Hard rocking guitar player who writes tremendous songs , produces wonderful records and has a grammy to boot. See him live any place you get the chance!
The Flying Burrito Brothers
The Bottle Rockets
This Festus, Missouri band are great rural rockers, buy them by the gross they have a loud report aimed to please a live audience.
Joe Ely has more raw energy than a bird dog on a short lead, with a covey of quail strutting by, his live performances are legenday, luckily many are available on disc.
His blood lines for writing come staight out of "Lonesome Dove", his keen edge for lyrics is razor sharp, James McMurtry can shave you with his songs while you ride on the gravel and grit of his oustanding rural rock guitar.
