It's always nice to see a world-renowned musician return to his roots, especially when he brings pizza for the entire KUTX staff in the process. It wasn't that long ago that Gary Clark Jr. was a blues wunderkind jamming with his elders at the Austin blues club Antone's, but these days, you're more likely to see Clark on late-night television or sharing the stage with Eric Clapton and The Rolling Stones.
