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.

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.

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
