    Who needs a band? Look at those people enjoying that twang!

    That's pretty neat. For the first minute or so he's not really cutting it, but after the band comes in in his imagination it totally rocks. I think it had something to do with his high E string breaking. Those things are overrated.

    That whole album is great. Some interesting covers and arrangements interspersed with originals.

    Not the best example of it, but he was a very capable guitarist. He had a few 'lead' players, one being Gary Lucas, but I think he was clearly always the more inspired and musical guitar player.

    I discovered Jeff in 97 with Grace, but as soon as I listened to the Siné EP I was hooked. Then I remember going to watch the Live in Chicago at a movie theater: with the big screen and the volume, it was the closest experience from actually seeing him in concert.

    Jeff was a massive source of inspiration for me: I was in my early twenties, sold my LP studio to buy a blonde telecaster (50´s MIM), my first proper tube amp (Blues jr) and I started composing songs and licks with a lot of open strings.
    I think it made me as a guitarist (for my first 7 teenage years of playing I was more into Slash).
    But at the same time I think he kind of discouraged me: while I was thinking about playing music for a living, I had the feeling I would never be as brilliant as he was and thought « What’s the point? » then.
    He had the voice, the chops and most of all, the soul.

    Imo the guy was a genius. He always sounded unique and musical no matter what. And that voice...

    I love the version on the Grace deluxe set. One of my favourite albums, totally timeless.
