Rumor Mill - Keller Williams Band??

Is Keller Williams ready to lose the loops and actually let other people play instruments on-stage with him on a full-time basis? Well Keller hinted to the fact that he will be hitting the festival circuit this summer and for a possible fall tour with a full band during his appearance on Sirius's Jam-On. He didn't give away any names yet, but he alluded that the people he's been talking to will be familiar to his fans.

The current hot rumor had been that he would be taking over for Bill Nershi - but according to the lasted issue of Relix that arrived in my mailbox today he's quoted saying the following....

"I can't really let myself think like that, especially being in touch with the band and knowing they're not really thinking that. There might be a tour over the next couple of years where we might go and try something out but there's definitely no plans for me taking Billy's slot, that's for sure."

In the meantime Keller is currently on the road - head here for the dates. He also has a new album coming out on Feburary 9th called Dreams that features the likes of Bela Fleck, Bob Weir, SCI, Steve Kimock and more.
