Went to see him inconcert last night.  i know a lot of people think he lives in snoozeville but the man has such a unique "touch" on the guitar.  he has such subtlety over dynamics- half his notes barely ring but the fact they are there all adds to the sound. and he gave Sultans Of Swing a darn good spanking.
and his!   i was a gibson las paul convert for 2 hours yesterday (don't worry, i'm feeling better now!)
I defy anyone to not be moved by Brothers in Arms - if he comes to your area, no matter your taste in music,  GO SEE HIM.  he is a walking guitar lesson.

I agree he is a terrific player and song writer. Huge tone and very humble guy. His right hand work is amazing. [^]
