Other Things...


JUST REMEMBERING THAT IT WAS TWENTY YEARS AGO AUGUST 27TH THAT WE LOST STEVIE RAY VAUGHN. IT SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY,  I'LL ALWAYS REMEMBER HIS FUNNY LAUGH AND SMILE...BRAWDY! 
HE WAS KIND TO ALL THAT MET HIM.  SO THIS WEEK AT YOUR LOCAL ' BLUES JAM ' PLAY ONE FOR STEVIE AND DO IT LIKE HE WOULD,
PLAY IT LOUD AND FLOOR IT! (THAT'S A TECHNICAL TERM)



WE LOST ANOTHER GREAT TEXAS BLUESMAN RECENTLY PHILIP WALKER. I HAD THE PLEASURE OF PERFORMING FESTIVALS WITH PHILIP AND HE WAS ALWAYS THE GENTLEMAN AND HE LOVED MY HAT!  HE COULD STOP A TRAIN, SLOW IT DOWN, OR SPEED IT UP USING DYNAMICS. YOU THINK IT IS EASY TRY IT SOMETIME BUT YOU HAVE TO BE STANDING IN FRONT OF THE TRAIN. CONDOLENCES TO FAMILY  AND ALL HIS FRIENDS.



ONE OF THE GREATEST DRUMMERS HAS PASSED AS WELL...RICHIE HAYWARD.
