Not only a great player but also a great human being. If you get the chance to see him live its a worthwhile experience. He also does a meet and greet at the beginning of most shows free of charge. Can't say that about too many of todays artists of his caliber. We see him in a 3-400 seat theater in New Jersey.

His picking hand technique is something to watch. Equivalent to Hedges though they both come at it differently. Being in complete command and super strong, able to do anything.

Though he is brilliant and one of a kind.....I am not interested in his playing or singing.  I'm probably the only person on the planet to admit this.

What is it that doesn't appeal to you? I saw him live and I was just amazed. Sure do agree with you on the singing part

The record he did with Frank Vignola "Just Between Frets" is brilliant I recommend to anyone who likes acoustic music.

Saw him up close and personal at Guitar Town 2009 in Copper Mountain, CO, USA.  Free weekend long show of guitar heros.  This year's lineup: http://villageatcopper.com/guitarTown/

Anyways, what a show!  Played like it was the first time he loved playing the guitar - such joy and command of his axe.  Huge smile on his face, non-stop for over an hour; perfect segues, etc.

One of my favorite recordings. Full of the old standards, lovingly & deftly rendered.

There's one in every crowd. You know, the kind that would say, "Superman ain't that strong!"

I got into T.E. about ten years ago or so.  Was blown away the first couple times I saw him, and I've met him and found him a wonderful person as has been mentioned.  I have to say though, he seemed to have pretty much the same show each time I saw him after that and I eventually quit going when he comes through town.  To be sure it's a masterful act, and the first time you see it it's like being hit by a train, but I always wondered why he didn't change it up a bit: surely he can play about anything under the sun.  And who knows, maybe by now he has changed his act up some.

I've seen him several times over the past 10 years. The last time was in New Orleans at HOB in 2010. It's a very small venue and it wasn't a full house. Maybe 200-250 in the crowd.
Some kid, probably 17 or 18 in the audience with a guitar asked him if he could come up on stage and play with him.
For a performer to relinquish control of the show in any way is a very risky business; especially a soloist. TE tells him to climb up on the stage. He asks him what he wants to play. I can't recall which of his tunes it was any more.
The kid had some chops and Tommy played along, mostly rhythm. The crowd loved it. Tommy was gracious. The kid was proud as a peacock.
Now, to continue with your train analogy, it could have been a train wreck, but TE is enough of a professional to take the chance and it had a happy ending.
I give him props for that alone.
