We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I was fortunate to attend a private party at which New Orleans' Sonny Landreth played this weekend. A few guys wore their Rock and Bowl bowling shirts: you don't see those too often up here. Mr. Landreth performs at Rock and Bowl regularly.
I guess slide-guitarist Landreth can play anything, but he does like to rock the blues with a Louisiana twist. He's the kind of guy who is in the music, not the audience. Here's a Youtube, with the band he plays with now. He writes songs and sings too, but not on this piece in which he sings through his guitar. Turn your volume to max:
Oh yeah! He's an innovator, having developed that fret behind the slide technique you see him use here. He played at Rhythm and Roots in RI a few years ago, where I just missed his acoustic slide blues workshop; I did get to meet him, I asked this guy wandering around backstage if he had seen Billy Payne from Little Feat (I was there to interview him) and it was Sonny himself. Nice guy, humble and personable. He also has played with John Hiatt for many years. Since you're on YooTube, see if one of the Rams Head gigs shows up, where he sat in with the aforementioned Little Feat - classic take of Highway 95 shows him at his best, including comping (accompanying) behind the leaders. I think he also helped develop a computerized re-tuning mechanism that he used to use to switch open tunings between songs.
