Do you like gritty, bluesy guitar rock? Silly question, of course you do. Gary Clark, Jr. is a (relatively) new guitar sensation, rocking his favorite 1953 Gibson ES 125 with the feel of an old bluesman, though he’s only 27. Springing out of the fertile Austin music scene, Clark, Jr. blends hard-driving bluesy rock with a guitar virtuosity reminiscent of the greats. In fact, Eric Clapton picked him as the lone newcomer at the 2010 Crossroads Guitar Festival. Check out these live versions of “I Don’t Owe You A Thing” and “Bright Lights,” the title track from his major label debut EP, and see if you agree.
