ROCKIN' THE BLUES AND SHARIN' THE NEWS!

Legendary Texas Guitarist & Songwriter - #TheLastGreatBluesbreakerGuitarist

Tommy Bolin Music Festival - This Week!

In the 70's, Tommy Bolin replaced Ritchie Blackmore in Deep Purple and was a phenomenal guitarist.  When I met Tommy's brother, Johnnie Bolin, drummer and founder of the Tommy Bolin Foundation, he asked me to play shows with Glenn Hughes in support of the Foundation.  We had a rockin' good time together!

While recording my album, Miracle, Johnnie presented Tommy's acoustic version of Slow Driver that had never been released and the rest is...as they say...history.  I was so impressed with Tommy Bolin's playing and song structure that I was honored to record this with Johnnie playing drums.
