Jimmy Herring Joins Widespread Panic
“After the shocking mid-tour departure of guitarist George McConnell, Widespread Panic confirmed rumors that longtime friend Jimmy Herring will be joining the band as lead guitarist.” [JamBase]
I’m not that schooled on Widespread Panic nor Jimmy Herring so I can’t really find too much to say on this. It’s so crazy to me that a band can pull this off at all — let alone bringing in a true professional already established on his own — so this will be interesting to watch from the sidelines.
