This guy is one of the best. The stuff he’s been doing the last few years with Jake Hooker and Amber Digby is just awesome. I was driving down 16th St. in Indianapolis in about 1970 when “I’ll Be There ” (Johnny Bush) came on the radio, and his solo totally knocked me out. When I heard that I knew I had to get me a steel guitar. He played with Faron before I did, and according to band stories, he’d get “right” and stay up all night on the bus on long trips and work on his guitar, changing knee levers around or whatever, and have parts left over, but would be ready for the gig that night.
