    We are ALL children of the STARS. The same iron that is in our blood is the same iron that was in a star that exploded/complete supernova millions and billions of years ago. Think about that for a quick second. Thank you Gary Clark jr. And thank you Carl Sagan. Peace to all. Good music and Good Times cheers!!! 😎🍻🌠❇🌌

    Ofcourse... Mixing rap, wierd techno stuff, and political views all into one to try and get more popular. Think im done with Gary if he keeps on this direction. I thought he was better than that, more down to earth, but he just wants to get popular and push a completed, dead agenda.

    Has anyone ever seen Gary Clark Jr do a more sloppy live performance? Don't get me wrong.. I like his music but the guitar playing in this is somewhat terrible.. good message but the delivery wasn't up to par for my taste. GCJ can do better than this.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to knock the guy, but I just don’t get what all the buzz is about with GC Jr. His guitar playing is really nothing special. Run of the mill sloppy basic blues licks. Any novice guitar player could do what he’s doing. Boring.

    Gary Clark's backing band is without energy. They have been for a long time. The bass player has no groove and the drummer plays without energy. This effects the live show and the fans feel it live. I've seen Gary live 6 times over the previous 6 years and each show seems to be getting worse than the last. I blame this on the lack of energy and strong playing by the drummer and bassist because it gives nothing for GC to feed off of. I know those two are his friends but please get rid of those 2. I'm not trying to troll or be rude but stronger and more outside of the box players mixed with GC will ultimately create a much better live, songwriting, creative, and studio performance. For those of you who disagree go listen to the difference between a Jimi Hendrix Experience record and compare that with the Hendrix Band of Gypsies record. You will the see the difference in how those two sets of musicians play.

I've always enjoyed Gary Clark jr. Music, I think is instruments breathe positivity and clarity, the words that he write a simple and straight to the point I love the song Numb ...

    How can the Colbert Report be political if Gary Clark Jr can't address the way people of his race are called, and treated in America?
    Will censoring him make the bigots and the racist government any less violent, demeaning and biased towards the people they still call 'niggers' until today?
    'This Land' is necessary and relevant right now - ALL of IT, every last word!

      Inglorious least the last name seems to fit you!..You sound completely clueless..Gary was born in Austin,TX played in the great blues club there Antone's when he was a teenager.He learned from all the great blues players in Austin.His first self released CD in 2005 was a live in the studio tribute to all his blues heroes..BB and Albert,Muddy,Jimmy Reed,Hound Dog Taylor..but sadly no Hendrix to hold up your clueless comment.He released 2 more independent CD's of his own music and was invited to play at Eric Clapton's first Crossroads show in 2010,he wasn't trying to be Hendrix there either,but he did get a major label to sign him because of that appearance.
      If you want to do the Hendrix comparison do it with SRV who was clearly influenced by Hendrix.
