Derek Trucks: one of the guitar greats

Although this is a motorcycle blog, I have to make an exception and mention the brilliant Tedeschi-Trucks Band gig at the Palace Theatre in Melbourne that we attended last night. I’m lost for superlatives to describe how good they were and the brilliance of Derek Trucks’ guitar playing. We heard our favorites such as ‘Midnight in Harlem’, ‘Any Day’,’Bound for Glory’ and a heap of tracks from their forthcoming album ‘Revelator’. (Our favorites were songs we’d seen them play on the various Eric Clapton “Crossroads” Festival DVD’s). Their encore number was a superb version of ‘Space Captain’ (Original by Leon Russell & Joe Cocker). Susan T’s soulful vocals were stunning and she’s become an extremely skillful guitarist in her own right.
The support act was the ‘Robert Randolf Family Band’ a group well worth seeing in their own right!
