    i never listened to him much, until i saw him as the opening act for Eric Clapton
    he's an amazing vocalist and a great guitarist, maybe not technically which i'm sure someone while point out, but he's extremely emotional

    some of his stuff is really good, right now i'm really diggin Phone Booth and Poor Johnny

    anyone else a Robert Cray fan?
     
  2. I think he's great. His voice is amazing, and yes, he is an extremely soulful guitarist. His playing is quite deceptive, actually, as it's more difficult than it sounds.

    yeah i wouldn't doubt that at all, i haven't tried to play any of his stuff, because i don't have the tone and it would just be pointless to try.

    and yes, his voice is awesome, it's perfect for his style of blues

    he puts the music and the vocals together so perfectly and they match so well

    not to meantion he's a great songwriter, not many people would be able to write a song along the lines of Poor Johnny, which is about his wife and his girlfriend shooting and killing him, and make it sound the way it does, like if you don't listen to the lyrics, it's a great blues piece, but if you DO listen to the lyrics, it's a great story line, phonebooth is the same way, not many would think to write about seeing his ex-gf/whatever's number scratched into a wall in a phonebooth
