Who is your favorite Blues artist: He's not purely a blues guy, but Eric Johnson has has a big influence on my technique and sound. Of course, SRV, Robert Johnson, and BB King have also influenced my playing.
Favorite BluesEd moment: Definitely Jazz on the Green. The guys in the main act wer just so chill and easy to talk to, plus it's always fun to play for a big crowd.
