    This guy was on JRE and seemed an interesting guy, so I YTed him. I really liked what I heard, so now I've acquired more of his music and I really dig it. Anybody else a fan?







    The JRE episode. Not the best one, because Joe is a little bit too present again, at times. Still enjoyed it though.

    Saw him at Clapton's Crossroads festival in 2010 and he was fantastic.

    First time hearing him ITT
    after being recommended him by a few
    friends. Quite honestly, I find him a bit
    boring. Which is surprising, cause that
    was my impression of him after the first
    ten minutes of that podcast episode...
    I thought, "he must be better at expressing
    himself musically..." which is true, but
    nevertheless, I'd rather listen to Zappa,
    Stooges or even the Black Keys...

    I can see the allure, though.
    Lots of bands, especially after the turn
    of the millennium found critical success
    with this type of dirty blues/garage rock sound...

    Kid's a genius. Usually steals the show during R&R HoF induction jams.

    He's a good player, but I've never been that into his music. I feel like he could be an asset to band with better sense composition.

    Always thought he looked like Krazy Horse.

    I enjoy this kind of music.

    The Healing by him is probably one of my favorite songs. I know its cliche to say this, but he really is the modern day Hendrix.

    I agree with his. His music is missing something for me. I like his playing a lot, but as a singer/songwriter he does feel very generic. No spark, no spice.

    There is no modern day Hendrix. There probably won't ever be a modern day Hendrix. I can watch him playing all day and it still won't make any sense to me how he was that good.

    I have been following this cat since I first heard his music in 2012. I got to see him play live at Red Rocks in Denver in 2013. He sounds waaayyyy better live and he is an amazing guitarist.

    That first video TS posted is one of my favorite tracks.

    Fair enough, everyone's entitled to their own opinion.

    He's alright, but nothing about him screams "LISTEN TO ME INSTEAD OF BLACK KEYS OR THE OTHER BANDS IN THIS GENRE"

    big fan.

    saw him a few months ago and hes phenomenal live.

    although for the first 4 songs he played backup / rhythm guitar and thought that was odd.
