Yeah - Niel is a force of nature and one of the best songwriters ever.
I've been into him for the longest time but was utterly dumbstruck when I heard him live for the first time - about 6 or 7 years ago I think.
These elderly gentlemen and women came on stage, and it was like they opened up a portal to another dimension - they just channeled completely pure and raw rock and roll. One of the best concerts I've ever witnessed
I completely agree about the compatibility with a tele. I finally understood the beauty of a tele bridge pu when I matched it with the Deluxe which rolls off all the icepick nastiness. The bridge pu also puts out enough sound from the low couple of strings when driven to offset the fact that there's HUGE low end rolloff when the Deluxe is driven hard which makes the bottom disappear when using the neck pu.
