    I want your opinion on this. I thought the song was pretty good till the solos happen. Both have skills, but I was left just....eh. Wank'n. In addition I am not one of the Joe haters, but he should not become an actor imo.

    I really like Eric Gales. I have listened to his life story in an interwiew at Andertons Youtube channel. Man, he didnt have an easy life, but what an awsome guitar player he became.
    I am also blown away by the fact that his strings are turned upside down on his guitar (so the thinest string is up and thickest down) :)

    Both Eric and Joe are great players. I might be able to play rhythm guitar with them. Or maybe not :lol:

    Both wank too much, but Gales doesn’t lose my interest as quickly as Bonnamassa does…considering everything, I’d go see Gales in concert…Joe? Probably not.

    Both have more talent in their little toenail than I gave in my whole body.

    Eric Gales is very unique, I think. He sounds like him, not like anyone else. Whereas JB sounds like EVERYBODY else, if that makes any sense.

    JB and Greg Koch have both said Gales may be the best (blues?) guitarist on the planet today. I'm not even sure they said "blues". Gales is unique.
