When I think of BO I always think of the intro into Whipping Post. R.I.P.

Like I've said before and will continue to say, the Allman Brothers was Duane's band but Berry made it go.



Hootchie Cootchie Man is on the bill for today.

I will always remember his legs pumping along to the beat when he hit the note. His eyes closed during his solo in Mountain Jam, taking the lead.

RIP Berry. It was the first time I used a credit card - sending flowers to the funeral home. It was my mother's of course, and I still have the receipt. It was a very, very sad day.

I used to patch my jeans like that ala BO.

Re the headstone picture....ooooh, somebody did a rubbing. Not going there, though. This is a day to remember his passing on to his reward for a short, but well lived and adventurous life.

Somebody mentioned a fly swatter story to me today but I won't go into that either.

What I love about this is the look of pure joy on Berry's face while playing. Easy to understand, given who he's playing with!
