One thing he mentioned is that Robert Plant recently sung his praises in The Washington Post.
I checked it out and he's right. Talking about living in Austin, Texas, Plant said:

Check out JB's new EP, Volume 10 . Meanwhile, here's some classic Junior at the Grand Old Opry:
UPDATE: 3:25 pm I should have mentioned, that drummer is Santa Fe's own Pete Amaral!
