    Any exposure to blues rock is a good thing and will expose people to music they may not have heard. I heard / read recently that old music is starting to out sell new released music which proves that good music never dies, it just needs to be exposed to people that have not heard it before for them to realize what good music is. Long live blues Rock !

    These 3 guys were so good I though this was an established 3 man band. I had no idea the 2 guys were contestants until I started researching Gary Clark Jr.

    If those 3 guys cut an album together I would buy it right now.
