It was magic.
They were the first to come out of my mouth as I walked out of Bathurst RSL last Friday night, having experienced Diesel up close.
He mixed some of his old skool classics like Soul Revival and Cryin’ Shame, with some amazing blues music in a 90 minute performance that was a quintessential night of amazing guitar blues.
In truth, I have always been a huge fan of Johnny Diesel, Mark Lizotte, Diesel (call him what you will) but he was completely mesmerising during the show.
Diesel was touring his new Americana album and he honoured the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Bonny Rait with perfection.
It was a five star, 10/10 show, and just fantastic to get musicians of this calibre to town.
