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.
