Weird, I could have SWORE I posted in this thread at some point. (ok, who deleted muh ****!?)



seriously, Kenny Wayne is fantastic. The first time I heard any of his stuff was when the local rock station was playing his debut album, Ledbetter Heights. I was blown away and even MORE so when I found out that he was 17 yrs old when he recorded it.

The first track I ever heard was the song Deja Voodoo (check the official vid below, even though it's really missing probably a good 45-60 seconds off of the intro). Pay attn to the guitar playing, both from the beginning as well as the solo which starts at about the 2:10 mark in the video below. Dude was 17 when he recorded that! Second solo starting around the 3:20 mark.

:omg:

This kid was just OOOOZING with Stevie Ray Vaughan! :bow:

This is SUCH a freaking cool tune. The version in this vid is really an all-out bluesy jam. if you can get your grubby mitts on a studio version, check it out! You won't be disappointed.
