The new videos on WGV have done bad things for my productivity level at work. Some real gems so far.

I'm a huge fan of David Torberts singing voice tone.
Interstingly, he is playing a Strat on Wild Northland... I can't see who is playing bass on that one... Mathew Kellly maybe.
I am also a huge fan of Robbie Hoddinott's lead guitar playing, and these vids show him playing some nice solo's.
Very Cool.

Also a big fan of Robbie H. Years ago...ok 35 years ago... we had a tape of a show at My Father's Place. First I had ever heard of Kingfish. We all thought they said Robert Hunter on guitar...for a while there I thought that Hunter could really play a mean Tele. Live and learn. Hoddinott is amazing. From what I understand a very bad drug problem...not sure if he is still alive...but that rhythm section and his playing made for some amazing grooves.

He went to prison for a while on something drug related. I think he's out now.
Such a long, long time to be gone, and a short time to be there...

^ Same here. Both guys are really great in their craft. Thanks for sharing the video clip. It is worth watching over and over again.

Search for Robbie's full name on YouTube for some fairly current status.

Thanks Smolder. Just did this ...there's a short vid and it just looks like Robbie's telling people he's still alive. Would be very cool if everyone here commented on this vid. He gave a lot and a little thanks might go a long way. Tell your friends...tell your family...lets get this thing to go viral.
