Saw Dan Patlansky live at a small theater recently. Amazing show. The way he makes his guitar talk was incredibly exciting. You can hear a lot of his influences - Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix and Rory Gallagher among others, but somehow he make it all his own. He's currently touring Europe at the moment, so if he plays near you, I'd highly recommend that you go see him before he's gobbled up by the machine. Definitely one to watch.
