Ewwww    

I love him. I actually have 2 of his albums. He's a great guitar player. He toured with Bob Dylan for a long time. It was a great experience for him. Unfortunately it was one of the things that caused his marriage to fall apart. I wish I'd been able to see him in concert but he never plays here. He still looks so hot. People never took him seriously when he started out because he was young and good looking. The older dudes were so jealous of his talent and good looks. Thanks TMZ for posting this.

Charlie Sexton is beautiful--extremely unique looking and absolutely gorgeous...those eyes, those lips, those hands and that sexy voice. You people with your "Edward Scissorhands" comments need to get your dates straight. Charlie Sexton's first shot to fame in 1985 at the age of 17...the movie Edward Scissorhands did not come out until 1990.

Ok, he was jsut a kid here..grew up playing all that SRV could do and much more. Bob Clearmountain wanted to sculpt him into the next Bowie and this is what you get. He went back to Austin, found his roots with Whipper Layton and Tommy Shannon, somehow melding with Doyle Bramhall II and being the focal in the Arc Angels, one of best groups to come out of Texas. Ever. After one album, he formed the Sexton Sextet and assembled a kickass album called Under the Wishing Tree. Awesome. He bounced around with Dylan for several years and produced a LOT of stuff with various artists, and still has time to do shows in Austin. This guy is a GREAT guitarist and has had a fabulous time with the best names in the business. Don't let the looks fool you. He has done his time.
