I'm Feeling Low and the Fish Won't Bite

Just as the song suggests, a loud dose of vintage R&B almost always sets me straight when I'm blue.  When I'm ailing, however, even the sweetest music rankles me.  I'm back in the swing of attending performances, but I only lasted twenty minutes at a gig last night.  The flu is the enemy of music.

I remember the late Kansas City drummer Tommy Ruskin at Plastic Sax.

Little Jimmy Dickens has died.  I'm so glad I was able to see him a handful of times at the Grand Ole Opry.

Guitarist Jeff Golub has died.

Alberta Adams has died.

D/Will created a video for "Keep Coming Back".

I agree with the pontificators who suggest that the entirely decent "Only One," the new collaboration between Kanye West and Paul McCartney, is the worst thing West has released.

You need a little bit o' soul to put you right.

Indeed, Steve. I'm finally back in the saddle. Hope to see you soon.
