The guitar master, who is prepping for a series of dates on the East Coast in early April, has conspicuously declined to release a statement disavowing the Sonny Landreth fan who is a stealer. Equally curious is the lack of comment on the bad Sonny Landreth fan at, the website of Landreth’s fan club. Perhaps their webmaster has been busy. Robbing banks.
