We don’t normally watch regular TV, it’s usually Netflix, Hulu, etc. But last night we flipped the channel over to ABC and watched To Tell The Truth. The 2nd segment was “I’m a Blues Musician”. It was Joe and a couple of other folks who they dressed up to look like they could be “Blues” musicians. A white guy that they tried to make/ resemble a “blues brother” & a woman that they tried to dress her up like she would/could be a singer.
I was stunned that nobody on that panel knew who Joe was, of course they tried to downplay his attire, but was a typical jeans, t-shirt & jacket like I normally see him wearing when I run into him here in L.A. at our geeky guitar club dinners. I think only one of the panel guessed it was Joe.
But at the end Joe played a short song on his Dobro Duolian and blew them all away. Funny shit..!
I really didn’t know what section to put this in… If you want to move this, I’m fine with that..!

Cheers Don.
Yep when it comes to music we're not all tuned in to what's happening. When one of my sons talks about current hip hop artists etc I don't have a clue who they are.

Thanks a lot for the video (I recon you made it yourself?) 👍 :)
I'm pretty sure us folks on the east side of the pond never would get to see that clip otherwise, not on the TV at least.
Only I had hoped also to hear Joe's Dobro song, anyone got that clip?

EDIT: Found it, Joe's playing starts at 5:54. Impressive, as always.

The Guitar Joe played is a National Tricone ..not a Duolin or a Dobro ...
