    I saw him in London last week with Scott Amendola on drums. It was incredible. When they got going it was difficult to believe that only 2 guys were making all that music. Charlie's guitar work makes most guitarists look like amateurs. You have to see him live but you can also find some great live recordings on archive.org because he allows taping of his shows.
