Tommy Crook is one of the best living guitar players, period, in my humble opinion. Chet Atkins once called Mr. Crook the best guitar player he knew, on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, no less. Better yet, anyone can go check out Tommy Crook every Friday night for the price of a nice Thai meal in Tulsa, Oklahoma, at Lanna Thai restaurant from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. (as of March 2007). A lot of us play around on guitar, and more yet can really play the guitar, but few are in the league of this guy. Another guitarist I would put right up there with Tommy Crook is Gary Lucas, who is also featured on this channel.
