CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

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!

Tickets for Bill's 81st Birthday Bash featuring Hot Tuna(electric) and David Bromberg Saturday January 7th, 2012


"For three decades Bill Graham ruled live Rock & Roll. It wasn't simply that he was on a first name basis with just about every important rock star, he was one of the few people in the music business who could hold his own with any of them and who, in his own right, was their equal. Graham didn't simply stage thousands of rock concerts, that was business as usual for his skilled organization. He really earned his reputation by putting together extraordinary benefits and rock events on almost a yearly basis.

For thirty years, Graham never stopped raising money for dozens of causes, ranging from AIDS research to the Haight Ashbury Free Medical Clinic, Amnesty International to the San Francisco Mime Troupe. Graham never seemed happier than when he was harnessing the tremendous power of rock & roll for the good of a cause. He truly seemed to delight in bringing together the biggest names in pop music to help make the world a better place, while at the same time making himself just a little bit more legendary."— Michael Goldberg, Rolling Stone, December,1991

Hard to believe that the first time I heard this song was played by Jorma but that's how middle class kids learn about the blues. That first Hot Tuna album is a killer. If you don't have it...get it... and if you don't have Rev Gary Davis...shame on you!!

I know you all know that Jorma is a terrific player and still tours as Hot Tuna and runs a great guitar camp called Fur Peace Ranch. They put on a great venue if you can make it!
