brian shive : Super fine Jimi feel and touch. Great to see Jimi's spirit come to life. Thanks!!

Jay Hoe : Yeah, he looks like a kingfish

Hank Anderson : I hope king fish loses weight cause we want him to live as long as possible.

StratmanDarrell : I just watched this guy on Netflix's show "Luke Cage" Season 2. Episode 5 I think. My thought, who is this guy, he's got soul in his heart and fire in his hands. I hope he takes care of his health, so many great guitarists pass before their time.

k3nn3thinatl : This young man is the truth. It does my heart good to see young black men who are real musicians and who embrace history and the true culture. We are not the urban ghetto. Hip hop is not the story of our people.

RimshotKiller : So, I met a lot of people claiming that they could never play the guitar because they had big fingers...

Jim Scott : When you book a talent like this at your venue.. YOU TURN THE TV OFF

Neil Ballas : Where's the love for the bassist? He kills it as much as Kingfish!

Kevin20ftw : Man i have played guitar for 30yrs now and that is absolutely the best cover of hey joe i have ever heard, thank you for posting this amazing video!! The whole world needs to take a look at this guy to see how music is supposed to be!

Darius Owens : Guess everybody just getting here from Luke cage.

Tony Lee Glenn : That solo is just jaw dropping good. This guy is legit. I do like his voice too. New blues legend in the making here folks.

Tim Boersma : Now let's hope he doesn't die within 10 years...

John Ashley : saw this kid on Luke Cage. Had to track down some of his live show skills. man this guy is the real deal.

Chelcie Rice : Luke Cage brought me here also

murat kamiloğlu : mark my words in 3 years this guy will restore blues to its golden age. real music is back baby

Charles Mullins : Drum man is dead on it. Bass is so tight in the pocket it chirps. Guitar man is just a genius ..

Johannes : In awe at the size of this lad. Absolute unit.

kk P : came here after watching Luke Cage.

Blake B : Great player, I hope he watches his weight. I'd hate for an artist as good as him to go away too soon because of health issues

Paul Goblet : This kid is brilliant. Turn that stupid tv off!

natalie claro : Never judge a person, dude has a good voice and gnarly skills. These comments, i swear some people have vomit for brains

Devin V : Kingfish you are the king.. on Instagram he is a very sweet guy. When some comment about his weight he doesn’t answer with a comeback. He says “we all have things we are working on. Let’s fix them before we tell others about their problems.” Killer player, all soul. Come to Atlanta one day brother.

Badgeresquire : That child has the voice of a man. His singing is as good as his guitar, and that's saying a ton. But would someone at the bar please do the band a simple courtesy of TURNING OFF THE F#*KING TV?!?

J M : God given talent right there.... No sloppiness in that band. All top level musicians. Hendrix would be smiling no doubt. I would be happy to pay good money to hear you guys rock the house all night long. I think B.B. had a child and didn't tell us.... I just listened to this performance for the first time, and I can promise you it won't be my last! 👍👍

Paul Leone : LMAO the black guy on keyboard behind Kingfish in the beggining of the song was like "wtf is this shit" and then Kingfish smoothly transitioned to hey joe into riff and hes like "ok ok ok big boy got style"

Tyler Pittman : Saw this video when first came out, then watched Luke cage today and saw this guy again had to come rewatch. Badass.

anish timanna : shoutout to the Bass player!

Young King Beter : You can never say your fingers are too big again

Brandon Givens : Anybody else obsessed with this?

Patrick Murray : The Blue Canoe needs to show more respect towards its artists and turn off that f'king tv distraction behind the band. What's the matter with them that they'd bring in these talented musicians and then leave the television on?

lazaglider : This young man is ridiculously, incomprehensibly good.

Walt Campbell : The fact that this man is 17 years old and can play with that much feel and accuracy gives me much hope for the future of music.

budsyremo : Jimi Hendrix reincarnated and on McDonalds.

fiddlestick89 : probably the best guitar player you've never heard of

Dzod509 : so we're just gonna sit here and ignore the monster on the drums?

runtyrobot : Turn the damn tv off!

DrVanNostrand : “On beat, cmon” *white crowd immediately claps off beat*

ayy lmao : what a bass player

David Robinson : You know Jimi had the biggest smile on his face when he heard this!

Steven W. : Saw this dude on Luke Cage and was blown away. Had to look him up and glad I did!

Luke Ottinger : I think that Guitar might need a cig after that!

irulan : 3:15 The expression on the keyboardist face when he does the purple haze riff 😂

Justin Holmes : Remember the Hendrix tribute night where Slash played Hey Joe ? This guy was better :)

Dave Gods : Oh man, please go on diet.. talent like you need to stay for hundred years!

EliteYeet : man just every once and a while this video calls out to me and i have to watch because its just so awesome

DTM 1864 : He's beyond his years. So talented.

jared reynolds : How do you know you can slay on guitar? When you barely look at what your hands are doing and you lay down some Hendrix. This guy is the real deal.

Walid Aladssani : Let just give the brother some love. Hes "a bad mf"

Seadog95 : The whole band is fresh af

A G : There’s so much detail his playing that I couldn’t possibly hear everything that makes him clever without transcribing note-for-note. But one thing that sticks out clear as day is the genius of his entrance at 2:28. Like EVERY guitarist does the dramatic, high on the neck, long bendy note entrance right on 1. Or at least after the rhythm changes to what it will play to support the solo. But he comes in just a half beat earlier and it is so goddamn cool.
