Jeff Fielder and I got to have a great talk when he passed through town. He’s an incredible player and plays all genres at a very high level of excellence, whether he’s playing Americana with Amy Ray, like the night I saw him… or Blues and haunting melodies behind Mark Lanegan (formerly of The Screaming Trees). We had a great chat and some laughs as you can see.

Chris Nix (guitar) and Brian Allen (bass) from Jonathan Davis’ band. What a terrific show, they both crushed it! Check out their respective interviews at and

Jim Oblon and I got to share a couple of drinks and some good cigars when he was in town with Paul Simon. Fun night and great to meet Jim in person.
