Learning To Dream, Chapter 11, Page 6

Pinetop Perkins died Tuesday. Got to see him a couple of years back at the Waterfront Blues Fest. He was a spritely 95 then, and absolutely tore shit up. I mean, really. He poured everything out in the 90 degree heat, and did a “Got My Mojo Workin'” that was incredible. He joined Muddy Water’s band in his fifties, and Muddy said that he had more energy then the young guys in the band, and wore them out.

Here’s to you, Pinetop. We won’t see your like again…
