Nasty Nate

Dont get me wrong, I love Trucks, but does he wear the same plaid shirt every day? Everytime I see pictures of him he is wearing that shit.

Now this looks like it was the real NYE show. Kirk West is a nut, last year he wore a wizard suit at midnight. Most of Derek's influences didn't have much expression while they played. If you want to see music pour out of someone's soul, watch derek play. If you want to see big hair jumping around stage busting their ass, see jim james. not that there's anything wrong with jim james...Also, I think he borrows most of his clothes from Jimmy Herring.

Excellent Show! You just can't go wrong with three Beatles covers from Derek Trucks! I'm not to sure about the opening band though. They left much to be desired, which i guess made Derek Trucks that much more enjoyable.

Dude, Susan Tedeschi is so hot. I know, I know: I shouldn't "objectify" her because she is also an incredible, amazing guitarist with a powerful, passionate voice. But, you know, she's also really hot.

I guess I never noticed before that Derek is always wearing that shirt. That's hilarious. I've gotta buy more of his cd's so he can buy some new clothes :)

Anyway, great pics! As the NYE show pics roll in on jambase, it just makes me wish more and more that I could've been... everywhere for New Years!!

Nate- first pic of Derek I had the same thought, is it the same shirt, or does he own 30 of them? Maybe in an effort to focus on kicking ass on the guitar, he just owns one shirt, therefore spending no effort on deciding what to wear.

Has anyone ever seen a photo of Derek with his hair down?

maybe it's a clip on ponytail.

Anybody see him last night on Conan?

Haha. You people are funny. No body language,,,same shirt as last time. Lol. I guess you were all too young then, but nobody questioned when JG wore the same black tee every show, and didn't grimace, jump around, and pull out all those "rock star" moves. The beauty of Derek is exactly what you questioned. He is the the "Buddha". No wasted movement. Simple beauty of music flowing through body. The best guitarist out there today. Not just my opinion either,,,many people I talk to, who know their shit, have seen him and know it too. Wish I'd been there, but live too far away. DTB, please come back north soon.

Thanks to the photographer for capturing Mike Mattison on film. The last two reviews of the DTB/SSR with pictures have had him, but several before(at least two that I remember) that, did not. Looks like it was a GRAND time at the Fox Theatre!

ALREADY FREE will be released in 2 days. If you get it at Best Buy for $9.99(a freakin' steal!) it also is a "Best Buy Exclusive" and has three bonus studio tracks, as I understand it.

the beatles covers at the end were a really nice touch. The show was incredible. Not to sure about the opening band though, I thought it was just house music at first until I saw the people on stage.
