I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

  15. I will never forget the time riding home in a taxi many many years ago and the taxi driver ran a stop sign and red light and i mean he was putting the pedal to the medal and i will never forget tapping him on the shoulder saying "don't let j blackfoot get you in any trouble" and he had to pull on side of the road for laughing so hard. But those was the good ole days. RIP Mr Blackfoot you will be miss
