I like tab a lot! I haven’t listened to him in awhile. He looks different , haven’t seen the longhair look - it’s good .
I got away from blues a bit . Might have to start digging back in

I wish I had a video of him in the early 90s with his first release. I saw him in Beaumont, Tx around 93 or 94. I like his earlier stuff best.
I'd bet that something from that era by Tab is on YouTube. Here is a live performance of Tab with Jimmy Thackery. Unusual to see Jimmy playing a Tele...

Tab is great. Saw him for the first time a couple months ago (1st show I’ve attended in a long time).
Love his style & I think his voice is seriously underrated.

I hear a lot of John Lee Hooker in his playing.

He is a force. I've seen him live a couple of times and he and his band put on a great show.

The long hair is new and he wears it well. :cool:

It looks like he let his hair grow over COVID.

Saw him before covid with Samantha Fish. His hair was short then. He plays LOUD!

I saw that tour too, in Colorado. Looks like they're still at it. I got to see Samantha up close and personal at Guitar Town in Copper Mountain a few years ago. Another powerful performer.

The Tele is unusual for Jimmy. Tab and Jimmy had a short term band called Whiskey Store that did gigs and a couple of albums.
