    Many greats mentioned. There is so much great music and great solos, just cannot be one, or even just a few, as that would leave deserving artists out.

    I can tell you this, not much coming from the 2000's on.

    One exception, Joe Bonamassa...

    If you do not know him, look him up, opened for BB King at age 12.

    Few thoughts here. I've seen Knopfler twice now. Might have to make it a third. I'm assuming he's playing Molson Canadian Amphitheater (Budweiser stage now)? Ok, nevermind, looked it up. Bummer, since that would have been a perfect venue, since the afterparty on Toronto Islands is always interesting. Anyway, I've seen him at Landmark Theater in Syracuse, and University of Buffalo. Both shows were amazing.


    The intro to Money still literally gives me goosebumps when played on a good system. Brothers in Arms was remastered for the SACD format, and it's one of the few albums where I'll sit in the sweet spot of my theater system with a glass of scotch, and just listen front to back. Steely Dan's Gaucho is another.

    Funny about Buckcherry. They're definitely a guilty pleasure of mine, in the same way that 80's hair bands are.

    I've seen Joe a few times. Started listening to his stuff about 10 years ago. Absolute virtuoso.

    I don't necessarily agree about the lack of true talent from the '00s on though. Just a few off the top of my head. Beck, even though he broke out in the 90's, his later stuff is excellent. Black Keys, Boy & Bear, Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters, The Heavy, a lot of Jack White stuff (even though I'm not a huge fan). Also looking at some DJ/EDM/House, even though it's electronically produced, there are some really talented folks out there. Deadmau5, RJD2, Calvin Harris, Avicci(RIP), Nora en Pure are all on various playlists of mine, even though my roots are definitely 70s and 80s rock.


    Saw these guys together with Eric Johnson years ago. Excellent show.

    And finally, for you Zep fans. Some folks think these guys are a ripoff, some think they're an amazing tribute. My wife and I butt heads over them. We're both Zep fans, and she hates them

    The G3 Concert-caught that in Cleveland. Possibly one of the best concerts I have ever been to.

    I listened to Buckcherry alot at first but haven't for awhile. Me and Keith had kept in contact for awhile but the last time I heard from him was when he emailed me about Velvet Revolver. I hadn't heard of them yet and Contraband had just came out. Keith told me he wrote one of the songs on there (Dirty Little Thing). Found out later he was supposed to be part of VR but they had a falling out. Anyway, never heard from him after that. That was around 2005 or 2006. I did go to Crue Fest in 2007 and they played there but I didn't get to talk to him.

    Joe Grushecky is another great. He has played with Bruce Springsteen to some extent before. He is a special ed teacher here locally. I met him around 2006 backstage at the Donnie Iris concert (my mother and aunt knew Donnie really well and got me backstage passes). Anyway, met Joe G there. Very nice guy and a heck of a guitar player.

    Seems not many know of him outside the Pittsburgh and Cleveland area. Surprised you have being that far away....lol. He actually grew up about 2 miles from my house. My dad used to live next door to him way back. My aunt used to hang out at his house with him and his wife back in the early 80's. In one of his album covers he is wearing my grandfathers old police pants. He ended up splitting the crotch out in them on stage one night. In the late 80's he started a mortgage brokerage and my mother sold real estate then started doing appraisals. She used to talk to him a couple times a week. His office is a couple miles from where my moms office was. We see him around here often. Sheetz, WalMart, Eat & Park. We went to his concert this past summer and the summer before. He doesn't know me other than when I was backstage 10 years ago and last year it was just me and my wife at the concert so I didn't talk to him. This year my mother and step-father went and we talked to him before the show. And former Steeler Louis Lipps was there. Donnie announced him and pointed him out in the front row.
    Here are a couple of pics. First is me, my mother, and Donnie before the show this summer. The 2nd was when my mom ran into him at WalMart a few months ago and she got this pic to tease me cause we had just bought our tickets to the show...lol
