I'm forgetting a few, but that's what happens when you get old. :(

I had heard about this artist for years, even lived in Dallas for 15 years from about 1987 until about 2002. In June of 1999, I finally went to a show to see this artist perform live, with Alien Love Child. I went on to see him perform 14 shows over the course of 29 months. I saw him perform his own compositions, covers, solo acoustic, piano, and he sings too. He is known as a guitarist but he is so much more than that.

The January 2000 recordings at Antone's in Austin, Texas for the Alien Love Child CD, 'Live and Beyond', truly showcased this artist's signature tone. ALC played three nights at Antone's, playing numerous covers, and original songs.

This artist is known for playing Strats, and I have seen him play quite a few but I have also seen him throw down on ES-335, SG Std., Les Paul Std., to name a few so, he is not a 'one guitar' artist.

His tone is NOT of this planet; he must be from another world.

His name is ERIC JOHNSON :)

The tone is all well & good, but you gotta have songs. Real songs with HEART, BALLS & FEELING. Many of my favourite artists are people whose tone I wouldn't especially rate, but the songs do it for me.
