When he played here in Champaign, IL USA several months ago for the 
Wall to Wall Guitar Festival, he was using a Digitech (or was it DOD?) 
8-second delay and a Tube Screamer, among a lot of other stuff I didn't 
see. He had the 8-second delay on a barstool and was hitting it 
constantly through the whole gig to make short recordings. Great show. 
In the middle of the set the battery ran down in his Tube Screamer 
and it started making hissing sounds. He handled it in a very 
cool way. "I have to stop for a moment because one of my batteries 
died, I'm sorry.." He changed it and then WITHOUT the Tube Screamer 
on, said "Can you hear the difference?"
