Bill Campbell: One Of The Under-Rated, imo.

Go here to peruse an elegantly composed outline of his profession. He is pretty much as the title of this website section demonstrates, very nearly shockingly under-evaluated. I say in light of the fact that I've seen him being "truly on" by and by. Heck, ask somebody who knows, in the same way as Jimmie Vaughan. Ask soul divas Angela Strehli or Lou Ann Barton. Ask Clifford Antone. Ask Johnny Moeller, or his sibling Jay (drummer for Austin soul wonderkid Gary Clark Jr).

Jay Moeller, a few years back, related this story to me. He said he was helping Bill move late one Sunday evening, and after landing there he was strolling down the walkway to his condo when he heard what he portrayed as unquestionably the bluesiest acoustic guitar being played; As it was getting to be clearer to him the closer he got, he was attempting to evaluate what in the damnation record that was ('reason he needed a greater amount of it). Bill's front entryway was open, so Jay strolled in. There sat Bill, his once again to the entryway, pickin' on an old acoustic guitar. To be more exact, as Jay put it, "Pickin' the LOW DOWN HELL out of an old acoustic guitar. I didn't say poo. I simply remained there and tuned in.

I said fundamentally the same thing when I heard him (shockingly) play bass behind Lou Ann Barton at an outside Deep Ellum celebration a couple of years prior. My recommendation, get him and contract him when you can. On guitar or bass.

Other than all that Zuzu Bollin let me know that amid the time he used (post rediscovery) in Austin, that Bill was his most loved feline. For me, cap says more than whatever else might be available ever could.

Btw, one all the more thing before I stop whipping on this tired old stallion; I continue listening to Cheney and his team saying the reason they took care of things the way they did, was on account of their primary concern was the welfare of Mr Whittington. THAT IS odd as damnation, on the grounds that on the off chance that you or me had recently accidently shot a companion, and were worried about their treatment and condition, we would have emulated the rescue vehicle to the clinic. Dick didn't go till late the following day. He was covering up inside the farm, ducking the neighborhood sheriffs who needed to question him about what had happened.

Is it true that he was drinking? Who knows, he has had two dwi's in the past however, so there is room to ponder. That may additionally be the reason he didn't show up at the healing center the nighttime of the mischance.

Alright, numerous individuals do you realize that have one of their tunes secured by the unbelievable (however fleeting) band Blind Faith? Times up. The chances are thin and none, unless maybe you know multi-WC Handy honor winning soul performer Sam Myers! The tune is "Resting In The Ground," and they make a reasonable showing of it. Not on a par with Sam's unique, that is a gem waiting to be discovered, that we'll never be equalled.

Significantly more imperative than that will be that tomorrow (Feb nineteenth) is Sam's 70th Birthday! A few Dallas soul people, with Hash Brown in charge at his jam tomorrow nite at the Cottage Lounge, are setting up Sam a gathering (6-10pm). C'mon out and give to him all the best. He is the closest thing this town has to a genuine, soul legend. We're fortunate to have had in our middle throughout the previous 20 years, and God willing he'll be here for 20 more.
