    He's undeniably proficient / talented - but I don't enjoy his music much. Good to see young people carrying the flame, though.

    Fair enough, I haven’t got too deep into his own stuff yet. I get wrapped up in watching his festival stuff.

    He can certainly play though. . . how do people get that good by such a tender age? It's infuriating - haha!

    That was awesome! Best Kingfish solo I've seen so far. Really loved how the whole band dropped out and he just kept it going.. thanks for posting.

    When he stomps the pedal it’s about to get real!

    i really like Kingfish but everytime i see him, all i can think is he really needs to lose some weight. it's really going to be a problem for his health, as the years go by.

    Very talented. I hope he doesn’t become too Rick oriented in his style. That Les Paul looks like a toy.
