Great video, was wondering, is Tommy related to them or just coincidentally have the same last name?

I believe it's just coincidence.

The first time I became aware of Tommy was seeing him accompanying the Whites on an Opry re-run on late-night TV in England. I remember first being floored by his invention and technique (I believe the song was 'If It Ain't Love...' - an up-tempo 2/4 thing), then a light bulb going on as a dormant part of my brain recalled that old Emmons Company LP I'd once seen but never heard.

In the intervening years Tommy White has reinforced that first impression I had that night - he continues to inspire and astound.

Thanks Roger, that's what I kinda figured, so funny how many similar names in bands, like the Byrds, Gene Parsons-Gram Parsons, and Burritos Michael Clarke- Gene Clark((Here Tonight).

Could be a new thread!
