On his seventy-seventh birthday, I salute you.
Athens, Georgia – Proud to be a part of this amazing non-profit organization, Girls Rock Athens. Tonight’s benefit [Really, these past few days of Ladies Rock Camp, leading up to the show] was not short of sonically amazing. As a parting gift, I played electric bass and received a blister.
If you live in town, check out the link…look it over…and see where either you or a young girl you know would fit. We would love to have you [as well as foster the ‘next’ Patti Smith, Tina Turner or Wendy Carlos].
Rock on, woman/ women.

The funeral of American jazz trumpeter, band leader and composer Louis Armstrong. At the 1:51 mark, witness Peggy Lee’s stirring rendition of The Lord’s Prayer.
It’s worth noting, I’d been searching for this footage since first viewing it in the early morning hours, watching cable in the early 1990s.
Please, enjoy the filmed footage in its’ entirety.
