Those delta towns hold such a unique character, it's very hard to leave them. But then again, I've always loved the South. Clarksdale embodies all of it. What a great town...

WayneS, there were incredibly interesting discoveries at every single turn. No joke. We stayed above Ground Zero Blues Club and met a whole mess of great people, including the guy that owns the club with Morgan Freeman as well as extremely talented musicians Bill Abel and B.B. King's former drummer of 30 years, Caleb Emphry, who was probably the best drummer I'd seen in a long long time. We got to hang out and eat real, amazing southern bar-b-q at a little gathering at the Do Drop Inn with Po' Monkey himself, (owner of Po' Monkey's, "the last juke joint in the world"). Then he and a friend took us back to hang out at his place, which was an absolutely unique blast. When we got to Indianola I had a very long chat with the former longtime owner of Club Ebony, (b.b. king recently bought it,) who was friends with B.B. and organized the whole King "homecoming to Indianola" thing. She was incredibly interesting.

My persona favorite, though was meeting Guitar Slim, jr. in New Orleans. (Yup, he's bluesman Guitar Slim's son). He was an amazingly talented (grammy nominated) musician and showman and would play his heart out if it was just us in the small place we originally caught him or if he was at the packed Bourbon Street Blues Club. In addition to that, he quickly became an incredibly endearing and amazing friend with one of the biggest, nicest, best personalities I've had the pleasure of encountering. I plan on visiting twice in the next couple of months.

I was so taken by the whole ordeal, the people, the hospitality, the music and the scenery that I've decided to move down sometime late next year.

I operate the Blues-centered website http://www.bluescentric.com in all of my spare time (We're still uploading the last of the content. We've been at it for months but only relatively recently launched). It's filled with Blues information, a timeline, history, labels, artists, merchandise etc. And we've got a lot of plans for it. It keeps me busy when I'm not working. :)

I'm a friendly as hell, good time Missouri Man. I Play Blues guitar (and only Blues guitar), almost always electric. And I just got back from a two week Blues pilgrimage through the Mississippi Delta a couple of weeks ago!! I can't think of anything else about me for now except that I can't wait for the official Football season to start :P
