Though Joe does several different styles, he is a very good electric blues guitarist. Every time I hear "If Heartaches Were Nickels" I get chills. His DVD at Pierre's in Fort Wayne is a great DVD. Check it out if you haven't yet.

He's an absolute wizard with blues and rock chops to burn. He seems to be moving more towards the rock end of the spectrum lately, but I hope to see him in Philly at the end of the month. I'll post a review on my blog. He's what I call "scary good". And he's a great blues singer.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Mar-05-06 AT 10:24 AM (EST)]Wolf,

Have you heard his Blues Deluxe album?

I generally agree that rock guitarists are over the top, and Joe does a bit of that. But I really like this album.

And I have to say that I do love most of his influences (60's Clapton, for instance). So I enjoy his music.
