Oh that wasn't directed at you, just prompted the thought. If you read any threads over at TGP about him those guys have a raging boner about how much they dislike him.I don't HATE the guy but what I've heard (including the clip above) leaves me meh. Nothing in his playing really grabs me and his Blues Brother / Swagger stage persona puts me off. Guy does have a mean personal collection, though.
That's a good way to put it, actually. He has a few memorable songs, but most of it is "pleasant blues rock" without much of an edge. I do enjoy listening to him, but it's not an "active" listening.I'd hate to see the rider on his homeowner's insurance policy. :lol:
He's a ridiculously talented player. However, I never felt like he developed his own musical identity--maybe he was just too good at imitating his heroes when he was young. It's your mistakes that really turn you into you.
