    Well he certainly thinks he's good—that's what the goofy faces say to me in this case. I know I'm being mean, but he's a scene-stealer too, prowling around the stage. He finally took a spot behind the singer, literally out of the spotlight, but inevitably sidles back to the forefront.

    And while I'm at it, I really dislike those hats to boot. My porkpie hat prejudice started when I noticed poser kids wearing them around town. I fairly worship the master luthier down the street, he's not a kid but one day I ran into him at the grocery store and he was wearing one. That really threw me, a weird feeling of disappointment and disillusionment. o_O :lol:

    In the end, though, besides having a perfect tone, the guy in the video is a skilled, nuanced player crafting tasty, soulful phrases beyond my talents. Just another reason to hate him!! :p:(:oops:

    Yes, but Joe Walsh really doesn't take himself too seriously. Gotta love the guy and he's a great guitar player.

    I lasted 28 seconds.

    Paul Kossoff always bothers me, for what it’s worth.

    We are visual creatures, no escaping it. We might listen with our ears, but man, do we think with our eyes or what!

    Tangentially, the hat thing is, for me, really interesting.

    Personally, pork pies and fedoras say not the blues, but rather speak of rude boys, ska, and everything that followed. I dig them.

    Who cares about his face ? That guitarist is hitting it right in the pocket and i am not a great blues lover, i can only take so much. He makes that Strat, I bet it's an early 60's L-series, sing.

    I agree with the "faces are ok, but the hat is stupid and looks dorky" crowd.

    I find her alluring in a David Lynch neo-noir sort of way.
