Glad to read so many on-point comments about Mr. B. I watched this video twice this past weekend just to listen in on his guitar mindset and philosophy of playing. Not saying that I'm a fan of his tone in this video, but that Les Paul seems particularly toneful, even when turned down. His explanations of the Clapton, Beck, Page, and Kossoff impressed upon me how good Joe's ear is when tuned in to other players. He knows that he's sort of a “polarizing” figure in the guitar world, but I think (aside from his toneful playing), it is sort of welcoming that he imparts his guitar knowledge and history to listeners in an entertaining and “matter of fact” manner.
Not familiar enough with his works to be a huge fan but there's no question he knows gear and how to play it.
Refreshing to see a person that can do much with so little.
