I wasn't able to drive to His Memorial due to heart problems today, so I uploaded a blues tune dedicated to Bugs Henderson. If you played in Dallas and were asked to play with Bugs you knew you had arrived. The first time I played with him, I was playing at another club when the owner said I had a call. They wanted to know if I would come play harmonica with Bugs opening up for John Mayall, and it was 20 minutes till they went on. I dragged raced there and it was an incredible experience I'll always remember. Wish I still had the breath to play harp.
He was the nicest person I ever met!

He was a soulful player. I can hear the attitude in his tone! Of course, with a B3 behind you, one cannot help but bring the attitude!

Sounds like he used his fingers instead of a pick. Very nice. Wish I could have met him.

Tommy,

Great tribute to a great musician! Bugs will be missed. I always enjoy your playing, Cuz! Hope you are feeling better. And like you said, I wish you still had the wind to play the harp!

Keep up the good work!

Steve

Thanks Everybody for listening! Bugs was a Guitar Genius, I was amazed he would ever ask me to play on the same stage! JBlatz are you JMac? Just a wild guess! I love KNON, can't find Blues like they play anywhere else even for money!
