Boom Boom Out Go The Lights vs The Harmonica

How many of you knew that Boom, Boom, Out Go The Lights was originally a Little Walter tune?

For all you rockers, here’s the Pat Travers version:

I played this with a harmonica player the other night. It seemed he was unfamilar with either version of this song.
Oh well…he’s heard it now!

Warning: lyrics not suitable for politically correct ears that can’t hear music.

Candy Hall, RIP

Last Thursday, the world lost a great person and a great voice – Candy Hall.
She was a blessing to any that knew her, a true friend to her friends & loved ones & a hoot to hang with. The world is a quieter, more lonely, less interesting place without her:

Memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. at Williams Memorial Chapel in Garland TX, to be followed by a celebration of her life at Chasers Lounge in far east Dallas.

A second memorial celebration will be held Monday, April 29, 2013 at 7:00pm at Arthur’s Prime Steaks & Seafood in Addison TX, her longtime place of employment.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in her name to the Eastlake Pet Orphanage.

A couple of days ago, I’m wandering around the interwebs and find this. The song does get you going, doesn’t it?
