I met John Hurt through Mike Seger in Newport in '63. His agent, Tom Hopkins said we could sit and talk. Of course it was a festival and I was sitting backstage with him and a few people. A month or so later he was playing at the Philadelphia folk festival. I saw him approaching me and I started walking briskly to him to ask if he remembered me, I was in my early 20s, and when I got near enough, he said 'Hey Man! Do you remember me!?' hehe! That explains Mississippi John Hurt! Instead of me asking, he did! - Jerry Ricks, http://www.blueschat.com/tscripts/bc062198.htm

Steve Mann Sighting

Ran into Steve in a Pete's coffee shop in my neighborhood in Oakland just now. He looked a lot older than when I last saw him a few years ago. I probably do, too.

I mostly spoke with the young couple he was with, one of whom, Joe, I think, is his caregiver and apparently they live in Richmond. Joe is also a player and says that Steve is still showing him things and that his playing is still pretty good. They (mostly Steve) were carrying a guitar.

Steve seemed to be OK. I let him deal with the counter folks and such as that seemed to take his concentration, if you know what I mean. (Like I won't be there soon!) We talked just briefly, enough for me to mention seeing him play a few times in recent years (Tho' I don't think he has performed anywhere in the last 2 or 3.) and meeting him at his last party up on Shattuck in North Berkeley. I said I knew a lot of folks who would like to know he was doing OK.

He asked me to call anytime. I might take him up on that.

All for now.
