Great stuff! We had the pleasure of seeing Slim at the Manchester Academy in front of a pathetically small audience. I know John and Lorraine would love to put him on at Liverpool Marina if the opportunity every arose. Fingers crossed.

Watermelon Slim is great, but the cover story in a recent “Blues Revue” hinted that he may be packing it up due to his arthritis. Those Academy venues are very student-orientated aren’t they . . . would be nice to see him in a dedicated blues venue, but as well as his ailments I would imagine he don’t come cheap!

I think it was John Adams down in Kent who used to act as his booking agent. I made a provisional booking for Worthenbury some years ago but he pulled out of the tour as he could make more money back in the USA.
Allegedly, he could be cantancerous…

Having said that,I think he’s superb – I’ve got 4 of his cds, all crackers.

A cantankerous old bluesguy. Surely not.
