Most of the spawn that come from the loins of music legends get at least some of their parent's talent. (Then there is Hank III.) In the case of Lukas Nelson, whose father is that one guy who smokes a lot of pot and wrote "Hello Walls," you can see the resemblance immediately. And you can even hear some of his pop's DNA coursing through his fingers when he plays the guitar. But this kid sounds equally influenced by Hendrix and Texas bluesman Freddie King. While the Son of Willie still has some piss and vinegar in him, he remains true to his father's name and the players he came up with. I think there's a bright future ahead of this kid. MARK LORE
