Happy Birthdays

Posted on: Thursday, Nov 16, 2006

Today’s Blues birthdays are…

CLARK, W. C.                    (g/songw) b. 1939-1116, AUSTIN, TX
PHILLIPS, BREWER     (g/HOUND DOG TAYLOR) b. 1924-1116, COITA, MS
SUMLIN, HUBERT           (g/HOWLIN’ WOLF) b. 1931-1116, GREENWOOD, MS

JUst like yesterday you’ll have to did out your own YouTube clips.  In fact here’s a better idea — any clips that you rustle up please post them as comments.

I’m heading home tomorrow night and will be home Sat morning UK time.  I haven’t done much bluesing.  I brought my harps and mike but have not driven out to any of the jams.  Last night I had a choice –

1.  A drive to a blues jam by myself.

2.  Being driven to a top Italian restaurant run by a bloke that looks like he’s from The Soprano’s with guests that look like they are from the Sopranos.  Including a few excellent Martinis.  Check out this review and this review to see the place.

Tonight is the last night and it’s another Italian.  Incontro.

Here’s a clip featuring Hubert Sumlin with his old boss – the one and only Howlin’ Wolf – this features in the excellent Wolf DVD. He looks about to swallow his harp – check out the very drunk Son House looking on!
