    lol, let's get @Joeydego's expert opinion ... no doubt he's got a receipt or eight laying around.

    Basically, he said a journalist pieced together a few lines out of a 3000 word interview to fit the agenda. The guy uses pedals, and is not dumb enough to think anyone doesn’t know that. I have had enough conversations with Joe....he is an intelligent guy, appreciates his fans, and would not say those things in the context that it looked like. Haters gonna hate though.

    Joe is really just a guitar nerd who--unlike the rest of us--has been successful. If you have ever been interviewed you know that you hardly ever have quotations properly put in context.

    Agreed. I'm kind of surprised that Guitar Player would do that to him seeing as he's carrying the guitar torch with a few others like Slash, but I guess they have to sell magazines. If I were Joe I'd not chat with them again!

    Controversy sells, Lefty. Just look at CBSSportsline.com. Less than half of the stories are about games. It's all about who mean mugged who on the court or why the Texans didn't sign Kapernick...let alone MSM pol stuff.

    As to guitar mags, I remember a time when there were huge sections of any store that would have a slew of dif pubs. They have seemingly been replaced by gun mags and, of course, celeb worshipping and paparazzi enabling has drifted from right by the cash register to the actual magazine rack. We're basically contemptible.:laugh2:

    I saw Joe's show last night in Cleveland. As usual, it was a great show. He played quite a different set list than normal, so it was nice to hear something new.

    From my front row balcony seat, it appeared Joe had just two pedals in front of him. One was his wah and the other I'm not sure of. Of course, he could have someone operating more pedals backstage or maybe he really has simplified his setup.

    Although he played three different Les Pauls, he heavily favored Flying Vs and Firebirds. No SGs or 335s were played. He played a Strat for one song and a "Keith Richards" Tele on a couple of occasions.

    I was born and raised in Motown, went to the old Cass Tech, and WSU. I saw the premiere for 2001 Space Odyssey there in 11th grade, then the place fell into total disrepair. I guess they renovated it, and I am sure it was a fabulous concert JB is a phenomenal player, and keeper of the Blues tradition. I actually lived in Utica NY area for 4 years, and bought one of my Fender amps at his folk's store.

    Fantastic as always. Jeanette liked it too. I saw him in the spring in Chicago, and it was a similar show, but I knew that going in. He was very, very ill at that show in Chi town. Had the breathe right strip and all, but still gave it his all. That whole band is just incredible. LOVE the back up singers, and of course Reese and the boys knocked it out of the park as always.

    I seriously hope he does a "greatest hits" show. I'd form a set list real quick. LOL. Sloe Gin, Dust Bowl, Slow Train, Mountain Time, John Henry, Humming Bird.....

    Up until a year or so ago, that was his normal set list. I suppose if you've never seen him before those are the songs you'd want to hear. Having seen him 9 or so times (I've lost count) it's nice to see him do something different. Really, it doesn't matter what songs he plays, his guitar playing is absolutely phenomenal!

    I’ve lost count on how many times I’ve seen him. I agree, different isn’t bad. I would pick the top 3 or 4 songs from each tour, including an acoustic or two!

    I am not a JB fan but I appreciate what is being said about him that he is one of those keeping blues alive.

    Nice pic Jon...

    I believe the other pedal is the Way Huge Doubleland Special. No other pedals backstage from what I believe. Just straight into those old Fender Tweeds, cranked to the max! Sounds amazing. Saw him myself last month.

    There are plenty of videos online of his old rig with Silver Jub's, etc and quite an extensive board, he just changed his rig up around the Muddy / Wolf Red rocks show I think.

    Fender have a signature amp due out next year too.

    I doubt he will cozy up with Premier Guitar again either after Shawn Hammond's hurt feelings/whiny little b!tch column about the whole thing.
