I doubt many of you are familiar with him, but I really like his Rockabilly style, with tons of great guitar hooks ala Jason and the Scorchers. I'm listening to his "It Came From Nashville" reissue as I type this. The original from 1986 is regarded as his best and this reissue from last year only adds to it with many new tracks to make a total of 26. I only have this and "Acres of Seude", which, while not too bad, can't touch the reissue.

Anyway, the show is outdoors at Long's Park in Lancaster, PA, and it's FREE. I only hope we don't get rained on.

I saw Webb in a little dive in Huntsville in '93- puts on a hell of a good show. Gotta love those vintage Rickenbacker guitars.

Yeah, they were having scattered thunderstorms in Lancaster (daughter lives there) and, since it was an outdoor show, we decided to stay home rather than drive an hour to get there only to be stuck in our car. Now if I had paid for tickets, I would have gone just in case the rain would stop.

Saw an ad in the paper,
Said "to hell with it all"
Took a gig with the circus
As a human cannonball...

Wild, wacky stuff. And yes, vintage Rickies rule!

Sorry the weather didn't cooperate, dude.
