Jeremy McComb – Pure Genuine Talent, a Real Musician

A few years ago I was the regular opening act for Larry The Cable Guy. A couple months into Larry mania a young guy from the state of Washington joined us for a weekend on the tour bus… He didn’t leave for about 4 years. Jeremy McComb became Larry’s tour manager and more importantly my friend. Jerome (as I know him) is a pure genuine talent, a real musician. I often will like an artist, go see them live, and then realize it was all studio magic that made there sound. With Jeremy (as you’ll realize below) this is very far from the case. This man and his guitar make magic! We had countless nights out on the open road together sharing a tour bus laughing, dreaming and living a dream at the same time. True artists cannot stay in the same place. Complacency kills whatever art you bring to the table. We each moved on to pursue those dreams we passionately plotted till the sun came up after Jim Beam soaked nights. Memories are a great thing to have. I have countless memories watching Jeremy break out his guitar at sound checks before a show. I would sit in a seat… in an empty arena… hours before rapid Cable Guy fans would fill it to the rafters. Getting myself a private “Jeremy McComb concert” knowing one-day people would be paying good money to sit where I was sitting. Jeremy would watch my stand-up sets each night from the side of the stage or theatre wings always supportive, truthful and encouraging. I got to enjoy so many amazing evenings with my friend and his guitar. You really should to! His talent is out there right now; enjoy discovering it as much as I did. We shall continue the ride my good friend Jerome “blood brothers till the end”.
