T Bone is the producer of choice in the Bluegrass/Americana world. He just
did the Robert Plant/Alison Krause CD.
He does have a Who connection. He opened for The Who several times in 1982
including the show I saw. I thought he was awful. It was 20+ years later
that I found out that Mick Ronson was in his band at the time. Ronson was
making chump change touring with Burnett after turning down two grand a
night to tour with Bob Seger.
