Wow, I never thought your "retirement" would make such big news. (LOL)

Pretty cool Walter! The only people who ever contacted me for a story were the police, and school administrators.

I hope you denied everything, Bubba!

I'll betcha when those guys start talkin' to Walter they'll have a helluva time tryin' to limit what they write about... especially if he lays his Mojo guitar history on 'em. They might think he's full of crap until they spend a little time with him. Let us know what happens Walter.

thanks guys! I will keep you updated. It will only be a couple minute thing. The music reporter in austin for NBC or CBS, can't remember, did a few of these segments on me back in the late 80's. It is interesting to see how they cram a day of following you around into 120 seconds. Also a young filmaker from Columbus contacted me and we are going to do some stuff with the video media. Walter

"Tonight on Geraldo, a man who refuses to play the same song twice. Musical rebel or just someone that won't admit that he can't remember the lyrics?. You decide." :lol:

Sounds like a great opprotunity Walter.

I got a chuckle out of that! Walter


Update- they are coming by my studio today at 3:30 and it is planned to air tomorrow. I pedal my bike home (7 miles ) and leave at 2:30. Today is a warm day and I will be sweating like a pig and will just have enough time to shower, dress and straighten up my studio a bit.

On another film note, a young columbus filmaker is going to do a documentary on me. I think we are going to use Nigel Price, an author from england that is writing a book on my life, as the interviewer. We will do it via the speaker phone. I also have been answering ads on craigslist for young bands that are looking for bands to share the bill on their gigs. I haven't heard anything back yet, but I am hopefull the young folks will give me a shot. The blues world never really has accepted me and I am thankful for the accpetance I have gotten, but it is time to explore new horizions. Things are getting exciting. I love this part of my erratic career. It is cold as ice for a spell and then the sun shines for a bit. It really makes you appreciate the sunshine!
