When I first heard of David Jacobs-Strain...Like others in the music biz,I said "How could a kid so young(22yrs) play the blues as good as this ..?.." Then I thought about it for a while and it went off like a lite bulb inside my head..,When I was 17..Eric Clapton was 21 and, he had already been through the Yardbirds..,John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers.., and Cream...,and I thought he was incredibly old Thats the kind of eyes you have to look at David with... For anyone thats seen him ,it's a show they will never forget...,and for those that haven't ...,you had better see him while you can still talk to him... For his star is on the rise.
