Just saw this guys two nights ago..and wow! He was great. He also just released a new album with Lance Lopez and Eric Gales playing on it too. Anyways, he reminds me of Kenny Wayne Shepherd with a hint of ZZ Top. He has nice hard, driving rhythms backed with excellent solos.

Apparently he is supposed to play with Eric Johnson and Robert Cray in a couple of weeks down in Mobile.

Check him out -

Yeah Wes is incredible. I kind of think of him as a Texas Jimi Hendrix.

Don't want to be an actor pretending on the stage
Don't want to be a writer with my thoughts out on the page
Don't want to be a painter 'cause everyone comes to look
Don't want to be anything where my life's an open book

Sounds like Greenday mixed with Jimmy Hendrix and some stereotypical texas flavor.

Em steve... wtf?

Yeah I love some of Wes' playing, but at times I'm just not interested.

Meh... he's pretty good. But like Derigiberble said it's just not very interesting to listen to...very plain. And his lyrics aren't that good either.

I really like this.
How is this plain?

He has a great style to him, almost metal-blues if you will.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Well maybe for some of you he isn't, but to me he is very plain. He just tries to make himself sound a little different with, like you metioned, a sort of metal sound, and behind that is very unoriginal playing. And like I said before his lyrics suck out loud.

This is just my opinion on him though, you don't have to agree, and I'm not trying to make you agree. It's just how I hear it.
Hai UG!

After further listening I agree with you.
He's really just another blues rocker using basic pentatonic licks.
