I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

It is a pretty great trip. Part of the reason why Painkillers works so well is that the players clearly have a reverence for the material they’re taking on, but not so much that they’re out to merely give rote readings of the songs. – Popmatters
A combination of reverence toward the progenitors of the blues and a spirit of pure enjoyment that is rare to find. – When You Motor Away
The reworkings of the songs reflect the distinct sounds of the artists covering them, giving each one a little something new. – Examiner
Painkillers suggests an overdriven, punk-infused variation on Canned Heat’s old formula, and if they’re never going to get to cut an album with John Lee Hooker, at least they have the good sense to see that their boogie isn’t endless, and for 35 minutes, this is a house party worth a visit. – All Music Guide
