Originaly born in Port Arthur Texas...literally down the street from Janis Joplin.
Now I live in Austin Texas...spent MANY nigts at Antones and other blues clubs in the 70-80s.
Learned alot too. as a guitar player......great radio station here that supports blues KUT-FM 90.5
Used to see the Jimmy vaughan and the Thunderbirds open for Muddy at Antones and a big list of Blues who's who at Antones.
I had a band with harmonica player Paul Orta in the late 70-80's....played Chicago blues.
Then joined with my wife's band ..Kathy and the Kilowatts...played for 20 years around here and am now taking a break.....but we are writing new blues songs too.
Thanks

Bill,
Everybody knows Kate! She's an Australian Blues treasure. She'll be at the Australian Blues festival in Goulburn (again - she goes most years) in mid Feb. I'll be there too (purely as an audience member).
