    The Dutch variety of n00b is easily confused with the other nationalities, especially English speaking nations. This is because they tend to communicate in nearly comprehensive ways. You can however spot a Dutch n00b by his very large ego, his absurdly high self-esteem and general bastardlyness. Also, Dutch n00bs (like any other Dutch) are drunk most of the time, or high on pot, or both. This makes the Dutch n00b rather harmless and easy to deal with. Also, they react overly sensitive whenever hearing the word dyke.

    Great player - great thread. Hat tipped, respect given. Play on.
    Oh - and come to the UK sometime soon, please, please, please.....

    heh heh heh - just noticed - Alligator Records - formerly home of Hound Dog Taylor.
    "When I die," Taylor once said, "they'll say, he couldn't play shit but he sure made it sound good."
    That'll do me just fine.....

    Thanks b-squared. I've met Michael as well, and had a long conversation with him. Great guy.

    He's more into Freddie than the others actually.

    Just stumbled onto this thread. Wow.....holy smokin geeezzzus the man can play and play his azzz off. Just watched a vid of his. I think he was playin on a blues cruise maybe. He could show a few better known blues players a thang or two. It's players like him that give me inspiration to keep pushin on. The guy is the real deal.

    Thanks for posting this and makin it a sticky...and thanks for turning me on to someone I didn't know about.:thumb:

    Alcohol may have been a factor.

    That was it LOL... so maybe 30 seconds in. Either way it had me rolling! I talked to Mike a couple days ago, I guess she fell over one of the cabs or road cases or something at some point :laugh2::laugh2:
