    And not only 'a PRS', but a DGT! Hallelujah! Thanks for that post! J.H. is a monster in my opinion.

    I fortunately don't have direct experience, but the lowdown blues of "Cheatin' Woman" is great. I love this line: "You love every man with pants on. Yes a dozen to you is too few." What a dig.

    Yes, but I'll gladly take more. Jimmy Hall is a force!

    I was always a big fan of that tune. When Indiana was in the Final Four in Atlanta in 2002, Wet Willie played a gig in a small gym and I got to see them. Jimmy Hall could really belt it out.

    This guy is one of my new personal favorites...Boscoe France...he has a killer style! Not to mention he slings a PRS these days...to top it off he just so happens to be sharing the stage with our fearless leader PRSh;) Good stuff fellas!

    Most of the original players in all of those bands are taking a dirt nap! Except Rickey Medlocke who would just stay on stage and play for all the bands. Heck, Molly Hatchet is in name only, kinda like Fuel and several other bands. Kinda crappy when you pay to see a band and get a high paid tribute band instead.

    Skynyrd is doing their farewell tour now. Gary is the only original left. Well, you can kinda count Ricky on a technicality since he played drums with them in the very early days. Was recently talking about it with my brother and it hit us that Johnny has been in the band for over THIRTY years now.

    The nearly complete changeover of personnel doesn't usually turn out so well, but the Allman Brothers Band has been the biggest exception to me. They were still an incredible band to the end with only Gregg, Jaimoe, and Butch left from the original crew.

    BBS is quickly becoming my favorite band. I can't quite remember if a friend mentioned them or if I just ran across them on youtube(CRS is quickly setting in), but wow, they are the real deal. I love that they can take any of their songs and turn it acoustic without missing a beat, a sign of a great band imo. Charlie deservedly gets the most attention as their chief writer and lead singer/guitarist, but Paul is no slouch himself with those great harmonies and guitar work. I've added One Horse Town, Ain't Much Left of Me, Pretty Little Lie, and Sunrise in Texas to my basement setlist.
