Went to Yoshi's in Oakland to see the late show of Lenny White's Anomaly. Awesome band, Lenny, Vince Evans on keys, great bass player, Jimmy and another monster on guitars. As we walked to our car afterward, who should slip out of the side door for a smoke but Jimmy Herring. We went up to say hello and the guy could not have been nicer. Talked about the band, the set, Derek Trucks ("He's my brother-he's like my little brother. And of course you know I've been trying to rip off all his licks for years! I remember when Duane Trucks couldn't reach the pedals when he sat down at the drums-now he's getting really good")....stuff like that. A few other fans came by - he posed for pics - hugged my wife and daughter.

I've now met Herring, Oteil Burbridge, Todd Smallie, Derek Trucks and Jack Pearson, all jaw-dropping talents, and all down-to-earth, gracious people. Reaffirms my faith.

Did you happen to ask if he's really leaving WSP? Rumors flying over on the 'hook boards...

No I didn't ask him. I hadn't heard that rumor, and I probably wouldn't have put him on the spot even if I had.

VERY COOL!!

I had the good fortune to chat with him for a few minutes after he sat in with dTb @ Great American Music Hall (SF) in Feb.'05 He is a really nice guy, in fact, I had dropped my boss's gas CC & he was kind enough to point it out to me

Cool story.

I thought Jimmy fit real well in WSP. I've seen a couple of shows since he started playing with them, all were great.

I met Jimmy a few years back after a Project Z show, and agree that he is really nice and down to earth. Glad you had a similar experience.

As far as Jimmy leaving WSP, I am not sure that I would believe it. The WSP crew has been known to start rumors about this, especially when there is a break in touring. A few years back they were saying that Sonny was leaving and Marc Q was joining. Jimmy was the first choice for WSP, and wouldnt see that changing (unless Jimmy has something else he wants to do).

How about leaving WSP and joining the Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi Band.

I guess this is how rumours are started.

I'd LOVE to hear that band, but doubt that it will happen. I think Derek loves Jimmy more than Susan (watch their faces when they play) and Susan wouldn't put up with it''''''''''Not that there's anything wrong with it
