Earl Hines really knows how to tickle the ivory.

Thanks, Rob. The man could play. Always glad to hear from you. Hope you have a great week ahead.

Noah, you know great music. I would have been spoiled if I had grown up in Chicago. The first time I was in Chicago, when I was a kid, when I landed at O'Hara the airport was so big that I thought that O'Hara was Chicago.

David Memphis is not too bad a place for music history either.  I have never been there but have heard all kinds of stories of Beale street in the good old days. Any comment?

As far as Chicago Blues I was lucky enough to see Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters, Freddie King and many long gone others in bars in the early 70's. I will never forget sitting at a bar of a small place called Biddy Mulligans and talking with Albert King on New Years Eve, shooting the breeze before he hopped on stage with that Flying Vee and started bending strings. It was a year or so before he passed. I think he lived in Memphis?

Albert King's rhythm guitarist, Ricky Harvey, was one of my best friends, Noah. I drove Rick to Albert's funeral. I owned a great looking short black Cadillac limousine at the time that I used for business and my car was at the head of the procession behind the hearse on Beale Street. Bobby Blue Bland's car was behind mine. Joe Walsh was with us later that day. He spoke at the funeral. Joe and I were good friends while he lived in Memphis and we spent a good deal of time together laughing and talking about this and that. I played piano with the tribute band the night of the funeral at Blues City Cafe on Beale. I got into a fight with one of the drunk house managers who was messing around with my girl and punched him out. I felt bad about it because the dude was killed in his Corvette a couple of days later speeding and drunk. Rick and I had coffee with Albert a couple of days before he passed away at the Yellow Rose Cafe on North Main Street. It was just before Christmas in 1992. He seemed fine but looked a little tired. Ricky and I spent the rest of the day looking at guitars at one of the shops on second street across the street from the Peabody Hotel, right after we left Albert. Gibson had customized a guitar for Ricky that he toured with and served as a Gibson Ambassador. Ricky died in 1993 from complications from his liver right after a concert that we played that was a tribute to Sonny Boy Williamson. We left and had dinner and went back to the house to watch the "Diary of Anne Frank". Rick fell asleep on the couch. And I left. His girlfriend called me the next morning to tell me that he had died in his sleep.

I still don't know why in the hell I stay in the real estate business. I guess it's just a family tradition, like the Hank Williams song goes. Playng the piano is my thing. But I love the people in this business. That's why I can't leave.....yet. I made some promises to stick around and I have to keep them, for now.

Great story David. I bet if we met we would talk for hours. I hope that happens some day. You have good taste in music. Speaking about your comment RIP Bobby Blue Bland, one of my favorite voices and underrated in my opinion.

I should have been at his funeral, Noah, but couldn't be.
