The Wild are back in action tonight, and for the first time in a while I won't be watching. "BUT WHY!???" I'm sure you just asked in shock (wait, you mean you're NOT obsessed with my daily schedule? Weird). Well, I'm the one with the power to write, so whether you want to know or not, here it is: my HS band has a concert tonight, so I will catch up after that's over.
On to our music... I've never been much of a fan of John Mayer, but he is a killer guitar player, and Steve Jordan on the skins is one of the grooviest drummers around. This trio is just stellar. Really great blues going on here.
