Looking for old friends again

Every now and again, I go looking for some old friends on Youtube.....

I love Joe Cocker, and someone did a great captioned video of him at Woodstock.....maybe this explains some things about "my generation."




I used to shop at Big Star, I used to listen to Big Star! That was 30 years ago....they're still around???



I'm still high from meeting one of my heroes earlier this year: Derek O'Brien. I got to see another of my idols the same night, Lou Ann Barton, but I'm still too scared to meet her. Maybe one day. Derek's the coolest though....







More recent video, with Lou Ann, Derek and Denny Freeman, who played with Bob Dylan recently....and at a custom car shop, no less.....too cool!



I really like the Black Keys....



But I love one of their inspirations even more....a guy I opened for once...RL Burnside....





I miss ya RL! Just like I miss Jr. Kimbrough....another of the Mississippi Hill Country greats I opened for once....

I noticed where AC/DC is releasing their first album in years. Am I the only one, who saw and misses Bon Scott as lead singer of this band???? I mean, the "new" guy's good....but he ain't no Bon...



Finally....I'm a blues guy....so why would I dig 80's band, "Vixen"???/ Well....#1, THEY ROCK, and #2...My buddy Chris plays with 'em!!!

I do miss Bon Scott, but I LOVE the new CD. Long overdue. And it cracks me up that me and my fifteen year old daughter like it equally.

Yeah, I always thought Bon was a little more witty than the new guy. It kinda pains me that AC/DC is in league with Wal-Mart as the exclusive outlet for their new record, but I guess in a way it's not so bad. AC/DC is from Australia, which makes them the only thing in Wal-Mart NOT made in China.

The new CD is awesome, rock on AC/DC. Had to comment on Vixen though, I loved them in the 80's...saw them twice. Are they still touring? I missed that one.

Yep! They're still at it. I saw them at Herrin Festa a few years ago and they sounded great. They have a great guitar/keyboard player named Chris Fayz who tours with them now. He married a college classmate of mine. Good guy and great player.
