This psychedelic godhead amazed everyone with a seemingly impossible comeback a few years ago, playing not only festivals but also his first gigs in Gotham in 2007. There he was, standing steely-eyed on stage, playing the guitar like a demon again and singing loudly about demons once more. Only two years into his restarted career, he now seems like a force of nature, planning a new album with booster Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) which will be his first album of new material in a dozen years. Not a bad way to ring in the new year.
