    I have the utmost respect for all of the musicians, listed above.
    But, I LOVE my Larry!
    Wherever he plays/whatever he plays/whichever string-instrument he plays:
    It’s always a treat to see him onstage.

    So, if I may:
    Remember Larry’s mother, Maggie Campbell.
    She was the greatest mom, friend and music fan (especially of the live-show/concert event category(.
    If any of you ever had the pleasure to meet her, you already consider yourselves to be lucky to have experienced her loving vibes.
    Ah, what a great lady!
    Four years gone (as of one week ago). The years go by, so quickly.
    The love that Maggie gave and received in return — is eternal.

    My buddy Mike hit Wanee with his 80 year old father and 3 sons (age 8, 10, and 12)for the entire weekend. Said they had a blast and really enjoyed Hot Tuna set with a special kudos for “Hesitation Blues.” Rock on!

    I wonder if the name of the Wanee Festival has anything to do with the Suwanee River fame like ‘Way Down upon the Suwanee River’. I think she runs in Florida.

    In the panhandle. ‘Way down upon the Swannee River…’

    Blind Boys of Alabama are truely amazing gentlemen. They left Wanee and came down to St. Pete for the Tampa Bay Blues Festival on that following Sat. I worked security in the artist area and had the honor to escort 2 of them to their trailer. Jorma, it was the same beautiful park where you, Jack and Barry played in Jan. A bit warmer this weekend though.

    This past Thurs. I was most unfortunately struck by what is known as a “seizure”.
    I passed out on the street in convulsions after some dizziness. Perhaps the worst experience of my life.
    I was treated for 2 days at the hospital, and I’m happy to say there appears to be no significant illness involved. While preparing for an MRI for my brain, I was asked what music I like. The nice technicians pumped Hot Tuna Pandora through my headphones. While in the machine, I was treated to “Water Song”, a live version of “Vampire Woman”, and “Sleep Song”, making my experience quite delightful. I hope I don’t have to go through that again, but music heals.

    Hey Joey

    I just had an MRI myself… I was listening to classic country… Charlie Rich, Merle Haggard, Dolly Parton, Jesse Coulter. Music makes it better. Hope your procedure brings you results as good as mine.

    Hey Jorma: I hope that you’re O.K.
    Same to you, Joey.

    My MRI-music was Beatles’ ballads. Mellow and relaxing.@Jorma

    Hello, Jorma! Thank you for the music! I love The Jefferson Airplane and Starship! I’ve dreamed of you several times. Check out my blog if you want. See you in Dreamtime!

    It was indeed a thrill to get to sing to Mr. Casady on his B-day, but to hear all of you thumping down on “Tap that Thing” was absolutely amazing. Thanks for a great time (again). m
