,Willie Dixon, John Podesta... Junior Wells bought me a beer in a bar once... John was an undergrad friend and a great guy.......Bobby has actually become a friend and I'm supposed to play with him again in September.....Ernie was a true gentleman who stopped to talk with me despite having had a long day already. Same thing on the same day with Curt Flood and Joe Cunningham (St. Louis Cardinals, for the non-baseball fans reading this thread)...Hung out with Bonnie in her dressing room, and she was a real sweetheart, very down to earth as were the Dixie Chicks, who I did a show with before they were famous. Did a show with Willie and he was a kind and generous soul.Drank beer and ate ribs with him after being told by the promoters that all that was off-limits to anyone but Willie and his band , but he just laughed at that, and then invited us in and told us to eat and drink up... Bo was not very friendly after the one time I played with him but I'd had a nightmarishly bad night and don't blame him for being rather cold to me; he was expecting a pro and I sounded like an amateur that night.
My favorite one though is not a celebrity but I revel in its obscurity. My old college roommate is the author of the words: "tough actin' tinactin".
