I think it's a bit of a cliche to say "He's such a nice guy" but it fits SO well here. I mean, does this really seem like a guy who's toured with Eric Clapton and The Allman Brothers? Just SO "dude next door". I love that about Derek.
Yes Derek I'm sure is that person I just saw in this interview. I saw two of the Eric Clapton shows with Derek and it WAS a smokin' band. Every person on stage was a great player and/or singer.
