    Now THAT is music to wake up and have coffee with….! One of my favorite things to do at the cottage years ago was to get up, go down to the deck with coffee and boom box, and listen to Muddy Waters. A perfect way to start the day….
    58 years…. and you’re right, it never gets old. I still get the chills every time I listen to Muddy….

    I’m curious…. What is your opinion on Willie Dixon…? Better musician or better writer? Here’s a man who wrote some of the most covered blues classics, yet I’ve not thought that much of him as a performer. Am I way off base here? I do have a cd of his, where he plays his own work, but…. I dunno…. I just feel that others have interpreted his songs so much better….
