Goodbye Dale

Well, the party's over for sure now. As if Ash Wednesday wasn't "ashy" enough, I wake up to find that Louisiana rock and roll pioneer, Dale Hawkins has passed away. A teenage James Burton played the iconic guitar hook, but Hawkins wrote the song, Susie Q.

Daniel Kreps wrote this obit on Check out the TV yellow Les Paul Jr. he's playing in the video too, and of course, the synchronized clapping in the audience. I don't know why I like that so much but I sure do.

Alright, it's a short week, one foot in front of the other, that's all you gotta do.
