Everybody lost their style after Whitney and Mariah. There's no depth. No taste. It's like cooking collard greens and not putting any meat in them - James Brown, upon turning 70, who was getting ready to take his jumpsuits and high heels on the road again during the summer of 2003. The hardest working man in showbiz has a lot to say about music today, and he doesn't sugarcoat it

Good job Terry Mullins there. Phil is truly, to use an overused superlative, but in this case it's fitting, amazing.

On my last trip to Port Townsend a few of us were sitting outside number 15 one early evening, and I idly started playing a blues in E, I think it was loosely based on Son House's Depot Blues but at a bit of a faster clip, more like Sam McGee's Railroad Blues, the two songs are closely related IMO and so I like to combine them.

Phil quietly appeared behind my left shoulder and started playing and it was like being scooped-up on the cow catcher of one of those old locomotives. After the initial surprise had worn off I just kept on playing and he literally pushed us both down the tracks. I don't think I've never played better or enjoyed myself so much, and I certainly never will forget the rush, it felt like accelerating down the runway on a jet. Whew!
