"Nobody is gonna come to Clarksdale, Mississippi to hear a black man play the git-tar!"
A colleague of ours is away this week in Clarksdale, Mississippi for a Blues Harmonica Jam Camp. So what’s in Clarksdale?
If there is any place in Mississippi that is more blue than Clarksdale, I have yet to visit it. There is more blues landmarks within Clarksdale than anywhere outside Memphis and Chicago. (From Key to the Highway)

Interesting things as usual...(but Ronnie Wood isn't a 'celebrity bassist': he is a 'celebrity guitarist'...)

Just found your thread.
Your colleague isn't Steve is it? Drunken wild man with a manic laugh :-)
I was at the Jam Camp - fantastic experience.
