Gary Clark Jr.

Texas guitarist Gary Clark, Jr. has been compared to guitar icons like Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and his playing is a powerful and inspired mix of blues roots with contemporary soul and hip-hop, and when he's rolling at his best, he sounds like nothing so much as a natural hybrid of both the past and the future of the blues. Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Clark first picked up a guitar at the age of 12 and spent his teens playing whatever gig he could get in the Austin area, eventually meeting Clifford Antone, promoter and owner of Antone's, the city's premier blues club, who began featuring Clark at his venue. An amazing live performer, Clark soon became one of the brightest players on Austin's blues and rock scene. He released an independent album, 2005's Tribute, followed by a pair of self-produced albums in 2008 for Hotwire Unlimited, 110 and Worry No More. An EP, Gary Clark Jr., also appeared from Hotwire in 2010.

But Clark was far from just a one-trick pony guitar gunslinger. He could also sing, write, and arrange. He wrote the original score for the film Full Count and also appeared as an actor in John Sayles' 2007 film Honeydripper. In 2010, Clark was selected by Eric Clapton to perform at the Crossroads Guitar Festival, and a DVD of the show featuring Clark led to a recording deal with Warner Bros. Clark was soon in the studio working on his major-label debut. An EP called Bright Lights was released in 2011 in advance of the new album, Blak and Blu, which appeared in the fall of 2012. His next release was the impressive two-disc Live, recorded during an 18-month-long tour behind Blak and Blu, and one that perhaps better represented Clark's wild, impassioned, and often elegantly graceful live sets. After more touring, including dates opening for the Rolling Stones and the Foo Fighters, Clark released his second major-label studio set, 2015's The Story of Sonny Boy Slim. ~ Steve Leggett

Dear Mr. Clark, I was lying in bed this peaceful Saturday morning listening to music while dozing in and out, when all of a sudden your song came on. It grabbed be by the shorties and yanked me awake. What a gigantic sound. Inspired me to start placing comments. I hope you read this so you know that you've left me awestricken. Thanks for that.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed by the love of your life on the nearest Friday. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this on 5 other songs, your will be dead in 2 days. Now you read this post this on 5 other songs in the next 143 minutes

He is outstanding I am so glad the late great Stevie Ray Vaughan's brother Jimmy Vaughan got him noticed.Gary Clark Jr. The Black Keys Joe Bonamassa Cage The Elephant Red Fang and Rival Sons give me hope for the future of rock and roll. Because the majority of current rock acts are some of the most horrible music I have ever heard, and it is sad to say this but that is how I see it . Most music whether it be pop, rap or alternative music is in a serious decline and has a serious lack of talent.

Supposed to see him on 7/4/15 at the Foo Fighters blow-out, but with Grohl falling off the stage a few weeks ago, not sure that'll happen. Clark was in Sonic Highways, too. There was a tribute to While My Guitar Gently Weeps. Check it out on YouTube. Awesome! Gary Clark Jr Dave Grohl Joe Walsh While My Guitar Gently Weeps
