I've recently been getting into this guy and he seems to take a lot of influence from saxophones in his playing. Anyone else see this?

I love Setzer. I'm not sure what you mean by influence form saxaphones in his playing. Other than than having horn players as part of his band.

I really like to play along with songs that have prominent horn parts. It's a blast if you can get your guitar to imitate the horn...



One of my favorites for said activity.
p.s. The video is just some pictures of Paris, but it's a good audio quality version of the song, so I used it.

Setzer is a classic.

Check out him playing Duke Ellington's Caravan with his big band.

Aye, king of the rockers... If you are even a bit to Rockabilly and Rock 'n Roll... Brian is the man.

Doh, lets honor him with the video :P

Also, if you like Setzer, you might also like The Reverend Horton Heat. They play similar music (Swing and Rockabilly with lots or reverb) but with a smaller band and a slightly heavier, more punk/surf-rock take. Hell, they even have outfits and instruments with flames on them just like Setzer and his band.

Here are videos of my favorite song's of theirs: Big Red Rocket of Love and Galaxy 500, respectively.

wow, I almost forgot about that cat. I used to listen to him all the time. Thanks for the flashback.

It really seems like there is a rockabilly revival. Even a lot of punk has some rockabilly tendencies anymore.

Yeah, The Living End is one quite interesting group of mixing Punk and rockabilly/rock'n'roll



Cheers
