  1. In a often cynical world, it's stories like this that give me hope for the future of music. I was fortunate enough to meet Susan and Derek in L.A. last year.. and they really are as humble and genuine as they appear.

  3. Love them but she looks old to be 47. She's always looked like an older woman even when she was in her late 20's but the glasses and these dresses she wears now just make her look like she could be Derek's mom. It helped when he grew a beard because when he is shaved he looks like a kid. Couple that with her looking alot older than she is and its always just looked weird to me. They dont look like a couple but more like mom and son.

  5. I remember seeing these guys in Melbourne Aus afew years ago and Susan lost her voice after about 4 songs and the back up singers took over. They didn't miss a beat…and the backing band played a killer jam for about 20mins. Mr Trucks was on fire that night,i think he was a little pissed over the whole thing. Amazing impromptu gig.

  6. I THINK I saw Derek when I was a bouncer at a Downtown riverfront restaurant-bar called Harbormasters. They had a band playing one Sat. afternoon and this kid comes out to play and everybody jaw dropped. Somebody help me out if they know.

  14. Been going to concerts for over 50 years, the TTB is one of the best I’ve ever heard. But, it’s the B not just the T & T that brings the show. Can’t wait to see them live again – truly, magic.

  16. Still living..he ranks pretty darn high..higher than a fake voted list from RS..Ask Carlos. or — *Eric !
    Don't bother with a sellout magazine, like this once- interesting, has-been rag mag. That put the Boston Marathon Bomber- on their murder glorifying magazine COVER.
    Anyone want a copy of that- to show how sick they are too? No. That's their

    lowest – ever-SELLOUT. and its
    nothing Americans want to see or support. Its just too sick.
    And their top artists lists are not exactly voted on by readers..or actual people..not music professional execs.

  18. As a child of the 60s and 70s and having had the wonderful fortune of seeing most of the greats, TTB just makes me feel like there is still a great future in music. My grandson who is 12 called me earlier this year and said “Paw Paw, don’t you really like the Blues?” I said YES! He said I have to write a blues song for school and he sang me his first three verses. Not bad 😁👌. I thought to myself Oh Lord we have a chance 😂

  19. I saw the TTB last weekend at the Stiefel Theater and they are one of the few "new" musical acts that play with enough soul and energy that are worth seeing and TTB is one, Great 12 piece band.

  21. Derek plays with so much soul , he and Stevie Ray are my all time favourites, but it doesn't really matter. Lets enjoy the pleasure music gives us. This band is wonderful, Susan's voice is magic.
