As I sit here in my cubicle, surrounded by particle board cabinetry and dishwater brown upholstery, with the ventilation fan rattling overhead, under the greenish glow of the fluorescent lights, glasses sliding down my nose, I look at these concert photos and for a moment I'm transported.
I'm no longer a desk jockey, I'm a Guitar Hero.
I've got the stupefying power and charisma of Buddy Guy, the intensity of Jonny Lang, a cool zebra jacket like Eric Johnson and "good hair" like Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
Not only are all these guys awesome musicians...but they "look cool" in a way that has fascinated me since high school and never been anything I could replicate.
We've posted more pics from the October '08 'Experience Hendrix" tour on Flickr. They just might be the mental escape you're looking for on a Monday afternoon.
