I just got home from the Crowes show here in Detroit. Listen, Luther is the best slide player Ive seen in a LONG time, besides the obvious two. Duane licks everywhere, soul spilling through the amp, and the tone was just thick enough with the sting that it made me think of a few players I know and love.

The Black Crowes are not "classic rock" per se, they are not old enough but Luther is young and plays like he has much more to say. During one of the songs, I closed my eyes and heard Duane playing Dreams, seriously. Hes got it, and I think that playing with the Crowes has brought it out. Highly recommend seeing this band.

His solo in Girl From The North Country last night supports everything you just said.
Best Detroit Crowes show in a while and Luther seemed like one of the main reasons.

I love reading this. I am seeing Black Crowes next weekend in Denver. I got chills reading your comment. Can't wait for the show and I can't wait to see NMAS in Santa Fe next month as well.

The crowes are going to rock out in Denver.

They are doing six nights at The Fillmore in San Francisco starting Monday 12/15 and I'm going on the 18th. Thanks for the review...........CAN'T WAIT. I've been a fan of Luther Dickinson for several years now and have seen NMAS four times.

Luther took over the host and teacher duties for LifeSkool Music (on demand, for most cable networks), and teaches how to play lots of classic rock songs. I always enjoy listening to him break down a song and explain it.

Hopefully they are smart enough to keep it together. Judging from the past, I would say no but maybe they have learned.

I saw the Crowes here in Chicago on Friday at the Riv........they blew the roof off the place. Incredible show.

And yes, Luther was in a world of his own all night.

You should have been at the Nashville show last month when The Crowes actually played Dreams.

Luther is great, but I think some people might say Marc Ford was pretty damn good too. Two different styles though. Luther is more Duane and Marc is more Hendrix.

At the second Wanee, Luther was the star of the show jamming with everyone. One of the highlights was the Lee Boys on stage with the NMAS (and some of the Dirty Dozen Brass band too??) doing one of those great songs on the album The Word. NMAS also did that instrumental tune of theirs that is highly influenced by the ABB/Jessica. Luther was the MVP of the Festival.

Some the NMAS's music is too abbassive power trio for me (didn't do a lot for me opening for the dTb last year) and I'm not as high on Luther's singing as playing. But like Warren Haynes, he seems to shine in the ensembles and can be one of the most entertaining players on the planet in the right setting.

I need to see him with The Black Crowes for sure.

I don't get the hero worship thing...yes.. I have listened to him play, even caught him live a few years back with John Hiatt....He can play, Imho, not an incredible talent.

BigV, Luther has continued to grow as a player since the NMAS backed Hiatt and by the looks of things will keep on keeping on. I personally wasn't a fan the first time I saw him either back in 2000 - 2001, but ... his work on Warpaint by the BC's and Electric Blue Watermelon by NMAS is pretty damn good. I can easily remember when I thought similarly as you do about Luther about a certain Mr. Trucks.

Have to agree with Hugh

War Paint and Hernando are fantastic. I play Hernando almost daily.

For anybody who lives out in San Fransisco

Bo Carper & Friends featuring Dan Lebowitz and Luther Dickinson
Jam To Go Down at S.F. Bar Connecticut Yankee

This Sunday, December 14, the very intimate (you almost have to walk on the stage to get to the pisser) Connecticut Yankee will feature New Monsoon's Bo Carper playing country-blues tracks with ALO's Dan Lebowitz backing him. This is sure to be a good time, but the really sweet part is that North Mississippi Allstar and Black Crowe Luther Dickinson will be stopping by. Dickinson will kick off a five-night stand with the Crowes at The Fillmore the following night.

We're not sure if the Yankee can accommodate the mass appreciation of Dickinson's guitar, so if you wanna get your groove on, be sure to get there early. Doors at 9, All Ages and ten bones.

BIG V...I have only been really into music for a few years now, but in that time I have seen Derek & ABB 5x Mule 3x Sonny Landreth, and listened to an unimaginable amount of music with slide guitar, so Im pretty comfortable saying that Ive seen almost everything possible on slide.

Luther is not in the same league as Derek or Warren, but who is? Ive seen so many idiots pull out a slide during a show and play some crazy easy licks, or hack the hell out of it. So when a guitarist has my full attention because its good, that is rare. He played slide on almost every song, and each time I found my self focusing on both of his hands.

He plays similar to Derek, wild picking hand, and doesnt use a pick most of the time. He plays fluid, fast, and didnt seem to miss a note. Opinions, yes everyone has them, but that doesnt mean its wrong.

Got into NMAS after seeing Bonaroo footage on HDTV. Good band and a lot of fun.

WORLD BOOGIE IS COMING!!!!

luther can friggin play. he's always had lots of abb quotes in his playing. NMAS blows me away everytime i've seen them. i'm glad Luther is getting this exposure. he's a very genuine and down to earth guy. dTb played MusicMidtown several years ago. we were watching them and up strolls luther thru the crowd. i stop him and say hey and thanks, and that we were psyched to see them play a little later on a different stage. he said thanks, and then we watched derek let loose and he just says" wow man, derek trucks!!"

i hope luther is able to ground the brothers robinson a bit, but i'm sure he knows his place and when to duck!!!!!

marc ford is great, but he's not in the band right now for whatever reason. i've been seeing the crowes since the mr. crowes garden daze, and am just so glad they are out playing great music again.
