Remembering Jimmy Johnson from the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section

Rest in Peace dear guitar master. One of my all time faves.

Back in ’78, Don DeVito at Columbia Records suggested that I work with Barry Beckett, the keyboardist at Muscle Shoals Sound, and make a record down that way. I had the honor of working with Barry and the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, including the AMAZING and wonderful guitar player JIMMY JOHNSON. Jimmy has recently passed away. Here’s to a great American player. Thank you Jimmy Johnson. Here’s one of the songs we recorded with him on that burning telecaster guitar.

Won’t you let me take you on a Sea Cruise?

Hi friends, thanks for stopping by. I have just returned from a cruise on a large ship filled with musicians of renown from the ’70’s on and the fans and friends that give them support, affection and oxygen. What fun! I was invited to come along and sing with Peter Asher on his Memoirs show. He and I made my Sister Kate album which was released in 1971. This cruise was a blast. Here’s a picture from the deck on one of the first days out.

Some photos from 1978

Hi pals! Friend Mark Grandfield sent along these photos that his brother took in 1978 at a No Nukes Concert on a hillside on Martha’s Vineyard. That’s brother Alex and John Hall, Fingers Taylor on harmonica, and other fabulous musicians. The day was a sparkler. We had fun and raised some serious cash and awareness. xoxo
