Monday...

    In the summer of 1979, I was in Los Angeles meeting my husband to be's family. We took the opportunity to go to Disneyland. We were at the music area waiting resting on our way to see the Electric Light Parade. There was an old style band playing and just my fiancee, his 8yr old son, and me sitting there. There was an old black man with smiling eyes and face standing up front. Then I saw the drum with the letters CB on it. I told my husband to be. What the fuck, do you know who this is? Count Basie! I looked around and people just passed by. I told my man that I am going to sit a spell and give this legendary band man some respect and enjoy his music. I felt honored and ashamed that I could not stay until he stopped. Disneyland in a day and after using up all our E tickets, the parade was our last need to see. I imagine that anyone playing Disneyland is just for backup, but hope they all got paid well.

    Love it! Pretty sure that's an Elmore James song. Allman Brothers recorded it too. Count Basie, what a treat!

    Isn't that Buddy Guy with Carlos?

    Yea, but he let Carlos do it all, I almost think Carlos was showing off.
    He should of let Buddy do some of it, but then Buddy figures that well, Carlos got it going on.

    Bluezy likes the blues and feels the blues, just don't really know the blues music. I figured CB song was different.
