My Honeyboy is officially retired as of Sunday. I understand why. Health issues. He’s 96. But I hate to think of him not playing his guitar and performing. Seems to me when you stop doing that which you love, that you’ve done for so long, it’s like giving your body permission to just…stop. So, I’m concerned, but also wishing him the best.
That said, it’s obvious I need to find myself another older bluesman to adore. That’s where Taildragger comes in.
Oh who am I kidding? I’m a collector. Nobody’s taking Honey’s place. They’re all special to me.
