Me and Mr. Dave

We recently caught a David Lindley show here in the States. I'm a huge fan of his music both the fun stuff like El Rayo X and his excellent instrumental offerings, whether pairing up with Ry Cooder where he'll feature a variety of stringed instruments like Weissenborn Hawaiian guitars, Turkish Oud, fiddle, mandolin - you name it. He's a noted studio musician and live accompanist, having played with folks as diverse as Jackson Browne, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Terry Reid, Linda Ronstadt etc.

We met backstage. I paid my respects and exchanged tour tales and we had this photo taken. The WA song, Wings of Desire was directly influenced by David Lindley's music. I highly recommend checking out his catalogue. He's a lot of fun.
