If you haven't seen Junior Brown yet, you need to guit with it! Junior Brown is coming to town from Austin with his guit-steel, a unique hybrid contraption that's part electric guitar and part country steel guitar. People call him a cross between Jimi Hendrix and Ernest Tubb, and his new album, Down Home Chrome, features a seven-minute cover of "Foxy Lady." But there's a lot more to say about Junior Brown. There's the fact that he's just about the best surf guitarist around, for example. Or that he's a wonderful composer of traditional country songs, the kind in which each outrageous pun leads you deeper into an emotional blind alley. Or that "My Wife Thinks You're Dead" is one of the funniest songs in existence. Come check out the performer voted #1 House Rocker by the readers of Guitar Player!
