    Default Robben Ford fans - Any of you in here?

    I just saw a Chevrolet commercial on TV and some chick was singing "Buy you a Chevrolet...buy you a Chevrolet..." and it got me wondering if anyone in here listens to Robben Ford. A friend tipped me off about him about 10 years ago and I've been a fan ever since. The "Handful Of Blues" album is pretty much the soundtrack to my 1996, two all-time favs being When I Leave Here and The Millers Son.


    I know many of you are from California....ever see him put on a show? Just wondering how good his live show is. I've never seen him and probably never will since I live in the east coast.

    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    "I used to play the blues alone in all the local joints," he explained. 'The only thing that I can really play on guitar to this day is the blues. I heard Doc Watson and his son playing 15 years ago, and from there I got into Leadbelly and John Lee Hooker."--DLR

    If you pay attention -- what I sing, the guitar sings, too, and what the guitar says, I say.--Mississippi Fred McDowell

    "20 minutes (late to work)? Shit. Last year I woke up three weeks too late.
    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."
    - graeme on the addiction to this place.

    "something tells me that after the nuclear holocaust, there'll be twinkies, cockroaches, and a dave vs. sammy argument going on somewhere".
