    I remember learning about this guitarist on this forum. I remember it being a heavy set white guy who wore overalls. I want to say he was from Texas. Any help?

    A fat guy in overalls in Texas ... yep, that narrows it down.

    The video was modern and I think he played with Redd Volkaert. Sorry, wish I could be more specific. I'd say he's currently middle aged.

    Redneck for sure. Not Redd, I know him. He's a lesser known name.

    My first thought was Lowell George - man I loved that slide tone, rhythm and voice. . .

    Great record. I'd never heard of him at the time but bought it just for the cover I knew it would be good.

    Redd used to play with a guy around Austin that matches that description. I think he went by Big ??. something. This a picture stolen from Redd's website. It was taken when he won Best Dressed at an Austin Chronicle (local news paper) award ceremony.

    Sounds like you are thinking of Dave Biller.
