Holy Crap! That's Extreme Pedal Steel



At Patrick McGee recommendation I checked out Robert Randolph on Youtube. This guy goes Hendrix on the pedal steel. I almost expected him to light the damn thing on fire.

The dude is awesome. I've always been a fan of Jimi Hendrix and anyone who can play him as good as RR does is okay in my book. And I'll have you know, sir, that because of you and your interesting taste in music, I have added almost another gigabyte of new music to my collection since I started reading your blog. If you keep this up I'll have to invest in a bigger system.

**Hey!** You're stimulating the economy! Probably even better than GB did.

Donna and Mike, I'm surprised he isn't well known, though I may be totally out of the loop since I don't get out much any more.

Jeff, you probably figured out that you can access more of his stuff from the side bar at Youtube.

Darev, The thanks go to Patrick McGee for shining a light on this guy. So you added one gig, eh? Have you browsed my archives for other musical articles? You might want to pick up a couple more gigs.
