I put down my serious clawhammer at age 24 when I married, but stepped right back into it 25 years later when I divorced. It's been 11 years now with a supportive new husband to encourage me. I tell you this to encourage you. Take a listen to my post today between yours on the Media Archive--MacPherson's Rant. See if there's hope for us oldies!

Perry's influence on you is quite evident in this esp on the right hand strokes and some of the chord changes too. I'm sorry time and age have taken away my memory of how you played back then bro, awesome stuff...will listen to the rest soon. Once again a reminder of the amazing fun and players we hooked up w/ over the yrs in our travels to various shows!! those jam sessions in Eureka Springs w/ Ep Roller and Al Vunovich and Pauly from lax, Charlie K, and J huntsberger...and Steven B and Gil his tuba player....we were truly blessed to connect w/ some of the best and ATL and orlando and all the figa shows were amazing too. I'm happy you've got the fever again and best of luck with the new group. A little fun playing jo with a group is great therapy and if u can get paid, fed or watered, Life is good!!!!

Thanks brother.....next time I'm sitting out back on your deck with you watch out....lol
As we keep reminding ourselves...how blessed we were to have known and played with so many of the greatest of them....left over from an age that our kids can only read about in history... I am still so much in awe of this fact and honored to have sat in the ranks of any of these legends !

Your welcome old buddy! just realized I said Stephen B and not Di, but I'm sure you knew who I meant. Also realized how many other greats I left out of my last post like....Buck Kelly, Al Smith, Scotty Plummer, Frank Vignola(who went on to become IMHO one of the all time great jazz guitarists of our time) and of course Rocky B...it's crazy how the list just goes on and on...can't believe I left out Johnny and Buddy and then of course Lowell and Debby S.....and the really special part is, all the folks I've mentioned are the nicest folks a person could ever meet and as you mentioned had the honor to sit and play with!!!
