When the sixteen year old guitar prodigy first came onto the airwaves, I was in my late twenties. I think it was actually an old girlfriend that introduced me to his music.
Down home Louisiana Blues with smokin’ guitar riffs had me hooked. For the next twenty two years, I’ve listened and hoped for the chance to see him live.
With a stroke of luck on getting a ticket, that finally happened last night at the Talking Stick Showroom in Scottsdale.
The band came out on fire, playing some great covers, including a version of the Sex Pistols “God save the Queen”, which I still can’t believe happened.
They then slowed things down with a couple of love songs, then went into some BB King classics, then returned to some more KWS classics.
The night ended with Kenny Wayne Shepherd playing his version of the Great Jimi Hendrix classic, Voodoo Child.
