Can't wait for Derek to get some apparent exposure. I mean the first time my friend introduced me to Derek Trucks' music, first with the Allman Brothers then with Derek's band I soon became a devout follower. I can't believe I still run into folks that still haven't heard him. I've run into many local "blues" musicians that had no idea about him and that were very ignorant and closed minded to him as well. I've run into folks that heard him in the Allman Brothers and they say....."he's pretty good....". What a **** ing understatement! I mean do these people not have a soul or something!?! All joking aside though, this tour will do wonders for Derek. Once the tour starts Eric Clapton will soon be asked about the amazing guitar player.....wait....musician that is playing with him and I'm willing to bet that he's going to say this is one of the greatest musicians alive and that every performance is something to behold. They'll say this guy is a way better musician than Robert Randolph. With Eric Clapton's seal of approval people will start to get into Derek Trucks, hopefully as much as I am.
