    Because of this performance I became a huge fan. My daughter got me the CD as soon it was released and we just went to see him up in Santa Barbara CA a couple of days ago. Killer show. Rock on Gary. 🎸🎶

    I found this video days after I was saying it had been a while since a blues guitarist had gotten mainstream success. I hope it continues to grow for Mr. Clark. :)

    Oprah before Trump was elected had him on and talked to him like he was just as normal as the rest of us. After the election results, he is racist!

    This is the same cognitive dissonance that has caused rampant division, if you knew the truth about both parties this song would have never been written or pandered to an agenda. It is and being a huge fan of the blues, this is outside of GCJR's comfort zone. Artist's always need to come from a place of constant creativity and I respect that, the blues is one form of music where pain is expressed no matter what the circumstances might be. I thought he would follow in the foot steps of being more like Joe Bonamassa and BB King instead of making a race baiting garbage song like this. This song is still good but the context and the media spin on it is all off, people have their parties mixed up and the lineage of history is more off base than it ever has been. I am just glad Joe stays away from this kind of subject matter because the blues is best enjoyed apolitical. Oh and #MAGA.

    Terrible, politics and music never work. Just let the music speak. The words of this song was the only reason he was a guest. I clicked on this cause I heard the song on Spotify. It sounded good. The guitar solos were in their, had a hip hop beat. Now I see him as a uninformed libtard, not a good guitar player ripping of Hendrix.

    Fair warning: If you keep calling people racists and they keep trying to tell you that they aren't, don't be surprised if *you* instill anger in them. And when you do, and you blame it on racism, just remember that you are the one responsible for rampant "racism" in 2019.
    In short, quit being the problem.
