Its a shame that he doesn't get the recognition he deserves.

To me he's the most underrated guitarist in the ABB family by a huge, huge margin.

love, love , love Jack Pearson. I just about got my head took off on another thread for having the audacity to suggest that Jack and Tommy Talton could play with the rest of the brothers for four or five special shows a year after Warren and Derek leave the band.

I am a big Jack fan. He was the MVP of the show. When people came to our hotel room after the concert, the heads were shaking and everyone just said "Jack Pearson"....

Jack Pearson's slide playing was off the charts in All my Friends. For those that are around Nashville, Jack is celebrating his B-day with friends.

From review of All My Friends on Jambands.com:

quote:
Best Humble Guitar Hero Moment: There are actually too many instances of brilliance on the part of Jack Pearson to discuss: his slow dance with Halls harp on Melissa; his channeling of Duane Allman on Statesboro Blues; the swap-offs with Derek Trucks on Stand Back; his jazzbo excursion on Let This Be A Lesson To Ya just for starters. But if you had to single out one tune from 1/10/14 to best describe Pearsons ability and attitude, Aint Wastin Time would have to be it. He puts his own spin on the mid-song break (Dickey Betts was on slide for the original, post-Duane), then takes off on a flight path of his own on the outro. The solo is powerful, yet tasteful; Pearson takes his time building the beast, topping things off with a salvo fired from somewhere around the bridge pickup on the treble string. As amazing as it is to listen to, Im sorry: you gotta watch the video, as well. Pearson looks like hes waiting for the bus while everyone else in the Fox Theatre is picking their jaw up off the floor.

Watching the video - Jack was the star of the show!

When the tix went on sale, and when I heard the initial guest line-up (mainly all the "hat singers"), I had no interest. When I hear that Jack (and Chuck and Jimmy - and Vince Gill) were in the band, I became very interested. By then, the tickets had sold out.

If somebody told me they thought Jack was the best guitarist to ever play with the ABB ... I wouldn't be able to offer too much of an argument.

Well, I'm with you on your choice. Jack is just amazing & Tommy Talton is quite a guitar player, has good history with Duane & Gregg, and Tommy can sing filling that void left by Warren. 2 of my favorites.

Jack joining the ABB once again would be much interest to me.

It's nice to know someone could see this as a good thing besides me.

If the band does continue without Derek and Warren, Jack Pearson would probably be the best they could do.

A lot of my skepticism about the band continuing derives from the fact that I doubt Jack wants the gig. But if he wants it, I don't think there are many ABB fans who would argue that he is the right man for the job.

I only had the chance to see Jack with the Brothers in 98 at Saratoga, but damn he left an impression. He is truly tasteful and sophisticated as they come. It would be excellent to see him with the ABB again.

Jaimoe is quoted in Gregg's book that he, Jaimoe, feels that Jack more than any other player brought that true Duane Allman-ish ABB sound to the table (paraphrasing)
...as Gregg said about that comment, "High praise indeed"
