last set at Capone's Friday night
wuz BURNIN' DOWN DAH CRIB!
Sadly, I bet half of the drop dead gorgeous little girls dancing down in front of the stage went to high school with that little girl who got killed in Aruba.
They had "I JUST TURNED 21 & I'M FROM MOUNTAIN BROOK" written all over them.
When Benji sang HANG ON SLOOPY, I thought about Little Bobby playing keys with Rick Derringer & Phillip Tyler storming the stage and taking the microphone from Benji back when Chevy 6 played THE TOMB on the other end of this block of 4th Street back in the day.
Benji recognized me magnificently when he came on stage and after the gig we hung out together the whole time while he paid everybody off & the entire stage was broken down.
What a wonderful cat.
Benji gave me a super compliment.
The first thing he said to me was ,"Induced Temporary Intersubjective Vulnerability, Man, I read all that shit!"
So great to be with my good old friend, Ben Burford, Friday night.
Brenda Burford's frugal arthritic brother Benji has a blog that is pure dynamite. You will spend hours on this thing!

(ed. note to Burford~ How come that guy on the left looks like a clone of Jimmy Kennamer)
I spent the entire morning reading about his adventures with Bellinger, Robo & Pettus.

CHEVY 6 has an incredible juke box at http://www.chevy6.com/songlist.html
Great to hear from you!
Things are going great, but I'm too busy and arthritic for shit.
Your blog is cool! Keep sending the emails. Every now and then I get a break from juggling flaming balls and get to check stuff out.Chevy 6 still plays! 34 years! A couple of times a month, which is less than I need to, but more than I want to. Especially if it involves traveling. We always come back after the gig, and I feel like I've had a truck parked on top of me all night.Yours,--

Roberto, please ask all your prayer ninjas to say a few words about
Mr. Morgan Freeman, a great actor, great American, a great neighbor of Alison', and mine, and an even greater giving, caring for others man.
He was in a serious traffic accident and needs our prayers.
Thanks and keep up the great work that you do!
