    Joe got where he is one fan at a time. Like him or not, he earned it. There is an interview where he is about 12 years old with Jane Pauley, and he said then he knew what he wanted to do.

    I imagine my knowledge of Joe's is like many others. I first saw him in.....2000 I think. My brother and I went to a Lynyrd Skynyrd show in Toledo OH. He was a 3 pc. band and traveled in a van. A lot of Skynyrd fans are douchey to the opening act. Not with him. He left to a standing O. My brother and I looked at each other and were like "who the F#ck was that!?". Immediately went and bought a CD and started paying attention to him.

    I find it fun to stumble on new acts, and have done so on several occasions like that. The Steepwater Band, Greta Van Fleet, Ruthie Foster, Government Mule. If you are looking for good music via the popular avenues now, you are doing it wrong, and it's quite possible to find a "niche" without going mainstream. In fact, many artists, including Joe, pride themselves on it. Giving the big F#CK YOU to the industry, while doing quite well for themselves in the mean time.

    I discovered Joe in 2003 on a demo CD that came with a Line 6 product.

    Greta van Fleet are my „new band of the month“, their Talk On The Street my favorite tune. Awesome!

    He and Beth Hart have collaborated on stuff I've come to enjoy a lot. She can belt it out while he wails. For me, her voice is best a few songs at a time, rather than by the album.. They are solid and engaging IMHO.

    According to a documentary I saw, Joe, his agent, and his producer (I think) set out on a strategy of building up from small venues on their own terms, and at their own pace. They made their way without big labels support.

    Got to hand it to him though, at the end of the day, he burns through learning a lot of songs, lyrics, his guitar parts and arrangements. He's out there letting people hear his collection of mighty fine instruments, and other legendary guitars. Among them Rory Gallagher's strat and Greenie. I'd like to see and hear what he could do with Roy Buchanan's Tele, Nancy..

    ETA: sry to go off topic, I thought I was in Joe's farewell thread.. they seen to overlap a bit.

    I’ll never understand the “...this is a private situation between Buyer X and Seller Y, and shouldn’t be aired in public like this...” camp.

    This is exactly where things should be discussed.

    Maybe I’m just a simplistic guitar guy, but I see it as one of two ways:

    A) The seller cant distinguish real vs fraud, which is bad.

    B) The seller doesn’t care, which is worse.

    Either way Buyer X should be made whole.

    If it were I, I’d only ask for my money once.......

    I've stayed up way past my bedtime reading this fascinating thread. I had planned on seeing JB in concert, but his crazy meltdown has changed my mind. I'm sure he'll stay up late and worry over the loss of two tickets sales. :laugh2::laugh2:

    I'm no real JB music fan, although I do really admire his skill. I was mainly interested in going to see if he would grow on me. I think I'll stick with the occasional youtube video.

    Cool. I wasn't a big Robert Cray fan, but seeing him live was great, even if he did shoot his girl for cheating.

    The figures being discussed here are staggering but RD has the right, in my book, to make this call.

    Joe B: I'd love to have seen your pagger with one of the All Blacks. I would wager that did not end well for you. If it ever truly transpired.

    You went down in my estimation in this thread but, hey, it showed you're human, just like the rest of us.

    And I once worried about no primer on a Fender Jazz...

    Don't worry about the primer. Sometimes they forgot. Or ran out. Or did't bother.

    Good thing you can easily get good primer at the DIY store... For replacing plastics it's a lot more difficult.

    Same with me. His reaction to all of this was ridiculous. Don’t understand why he went so deep into this.

    Look at the timestamps of the posts, early morning hours. Probably after loads of booze.
