I'm a fan too. I really liked his over the top playing on their first c.d. and even though he is playing a little more reserved on Black Stone Cherry's 2nd release, his playing is still top notch, and I love the green luddy's. I wonder if the vintage snare in the cd pics came from Uncle Fred, Of the Kentucky Headhunters..lol.
But yes I really enjoy his playing and their music in general.
BSC is my favourite band and i really like john's style and ofcourse his ludwig is pretty damn awesome. for me both of their albums are brilliant and they dont have a bad song on them. i also met them at download festival, really nice guys. their a band i really hope go far
I like every song too, second album is quite diverse with the feel from song to song, "Soulcreek" and "Devil's Queen" I usually keep on repeat through at least 3 plays each..lol. "Lonley Train" and "Rain Wizard" from the first....or "When the weight comes down".......or about all the rest..LOL.
I had heard too from someone else that were very down to Earth guys.
yea they were supposed to be leaving straight after to meet back up with def leppard and whitesnake but they stayed talking to us for a while which is cool. im loving sunshine and the bitter end atm from the new album
