Haven't read E.C.s book but will put it on my list. I still love him too. Fav Sean Costello song is Don't Pass Me By which he wrote. And now Susan Tedeschi married to Derek Trucks another great young one. Would love to see them do a show together but will settle for youtube.

Today is a Johnny Winter day, the album Johnny Winter from 1969.  The guitar solo on Be Careful With A Fool is one of my all time favorites. And a vocal lick on Drown In My Own Tears still makes me shiver. I feel about him as you do about BonJovi.

Quick Trivia again. Johnny Winter was in Tulsa at the famous Cain's Ballroom (Wikipedia) in the late 90's-again. Although sick, I was going again anyway despite having to stand outside in line in the cold, rainy weather. Knowing I was sick, my sis who was living in MS at the time but still had connections with Cain's management called them and made arrangements for me to be let in early through the bus. office door. We quickly went to the front to secure seats, as seating was "get one if you can",  and Johnny's roadie came out and started talking to us as we were the only ones in there. When the doors finally opened a girl came rushing up and asked the roadie if Johnny was going to sing a certain song. He told her he didn't know, she would need to ask Johnny's road manager, and with a grin pointed at me, then walked away. She started asking me all kinds of personal Johnny questions before she realized she'd been "had".

The roadie came out and sat with us for awhile during the show and had a laugh over the situation he had left me in.

A book has finally been written about Johnny entitled Raisin Cain in which he is supposed to be very candid about his life. I've ordered it, and it should be here Tues. Bet it's "colorful". Can't wait.

Thanks Glendaann.  Loved the picture of the youth before and after rock.  Too funny.  Eric got in a lot of trouble back in the day.  I read his book and it was pretty disgusting some of the things he did.  Still love his music though and glad he's cleaned up his act.

I checked out Sean Costello.  Saw a youtube video of him doing "You Wear It Well."  Very good.  I have the Susan Tedeschi CD "Just Won't Burn" which includes him and his band.  Another artist that left way too soon.

Hey, good for you. It's too bad he couldn't get Leon Russell on it too.

Bit of trivia..back in the day when Clapton was hanging in Tulsa, our police dept. arrested him and threw him in jail. Wonder how much he loves Tulsa now? However he was here at the BOK center earlier this year.

Oh hey,  I remember she introduced the first song from that CD on The Apprentice  TV show. 

Must admit I have not listened to it since.  I will have to give it a listen.  Thanks J

I was but by the end of the song I was getting tired.  Of course, it was near the end of the night too.

Now listening to my new CD by Cyndi Lauper called:

MEMPHIS BLUES

It's great.  She's joined by Allen Touissant, BB King, Jonny Lang and others.  Love it!
