Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

For hardcore Blues fans only...Really. I ain't shittin' ya!

By Honeyboy Edwards, as narrated to Buddy Blue

Dave "Honeyboy" Edwards, born June 28, 1915, was present at the nativity of the blues -- which is not unlike having arm-wrestled General Lee. Edwards won't, however, be around for the blues' last rites -- and according to Honeyboy, no one else ever will, either.

At age 90, Edwards remains in full control of both his extensive faculties and musical talents. Effusive, gracious and boasting a steel-trap recall the envy of a man a fraction his age, Edwards is precious American treasure, history on the hoof.

Under extenuating circumstances like, say, when trying to do justice to the life of a man who intimately knew and performed with such mythical figures as Robert Johnson, Charlie Patton and Son House, words fail even the most windy of wordsmiths. No, better to let Edwards -- who performs January 26th at Acoustic Music San Diego, a must-see event, relate his own story.

To read this interview you have to sign up for Buddy's newsletter. Send an email to and you will be automatically enrolled. Then forward your first email to me at and I will send you the text. Buddy doesn't archive his newsletter that I can see, so it's the only way you are going to get your eyeballs on it. Yeah, it's a multi-step process that ought to discourage any flyweight fans, but if you can't follow a few simple instructions, piss off! Oh, and I won't do a damn thing with your email address but admire it as belonging to a "true believer" as I delete it from my address book after sending you the interview. --pseudolus
