If you have the chance, go see him. Seriously, buy the ticket right now. That was definitely in the top 3 shows I have ever seen, and believe me there's been lots of them. I was expecting a relaxed show, some acoustic guitars, and some classic tunes. What I got was a face full of electric guitar jams that nearly brought the house down. I saw a 70 year old man dominate a strat, organ and harmonica and make them all his bitch. He was even dancing around the stage like the six flags guy. Sure his voice sounded like a chain smoker that has been gargling hot asphalt, but he changed the song structures around and made it work, in some cases it was better than the original. His two guitar players were even doing improvised simultaneous leads, but due to the contrast in their playing styles they didn't step on each others toes at all, it all just worked and flowed effortlessly. Needless to say I had an awesome time and put a big ass check mark on my list of acts to see. Thank you Bob you just completely made my summer and probably my year :applause:


I also saw my new favorite t-shirt ever.front: "Buy vinyl..."
back: "...because you can't roll a joint on an mp3"
