Lie to me and tell me everything is all right

Fun Fact of the Week

"Lie to Me", Jonny Lang, (1998)

Definition of PRODIGY

1  a portentous event : omen  b : something extraordinary or inexplicable
2 an extraordinary, marvelous, or unusual accomplishment, deed, or event b : a highly talented child or youth 

All of the above...

Jonny Lang was 12 years old when he first picked up a guitar. By 14, he was fronting the largest blues band in his hometown of Fargo, North Dakota and putting out his first record. By 15 he was signed by A&M records, and by 16 he released his amazing “Lie to Me” album, with the single of the same name.

His album went multi-platinum and he has since toured with the likes of Buddy Guy, The Rolling Stones, B.B.King, Blues Traveller, Jeff Beck, and Sting.  Eric Clapton invited him to appear on his “Crossroads ‘94” concert.

If you ever have a change to see this now 20 year old, you will be blown away. I have seen him twice and both times I was stunned by how gifted he is!

Thanks Buwimiss! Jonny would be happy. He is touring all across the U.S. now and this summer with a few dates in Canada. I have not heard it yet, but intend to get my mitts on his new album "Live at the Rymans". Cheers!
