    Saw him a couple nights ago at Peter's Place in Gravenhurst in Ontario. Very small club. Only holds 80 people. I was maybe 10 feet from him. He was on oxygen the whole time and didn't sing much, but he sure played some nice guitar. His back-up band was killin' it all night. They did a half dozen songs to open the first set, then again for the second. Show ran maybe 2 or 2.5 hours. One of the best shows I've seen. Unfortunately, Hubert was pretty wiped out after the show so I didn't get a chance to talk to him, but I had a nice chat with the bass player, who told a few stories.

    Hubert played that sunburst strat through a red-knob The Twin. I got a few pix that I'll try to upload when I'm back in town next week.

    Is that Jorma with... a Les Paul? I've never seen him play one. The closest was an SG with a Bigsby that I think he borrowed.

    Huberts version of "Sittin on top of the world" is one of my favorite songs of all time!
