Good stuff. Based on that style - interested if you guys caught JD McPherson's set last year - sun night after the rain. One of the highlights for me.

Bluesfest has featured all of the world's top living rockabilly guitarists,[apart from Scotty Moore & James Burton] over the years.

Paul Pigat...such a fast player like Roy Rogers
Jim Heath...unfortunately before my time
Brian Setzer
Dave Gonzales
Darrell Higham

And Jeff Beck

Thats a fine listing of some of the best. Different strokes for JD. Proud to say got to meet James Burton and shook his hand - i'm afraid the magic didn't transfer to my right hand lol. True gentleman. Here's hoping he will one day grace our bluesfest stage Pray

While J D did not do it for me,this guy does.
The thing about Wayne Hancock is that he is a natural.
In the same as a black musican might perform soul or funk with naturalness,as a white musican,Wayne performs country with naturalness.

Well he is touring down-under mighty soon,so I have purchased front row tickets.
I hope sufficient people buy tickets so that they don't cancel.

Just on the Dylan posts above, this is years ago I was in a pub trivia night contest, and it was a tie, so the MC said the two teams can have a question and the first to answer wins..

This was in the mid 80's BTW just to put it in a time frame... anyhow the question was .. "Name three Bob Dylan Albums" I shot my hand up and said Dylan's greatest hits vol 1, vol 2 & vol 3 ... even with a protest from the other side we won..
