    Well, I was kinda new to him when I watched this. I basically knew him from Kenny Wayne? Shepherds film, where he plays guitar and violin, so I knew he was a multi instrumentalist.
    In short, I’m still in the learning face of some of the blues greats :-)

    I had never? seen Gatemouth play the harmonica, had only seen him play guitar and violin.
    Man, what a musician, a true multi-instrumentalist. I’m so impressed now!

    I had the honor to get to? know Gate from the mid 80′ till he passed. He always told me he thought music could heal and bring people together unlike anything else. He let me walk Him out on stage on his last New York gig at BB King’s place and told the crowd how much He appreciated me driving from North Carolina to be with Him. I have never been so honored. He will always be The Man!!
