    KWS was good for a while, but pretty much fell into obscurity.

    Just released a new album and had an album with Stephen Stills about a year ago... I seen him about 4 months ago, was a great show.

    I know he's still making records...just not as popular as he once was. I still listen to his stuff as well.

    Always interesting how popularity works in this genre.

    Being in Canada, are you a big fan of Jimmy Bowskill? I know he's pretty big up there.

    I have never heard of him.
    A guy I like up here but 99.9% of people have probably never heard of him is Tony 'Wild T' Springer, great musician and a great guy. Dude actually had a top selling album up here years ago... So Bon Jovi asked him and his band to go on world tour with them as opening act. He was all ready to do it and was very excited because it basically would have catapulted them but just after the tour started David Bowie asked him to be his guitarist on his tour. He said he had all kinds of respect for Bowie so he Backed out of the Bon Jovi tour and went with Bowie knowing that it was a dumb business decision but musically wise he said it just made more sense and he couldn't refuse the offer.

    Yeah...I guess I get a little more exposure to newer blues musicians and bands in Texas than you might in Canada.

    I think I'd have a hard time walking away from my own music in order to play someone else's

    kws and Jonny lang have both faded, but with Mayer's shift to the blues and Gary Clark Jr not to mention Doyle Bramhall Jr the genre has gotten a nice shot in the arm recently. As to Bonnamassa? The guy is a amazing. Closest thing to a Stevie Ray Vaughn total package that the blues have seen in a long time. He has an amazing voice and is a guitar virtuoso

    Not really blues, but I love Ray Wylie. Dallas Observer just did a list of the top 50 red dirt songs ever an Snake Farm was in the top 10.

    I've tried so hard to get into this guys music and I just find it meh. Not saying it's bad, I just wouldn't miss it if I never heard it again.
