    I seen both and I am a fan of both. Just two different styles, that's part of the beauty of the blues. I seen Jimmies son Tyrone, another good guitarist, in The Royal Southern Brotherhood at a small venue outside Philly. He shares duties with another really good player I knew of from his solo work, Bart Walker. I passed some words with him after the show. With that linage he has to feel some weight. I showed up with some expectations and I wasn't disappointed. I plan to make a point of keeping an eye out for him.

    Of the little I've heard of Jimmie, he strikes me as having a much more distinctive style because he seems to play a little behind the beat alot. It's like he's always a nano second off/slow. When he's doing it, it doesn't sound like anyone else. Here's a good example of what I'm talking about:

    This is the first time I've heard Jimmie in many years. it's not really my thing. Mind you I was just watching SRV at El Mocambo thinking about how much he was over playing.What I consider to be "just right" for me is somewhere between the two. When you drive you use the gas and the brake (and the clutch too if you got one). Jimmie sounds more like coasting along to me. Everybody likes what they like though.

    I think my favorite Stevie song is Tin Pan Alley.... My fav Jimmie song is probably Dengue Woman..... I like both, but as noted, way different styles.... I saw Stevie twice in the mid '80s in San Diego... wow! Great versions of Texas Flood ...thanks for posting! Great way to start the day!

    You have to understand the blues to get Jimmie...rock blues he is not...he is taking his style from my old band leader Mr. Ervin Charles....and he will tell you that.
