Tour Update

So the other night, John Molo and I got a chance to sit in with the Allman Brothers on the tune “Southbound”. To sit in with those guys is intimidating, to say the least.  There I was, trading guitar licks with Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes and hanging on for dear life.  It was frightening…and about the most fun I’ve had with my pants on.  I have to say that watching Derek play slide (particularly from that close), is nothing short of a religious experience.  It’s unreal.  The guy is fucking amazing.  

Warren is no slouch.  He’s got the serious triple threat going:  guitar playing, writing songs and singing. Not to mention he’s about the nicest guy on the planet.  A true gentleman.

We just got done playing a show with the Black Crowes.  Chris Robinson came up to sing and play “Sugaree” with us.  He’s got some pipes, boy….  It was a great jam and he positively nailed the tune.  He too, was very kind and very much a gentleman.  

So that’s the update so far.  A couple more Allman Brothers shows and then my band heads out for a few California dates.  After that, PLF is off to New York City for a 14 – show run at the Nokia Theater!!!
