    Aside from the first two posts, what does this thread have to do with amps?

    first time I saw KWS on stage he was 7 years old; he wasn't playing guitar then but he had the best seat at the venue, as he was sitting at the front of the stage :cool:

    Yes they're good. I saw them play live in Eugene over 15 years ago.

    Remember Kenny Wayne use to rip out his speakers and
    put in old Pyles. I think they were Utah. But that was
    when he was a kid.

    I saw him open for Jethro Tull in Virginia, probably 1999 or 2000. All I remember were seemingly endless guitar solos, with the first two or three rows of people jamming to it, but everyone further back kind of standing there, and some yawning... He was obviously great at what he did (does?), but it seemed lost on anyone further than a few rows back.

    Super cool if his amps are secret Dumbles. I got to see Kenny once about 7 or 8 years ago, with Chris Layton on the drums. Also super cool. I wouldn't call him a Stevie clone, even though SRV's influence is more than apparent. He was definitely his own guy till he closed the show with "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)". At that point, I figured it was the closest I will ever get to seeing Stevie live, in this life. And I was more than okay with that. :)

    I saw KWS open for someone(Buddy Guy maybe???) in the late 1990s and thought he was good. Saw him headline his own show(early-mid 2000s) and thought he was better. And then I saw him last year and WOW! Was WAY better than I remember him being. Great tone, great phrasing, not straight SRV/Jimi clone ery. He's matured well.

    I saw him with Jonny Lang on one of the Experience Hendrix tours. Those two guys together, with Jonny’s voice and Kenny’s chops, would make for a powerhouse band. Separately, neither one seems to be able to break into the Big Leagues.

    For the price, nothing beats KWS front row seats. So for purely selfish reasons, no Big Leagues!

    I think he sings as well as Noah plays guitar. So yeah, Kenny should stick to the chorus. Although Noah's vocal range was stretched to it's limit on the last album
