    I saw him about a year ago and he was doing pretty damn good for 75. I never would have guessed he was that old from the way he looked.
    He's been fighting a bad shoulder, I know...
    Sounded better than ever.
    (my ears are still ringing from those 2X Marshall 50s) It erased my hearing / blasted me right out of the seat. :lol:

    Saw Jeff many moons ago with Mahavishnu Orchestra on the bill.

    Jeff is an incredible talent.

    Happy 75.

    Keep using the hair dye that Ron Wood is using.................or is it a wig?

    Saw him a bunch of times, he is still playin great, best show I saw was him and Santana at Jones Beach, he played a bunch of stuff off of the Guitar Shop album, translated live very well, no one else can coax those those sounds outta a Strat!

    He did cancel shows twice on me when I had tiks, long ago with Rod Stewart and a few years ago with an all girl band..

    First saw Jeff in the Yardbirds, and had several long natters with him backstage, and when Seymour was fettling guitars for him in the Soundhouse - it was Jeff said if I wanted to use my nails rather than picks, I should do what suited me... but the bastards would go all cagey whenever I got too close to seeing the wiring in the axes :)
