    GREAT new one from Joe.
    I'm a long term fan and don't hold grudges.

    For a man who 10 years ago made a silly throw away line about Gretsch he sure does play a lot of them now :p

    Joe B has an interesting show on PBS called "The World of Guitar". He grew up around guitars as his Dad collected/bought & sold them. Guitars are pretty much in his blood.

    There's a lot to like about Joe B. He tours constantly, records a lot, has a great guitar and amp collection, is an absolute gear nut, by all accounts a nice guy, plays with many other musicians, technically very talented, etc ... His music is pretty bland and uninspiring IMHO however. Don't hate him but own none of his music.

    I live 12 miles from Utica, NY where he grew up. I've taken lessons from and am friends with a fellow who worked in Lenny's store and has known Joe since he was a kid.

    I have heard plenty of stories about Joe, wouldn't walk across the street to meet him and it has nothing to do with his chops. Just my 2 centavos.

    Lol, I can forgive his youthful mouthing off. Actions speak louder than words, and either re really likes this guitar, or his music video team does.

    Stories have nothing to do with his youth - his adult behavior. YMMV

    Joe is one of the best "commercial" blues pop, white guys, out there. His gear wonk nerdiness is entertaining but his "American Pickers" schtick with Norm @ Norms guitar is kinda laughable. I have never underated his technical ability to play guitar.

    He may have assumed the role of hardest working man in show business.

    Joe and Beth Hart (another prodigy) together are magic.
