Mark McGhee; who I think is very talented. Not too keen on Scott, having seen him with the band twice. Never saw Val; but Robben, Mark, and certainly Jack have much better chops, in my opinion.

I saw scott sharrard recently I thought he was pretty good,IMHO he is not allowed to showcase his guitar skills as much with this band as say his own.But the ultimate guitar player to play for gregg has been Jack pearson he is just awesome he can give warren and derek a run for their money anyday I wish I had went a GAF show in 2006 when jack was subbing in.

How can anybody forget Buzz Feiten??? He did a tour w/ GAF along with Mark McGee who is very good as well. Seriously Buzz was incredible. I am a huge Jack Pearson fan, but ... let's not go crazy here. While Jack may be every bit as good as Robben or Buzz, better??? I don't think so and I believe Jack would too.

I don't know about that. I saw GA&F last night, and Scott was given a whole lot freedom to execute and did a bunch of extended leads. I was on 2nd row center and watched his playing, and he was doing some pretty intricate things on guitar. I'd say he's quite an accomplished guitar player, and I'd have to think Gregg would agree with that statement.

Gregg has used several lead players over the years - each with his own style. All have been good, each brings something fresh to the band, and this helps make the sound evolve over time. I think Scott more than holds his own.

I've seen two shows this week of Gregg and Friends.
I think Scott has improved over last year and he sounded good.
Also Scott is singing chorus with Gregg. I like that sound!

Love Jack and Buzzy did a great job as well....but Robben Ford wins out in my book. Saw the Cleveland show and it was literally unbelievable.

Mark Emerick also played with Gregg and Dickey as well. He is Commander Cody's lead guitarist, has been for quite a while.

Robben Ford was very good but did not seem to be intimately
familiar with the Gregg or ABB tunes, imo? I saw Robben with Phil
& Friends and thought the same thing. Or maybe he likes to be
a bit more ... unique. As his, Robben's, reputation preceeded him
I was not as impressed as I thought I would be when I saw him with
both bands. My expecations where probably too high. I was thinking
WOW, Gregg with Robben on guitar, how great is this going to be.
Again, he was really good just not smooth or in the Gregg groove, imo.
Saw Scott on his first tour with Gregg last year, twice, and I like him.
McGee, Buzz, Val, Jack(of course) were all great and brought their
own small flavor to Greggs sound. The moral of the story, Gregg has
some pretty good taste when it comes to pickin' "pickers".

I saw GAF at the Florida Theatre around 2000 and Jack was filling in because the regular guy was injured or sick. That was a great show. GAF isn't about the guitars, though. They are more about mixing styles and sounds. I'd like to see Gregg expand the setlist because he has done so many great songs. Take some chances and this band could really transport the audience. It's just when they do the same songs I feel it limits the creative playing. I know he has to play a few of the hits to please the crowd, but if the rest of the songs would be different from night to night, this band would easily take themselves and the audience to the next level.

Didn't Mike Barnes also play with Gregg. I only saw him guest with the ABB in Gilford, NH. The funny part is that he and his wife/girlfriend were sitting beside us. He disappears and all of the sudden he is on stage.

I know that Mike was supposed to play with Gregg, but ... something happened ... I'm not sure, but ... I believe ... Mike's wife/girlfriend has been sick. Someone posted here that Warren donated a beautiful Les Paul to be sold to raise money for her medical bills. I can only assume that this was the reason. The few times I've seen Mike he is a heck of a player who I'd love to see and hear more of.

Thanks. Yeah I seem to remember that through the cobwebs in my brain. It was pretty funny when he guested. My buddy was chatting with him then he ends up on stage. My friend looks over and says "Wasn't that the guy next to us?". Hard to judge from a song but he seemed quite good but maybe a little nervous which is to be expected.

Hope she is doing better.

I'd certainly say with no problem that I think he is better than either of them.

McGee, Buzz, Val,


Saw Val M. with Gregg in Dec. of '06. Not bad, kind of feel about his playing the same way you described Robben's. Good, but not in the groove...
