    Beale Street Blues Scene

    I have had the good fortune to visit the lovely city of Memphis, Tennessee on two occasions and both times availed myself to the Blues clubs lining the sides of Beale St. It truly is a "Mecca" of sorts for any fan of Blues music. My first visit was in the early 90's when I was...

    Blues Piano

    Being a piano player and not a guitarist I absolutely love blues piano/ piano blues. Otis Spann, Dr John, James Booker and many others give me a great lift when I hear then play.

    I Miss Srv

    I miss Stevie Ray Vaughan, I think he was of the greatest blues guitar players. The blues world is just not the same without out him. It is so sad he left us so young in his life. He is greatly missed in my world.
