  • awesome music
  • Seen him twice and hope to see him again.
  • To the sound of this player do not have to get used to. We are listening to such work since our youth.
  • simply brilliant
  • Was at a conference in Santa Fe for a few days around 2005 and saw that Shorty was playing a gig in some community center in a small town about 30-40 minutes drive from my hotel. I had several of his albums and dug his sound. I decided to go because I heard he was quite the live act too. It was an actual town community center...not that big. There were about 70 or so people there and some with kids in tow. Shorty had just been pretty sick and had just got out of the hospital. But he and his band played about two hours, then took a break, and then played for two hours more. Hands down the best blues guitarist I have ever seen (and I have seen quite a few stellar players including BB, Robert Cray, etc...). Damn that was a stellar show...
  • His sound even now amaze an incredible freedom.
  • Man, this guy was inspiration for Hendrix!
  • he's a real blues-rocker :)
  • Vote for a new pic...the current one sux. Thanks!
  • Duro e puro come un rocker!
