I saw Howie Day on Carson Daily as well.  Personally, I'm a big fan.
Musically, I do a lot of similar things because I'm also a 
who incorporates looping.
    As for his gear.  He has one pedalboard for his guitar(DL-4, Boss DD-5,
Boss OC-2) and one pedalpoard for his voice(DD-5, DL-4, some other stuff
too).  He keeps his signal paths seperate.
    His album Austrailia is really good.  No looping on it as far as I can
tell.  However, next week, a new Howie Day EP will be released.  From what 
read, a companion DVD comes with it.  The DVD is supposed to be a live
performance(probably with a lot of looping) Anyway, I'll certainly check it
out and send a review to this list.
