Luther Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars shows off his signature Gibson guitar
Just got off the phone with gifted guitar dude Luther Dickinson, who brings his band, the North Mississippi Allstars, to Vancouver's Rio Theatre next Friday (January 24).
Man am I psyched about seeing that show. The Allstars were awesome when they opened for Robert Plant's Band of Joy back in 2011. And the trio's new album World Boogie is Coming—which I just scored a copy of last week—is bloody amazing. (Kinda bummed I didn't hear it in time to put it it on my Top 10 of 2013.)
My interview with Dickinson—my first since 2005, when the NMA played the Commodore on a bill with She Stole My Beer—will be in next week's Straight. In the meantime, here's a clip of him fawning over his signature Gibson ES-335 guitar, which hit stores recently.
"I can play it all night and all day and all night," he raves.
