Too many to mention – everything. I’ve discovered The Black Crowes fairly recently and really like their sound and approach to rock.
What makes playing music with Open G fun?
We all just get along and like the same music. We play rock and blues and light it up. I get to play and let it rip with guys who know how to do that.
