Boomer Blues:


You know, I’m free, free now, baby
I’m free from your spell
Oh, free, free, free now, baby
I’m free from your spell
And now that it’s all over
All that I can do is wish you well

Exeunt Omnes Stage Right.

    Pursued by a Genderqueer Bear looking suspiciously like Andrew Sullivan.

    Ah, BB King, he left us before we were ready. Obviously, the others are great guitarists, but BB was the master. In the intro, the sweet melody that he plays against those bluesy chord changes is so poignant, and so typical of his style.

    In 1976 I was working for a gent who ran a recording studio and did live sound. He got the gig for the sound system for a BB King concert, and a couple of us went along as roadies, more or less. He didn’t have a separate board for the stage mix, so he was mixing for the monitors at the main desk position. Mr. King’s plane was late and they arrived for the show about 30 minutes after start time, so no sound check. We did everything on the fly and the stage mix was problematic. I kept running between the stage and main desk offering updates. One time, Mr. King put his arm around my shoulders and said: “Son, I can’t hear Lucille. Can you do something about that?” I said “Yes, sir” and ran back to the main desk and Sammy turned up Lucille in the monitors. My next trip to the stage he gave me a great big smile. That is one of the musical high lights of my life.

    Fantastic performance. Thank you Gerard.

    At 4:53, is that guy in the background frame next to the beautiful girl, Phil Spector? Just curious.

    Spector? Looks more like Ron Woods to me.
