I think you should listen to this before you read what I have to say about it:
I generally don't trust blues rock -- guitar virtuosos tend to be self-involved, the point that their solos become masturbatory in their technical proficiency without serving the feeling of the song itself. So Simo, as a band and JD Simo as their lead guitarist, stand out from a very crowded field. "I'll Always Be Around" is bursting with soul, feeling, and, of course, moxie. Exactly what the blues is supposed to be.
