Yeah, that's incredible. I've heard the song but to see her perform it is, well it stops you cold. Makes you cry, makes you pissed as hell.

Yep, Hendrix is right up there TonyF. Hendrix playing the Star Spangled Banner at Woodstock to a very small, very hungover audience of us. Cowabonga Kimosabee!!

Today is bluesman Magic Slim's 71st birthday.

Here's a tip of the hat to old when I met him J.C. Johnson ("Empty Bed Blues). I was invited to his house thanks, to a mutual choreographer friend, for sherry. Sherry! Wet behind the ears me was pumped. And honored. Wound up in a jam with JC, Butterball and the rest of the Ink Spots who had just popped in unannounced, on guitar, base, a baby Steinway Grand and a honky tonkish upright piano what had been drinking for a very long time and some spoons and a washboard. Yowza, a good time from some heady ol guys and a kid (me). Divine time....went on and on with everyone playin' off of each other...a vertiable waterfall of riffs....

GodBlessDaBlues!
