The bastard is now building his own pedals. He definitely has the best blog of anyone famous about whom I’d care to read. Whether he’s recommending CDs or showing off his new sneakers, he just has that John Thing…it may be meticulously cultivated marketing, but I always feel like I Know That Guy. He’s just a good songwriter and guitar player doing his thing. No ego, no bluster, no blingin, no drugged out tirades or trips to the county clink with a $20 hooker…just clever responses to his fame and guitar nerdisms.
