  1. OF COURSE I LISTENED TO THE MUSIC! — AND JUMPED OVER MY OWN
    BROOM OF EXCITEMENT! IT’S AMAZING HOW MANY OF US ARTISTS ROAM THIS EARTH WITH THE POWER TO DRIVE THE SPIRIT INTO A NEW
    DAY — GLAD THAT OUR PATHS HAVE CROSSED IN HARLEM. AND MAY
    OUR PATHS CROSS FOR MO’ YEARS DOWN THE ROAD
    ‘CAUSE MY SOUL IS ON A ROLL
    I MAY BE OLD AND RUSTY BUT I AIN’T COLD,
    AND HALF THE STORY OF TRUTH’S WITNESS STILL AIN’T BEEN TOLD.
    (Smile)
    BOOM!

  2. in the year 1984 I FOUND WHAT I was dreaming for I SAW A MAN NAMED ROBERT ROSS HE PUT MY LIFE ON ITS PRESENT COURSE.THANK YOU MR. ROSS

  3. Did you play with Muddy’s band on tour shortly after Muddy died and in particular the show at Stubb’s in Lubbock? I did sound for Jesse Taylor that night and also worked a Gregg Allman show at the New West a few months later and I was trying toI am still in the biz, have about 100 songs on my site as well as around 80 of my paintings. I have even more on my Facebook page as well as pictures of Jesse Taylor and Drew (his singer at that gig) as well as Stubbs. There’s one of Pinetop there, from when he passed away in Austin.

    1. I only sat in with Muddy’s Band several times but never worked with him or went on tour with him. I sat in a several times at the Bottom Line, Joyous Lake (Woodstock), My Father’s Place (Roslyn, LI), and Kenny’s Castaways (East 82nd St in NYC), maybe other places too.

    2. I never toured with Muddy, or his band. I only sat in with Muddy & his band 7 or 8 times including at The Bottom Line & Kenny’s Castaways in NYC, and a club called My Father’s Place in Long Island. Pinetop Perkins sat in with my band for a whole set once in Stanhope NJ, and I backed him up at The Lone Star Cafe in NYC at a benefit show organized by the great songwriter Doc Pomus.
