I posted a pic of him and nobody could recognize him. Please tell me somebody here likes/has heard of Pat Travers!

I like "Snortin' Whiskey" and "Boom Boom." The only other song of his I heard much is "Crash and Burn," which isn't that good. I have a C.D. around somewhere that I don't listen to too often. I'll have to try listening to a little more. The man is one hell of a guitarist.

Same boat as ufossuck; heard some songs and I like him, but haven't heard a whole lot. Snortin' Whiskey is very fun, I like the little riffing break in the middle.

he was in Canadian Whiskey right?

Brough EDIT: Wait, never mind, that was the name of the article I read on him

Yah, I know of him, I think I actually may have his Crah and Burn album around here somewhere. Loves my blues rock.

Upon examining the copy of Crash and Burn I forgot I had, it comes to my attention that you actually posted a picture of Pat Thrall. No wonder I didn't guess it.

I love Pat Traver and he had tons of really good material that just never got played much. I have seen him several times and even worked for him at a few shows. The guy is a very under rated guitar player and his music is really cool. Lots of cord changes and different time signatures which is why he probably didn't hit it as big as many others. People seemed to be more into the straight forward 4/4 stuff. I've seen Pat be a supporting act at many stadium shows bac in the day and he always had monster musicians in his band lie guitarist Pat Thrawl, Tommy Aldrige ( played in Ozzy's Band ) and bassist Peter Mars Cowling. I've aways been a Pat Travers fan and even worked for him doing guitar tech stuff on a few shows. I'm in a band right now doing some of his material along with other songs by Trower, Zep, Frampton, Montrose, chicken foot, UFO and Journey ( pre Steve Perry Stuff) to name a few. It's really fun playing some of that old stuff and some of it wasn't easy to play. I also love playing original metal stuff and my song writing is kinda a mix between some of the bands mentioned and classic metal like Anthrax, Testament and the like.
