Scott Thurston is like musical glue.

Whether it's his acoustic guitar strumming on "Yer So Bad" or "Runnin' Down A Dream," his intertwining electric guitar on "I Should Have Known It" with Mike Campbell, or his high harmony vocals on songs like "I Won't Back Down" and "Here Comes My Girl," the Heartbreakers' multi-instrumentalist on stage left does it all, always tastefully providing whatever is needed to best serve the song.

Sunday night's show in Alpharetta was just another example of Scott's integral role in this band, beginning with his vocals on the band's cover of the Traveling Wilburys' "Handle with Care." Filling the shoes of the late great Roy Orbison is a monumental undertaking in and of itself, but Scott nails the Texas troubadour's part in the Wilburys' classic night in and night out, always eliciting a wide smile from Tom and the rest of the band. On "Takin' My Time," Scott's harmonica playing provides a crucial foil to Tom's slow growl and the dirge-like blues played by the rest of the band. On Bo Diddley's "I'm A Man," his harp takes center stage, sparing with Mike Campbell's lead riffs before the song explodes like a church tent revival.

Hey Tom, So psyched your going on tour! Say you several times at the O'Connell Center in G'ville in the 1980' time with Stevie Nicks. Always a great show. Looking forward to it once again.... janemarie3 Matthews, NC
