Interesting, Tom. I really like his "blues with leanings toward rock" guitar work, but I don't own anything by him because I can't get past his singing. To me, his vocals sound like he's imitating how he thinks a "blues singer" should sound.
Yes, when I used to watch Idol, Simon would call that a "Karoake Performance".
I really wish I could get past it, because I enjoy his guitar work very much.
