There are roots-rockers and then there’s Webb Wilder. The self-proclaimed “Last Of The Full Grown Men” is large enough for the big screen, hip enough to star in cult classic B movies, and tough enough to maintain a devoted worldwide fan base through a relentless never ending tour schedule. More Like Me, his first collection of new material since 2005, is classic Webb Wilder, an exciting blend of bedrock roadhouse rockers and bittersweet ballads incorporating the roots-rock influences and irreverent attitude and wit that informs Webb’s music.
As Gibson Guitar magazine put it, “For over 20 years, Wilder has mined rock ‘n’ roll’s most hallowed ground, but unlike so many others, he has approached it all with a rare irreverence and wit. His self-effacing persona – a tongue-in-cheek 1950’s noir character, equal parts high school principal, tent preacher, and private detective – gives Wilder’s music a sense of fun and imagination often lacking among his peers.”
