    It seems almost non sequitur to compare Joe B and Dave D, but that sure is a killer Lester/Rock and Roll tone!

    i'd hang with joe but, as some have said,too many notes.bet he mellows out one these days.i think maybe for those of us in the too many notes camp he compares to gary moore or walter trout.

    I take your point, but a lot of great music has been and will be made playing cowboy chords on a Tele with a tube amp.

    I’m not a fan, but I like the guy. Again, I really don’t understand the word hate being used. I think sometimes certain people infer that someone is hated when all that is said is I’m not fond of his music. So we agree on that.

    The vocalist is Jimmy Barnes (from the band Cold Chisel) not Ian Gillan.

    You’re an Aussie so you knew. Anton Fig on drums, Michael Rhodes on bass and Derek Sherinian on keys. And Brad Whitford. Producer is Kevin Shirley.

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    I have the utmost respect for Joe B. Guy works his butt off, definitely can play the guitar, great technique, doesn't blow his money on drugs n' booze, etc.

    His music doesn't really move me, but YMMV. That doesn't mean I hate him; I'd just rather listen to Rory Gallagher for this type of stuff.

    I will say that I much prefer his work with Black Country Communion to his solo stuff...maybe because he isn't the main focus he reins it in a bit?

    Nice to see all the vintage gear being played too...

    If you're such a fan of Roy Buchanan and Jimi Hendrix, how is it that you don't even know their names?

    I didn't know who he was until a couple of years ago when he started saying that stuff about pedal users being lazy or whatever it was and loads of people were getting upset online.

    He seems like an alright bloke, clearly passionate about the guitar and vintage amps and whatnot which is fine by me.

    Not really my thing at all though, I prefer to listen to sloppy guitar players. He could be (and probably is) an amazing guitar player but it's doing nothing for me.

    Riding back in on your Big Wheel wearing your Spelling Police hat just made a stupid thread even worse.

    Well I don't know too much about Joe B - I just recently got into him. And while I do find some of his stuff a little pretentious, ya gotta admit that this is some mighty fine playing!

    Just my opinion.
