Paul Butterfield would have been 64 on 17 Dec 2006.
Above is a pic of him jamming with Norton Buffalo and James Cotton.
His music lives on and you could do everybody a favor by
putting a record or CD of his on and turning it up.
I could be misreading what I've just watched on this YouTube clip
but I swear Jerry is setting up a harmonica and mic for Junior Wells. Could it be one of Jerry's harps or maybe a brand spanking new harp! (yeah right!)
The scene is right at the end (sorry, don't know how to make clips
Try watching at about 6.06 (time wise), you'll see Junior
reintroducing Muddy Waters, asking him to return to the stage BUT take
special note of Jerry in the background, I'm sure he flicks a harp
from his back pocket, sets it up on the mic and right at the end of
the clip hands it out for Junior to take. I don't know if I'm seeing
this right but my question is: If Junior took the harp and mic from
Jerry did Junior know where the harp had just come from?
In preparing for radio show tonight I'm listening to BB King and am
being reminded exactly why he's called "King of the Blues". He has a
guitar playing style that soars above many others.
I wonder what a legendary Blues guitar player turning 81
will do on his birthday (16 September)?
I read somewhere that BB King can't sing and play Lucille at the same
time? Listening to his album "80" has me convinced otherwise.
