Don't know if you're serious, but I do agree. I see his name being thrown around a lot lately. I've been back on a blues kick, and this dude does nothing for me. I don't understand how people like him get popular. He's got that Vegas Blues thing going on. Now...I haven't explored his entire catalog, so perhaps I'm missing something, but I don't care for the Vegas Blues. Of course, I've been digging into Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf (Hubert Sumlin on guitar), and some other stuff. But I tried me some Stevie Ray and he's too Vegas Blues for me, too. Haven't found much contemporary blues that I like.
It's like Ryan Adams. WTF is so appealing about that guy? He's no Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives, which is by far the best country music out there.
