    Saw Chuck Prophet last night in Winchester. He and the band were in good form. When he steps on a Blues Driver and lets rip a solo, it's something to hear. He's a great entertainer and showman and gets support from a really fine band. Stephanie stepped up to give a beautiful interpretation of Different Drum. Great night. Forgive the photo, let's pretend it's art.

    Saw them in Oxford last Friday. Fabulous gig. Storming rhythm section.

    Sorry, late to this thread! I've seen Chuck most times he's visited the UK since 'Soap and Water' and even by his own high standards, I'd say this latest time is the best I've ever seen him and the band and easily the best live show I've seen full stop!! :!:

    At the risk of sounding like a complete geek...do you know for certain whether Chuck steps on the blues driver for solos? Stacked with the Rat? I have most of the pedals he uses in my collection and have often thought about putting together a Chuck board...just not sure how he stacks his drives!

    No, it was a best guess based on what I heard.

    Fair enough...I'm guessing the reason I don't sound as good as Chuck has little to do with the order I put the pedals anyway!! ;):lol:

    I think Chuck is 40% attitude, 60% fingers. It's working for him.



    ... all those memories, like dirty plates, stacked up in the sink of time...

    Big fan of Chuck Prophet. For great Tele tones check out the album Balinese Dancer. Mucho twang and some great songs.

    Hmm......gotta get myself a clock.

    Chuck was a great guest on Live At Daryl's House where he does a terrific version of You Did with Daryl Hall. Easy to find on YouTube.

    Those behind the nut bends at 2:20 are pretty slick.

    Most touring players use stuff you can easily buy at GC or L&McQ. Nothing worse than having boutique gear crap out in Nowheresville, Iowa.

    I'll definitely check him out when I get the chance.

    I've been a huge GOR fan since the 80s. Next to GOR albums like The Killer Inside Me and Here Come the Snakes, his solo stuff just pales for me.

    Never heard of Chuck before, but now I have, and I'm getting ready to save all his catalog on my Spotify. What a great musician he is.

    Also, nice board he has, look at all those boss pedals, love it. BUT... The OCD in me is going nuts with the cabling, what a royal mess. But I think that if you're on the road all the time and something goes wrong, it's a lot easier to remove or replace a cable or pedal when it's set up this way rather than the neatly anchored away that most YouTube pedal boards are set up, including mine, LOL

    Obviouslyly I don't gig year-round, only a couple times a year some big festivals around here so I hope my pedal board stands a test of time the way it's wired.
