So… four days late, but no dollars short. The trip to Freight And Salvage for New Years was awesome, but it’s great to be home for a bit! It was more that great to see old friends and to share our music the the folks out west!

    @Greg martelli You talking about that one when he plays Highway 61 Revisited with Derek Trucks?

    Two weeks before Woodstock AC Pop was the warm up for the big show. Many of the same bands performed.

    I worked a show shortly after that Crossroads with Derek and Susan at the Tampa Theater. They still had their separate bands and each played a set and then played together at the end. I got a chance to talk to Susan afterwards and she said that playing with Johnny was the most fun Derek had ever had on stage.

    In May of ’71 In Philly I was lucky enough to see Johnny headline the Spectrum. Allman Brothers Band with Duane also played that night.

    Cool. I saw Susan many moons ago in Houston opening for B. B. King, then she joined him on stage for a couple of songs. Very enjoyable evening. Had to be close to 20 years ago.

    Johny’s biography, “Raisin’ Cain” is a pretty good read. The house he grew up in in Beaumont still stands and is occupied. I ride by there once in a while in homage to his memory.

    Yea, fun book. Read it twice. Saw the man play every chance I got, two nights in a row once back in the 80″s. Miss him greatly.

    Talking about Texas blues guitarists – how about Stevie Ray Vaughan. Never saw Johnny Winters – but saw Edgar Winters several times.

    Never had the chance to see Stevie, but have seen his brother Jimmie Vaughan a few times. And I did see Johnny and Edgar Winter play together a short time b4 Johnny left us.
    (Speaking of brothers, I also never saw Jorma and Peter play together.)

    Back in the 70’s Peter opened for Hot Tuna.
    He was a very mellow gent. Had a long ponytail.

    I lived in Austin from ‘72-‘74. One night in early ‘73 I think me and a buddy wandered into a bar called the One Knight down on 6th Street and Red River. It was a pretty grungy biker bar, a picture of it appears in that SRV bio
    on AXS network you may have seen. Anyway, we walk in and this three piece band was playing. The guitarist was sitting down almost identically to the pose on his “In Step” album cover. Everyone in the house was blown away by what they saw and heard. It was this new kid named Stevie Ray Vaughn, just come down from Dallas. Of course, we didn’t have a clue what the future would bring, but I sure hadn’t ever seen anything like it up ‘til then, and won’t ever forget it. Saw him a few more times all the way up to the Astrodome opening for The Who. But that night at the One Knight was one of them times can’t be caught in a bottle.

    I practically lived at a great bar in NJ called The Stanhope House in late 70’s early 80’s. Passed on a night when some new guy from Texas named Stevie Ray Vaughn was playing. Kicking myself in the ass ever since.

    First time I saw SRV was at The Fabulous Forum, opening for…The Moody Blues.

    The doc that Carey mentioned was great.

    Saw Stevie at Monmouth College. Cornell Dupree was a pretty good Texas guitarist.
