    Thank you for that link.

    I grew up in tiny Scott, Miss., with my bare feet firmly planted in Delta mud. A colorful childhood, marked with a fair amount of tragedy and dysfunction. 40 years removed, my heart never left. Scott is 14 miles north of Greenville on HWY #1.

    I would be interested to hear a recounting of the stories about the experiences you are about to undertake after you come back home.

    Sincerely,

    Michael

    Sounds like a fun adventure!

    Might want to check to make sure those folks are still around, T Model is passed and so is King Lloyd.

    King used to live in Centreville, MS, just off of Hwy 33, and that photo was taken at a place he owned where he used to throw parties for the locals.

    Hell of a player, hell of a voice, and he rocked a mean band. He played in New Orleans every other weekend and took gigs up on the delta whenever he could, we played some fine little roadhouses with him all up and down Hwy 49.

    He redefined blues to me -- in a typcial he'd morph from "I'm Mr. Jody" to "Atomic Dog" to "Sex Machine and then drop into a hardcore blues.

    Cool band, I miss King every day . . .

    I actually like the pic with the dude carrying a purple maple quilt Music man. Looks sweet on him. But you don't want anything of value with you in a juke joint.

    You think the real blues men and women are mostly gone now? There aren't any people playing that music legitimately? People who were raised there, who grew up listening to that music and play it?
    What is your criteria for a real blues player? Someone in their 70's, 80's, 90's, dead?
    Have fun while you're there, but......

    If you get a chance to catch Robert Belfour or Terry Bean anywhere- they are old school real-deal. Terry is maybe in his 40s but does it the way they have there for generations.

    Now, that's the blues!
    They're not worrying about what caps are in their amps.

    I hope you get to go. I'd love to hear more!

    Yeah. I love the gear in those pics!

    Had a great time in Clarksdale. We stayed at the Shack Up Inn. Check it out. Also, make sure you go to Dockery's Farm (sp?).
