    I've been desperately trying to remember a name, and I'm so glad I remembered it for this thread. Why, because this man in my opinion epitomizes soul and blues all rolled into one. He's a big man, with a big heart, but sadly no longer with us.

    His name Michael (Iron Man) Burks, singing Empty Promises. I really hope you enjoy it, and check out some of his other stuff..

    I did a quick search and I guess youre right. I mistakently thought that since he used a tele for Stairway that the tele was in use on 2 and 3.

    What a great tone. I never paid attention before, but he's strictly a thumb picker like Wes Montgomery. Don't see a lot of that.

    If you don't have about 9.5 minutes to watch, go to about 3:50 and about 5:20, and around 9:00.

    Oh yeah.. I remember when I first heard that. I thought "~#:%".. incredible. JB at his best in my opinion. The band as a unit are tighter than a ducks derriere.. Those who diss JB really need to take a look at that performance and think deeply.. ;):D
