on the radio vs what is.
    Marty still putting out great music and guitar playing.
