  • lolwhat
  • This guy is awesome. First heard him at the Isle Of Wight festival when I was just a spotty teen. Blew me away then (although no charges were pressed) and I've been a fan ever since. I've been to all his live gigs in the UK I could over the years (although his cranberry sauce habit made the the 80's very sparse - but that's in the past now). He is a master of the 9 string guitar, second only to the late great Blind Bacon Grunberg, his skills with the C flat minor harp legendary and I need say nothing about his singing (in fact I'd rather not). I have all his vinyl releases (make great fruit bowls when softened with boiling water) and all his later CD releases (keeps the birds of the soft fruit). If you're a fan of the blues then do yourself a favour and listen to this guy. A legend in his own lunchtime.
  • lol this is funny :9
