GUEST,Graham Bradshaw Jesse Fuller - Footdoodler (19) RE: Jesse Fuller - Footdoodler 15 Dec 08

Just seen this thread. I was very honoured to see Jesse perform.
He played at Surbiton Assembly Rooms in about 1970, at what was reputed to be his last ever gig, before returning to the States and retirement. This may be anecdotal, but that is what was said at the time.
He was brilliant and so charismatic.
In the audience all the great and the good of the time. Most of the Stones, Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton and Donovan (who bought me a drink!! - not sure why). And that's just the ones I can remember.
Last chance to see the great man, I suppose.

An occasion to tell the grand-kids. That club was brilliant. Also saw Rev Gary Davis and Sonny Terry & Brownie Mcgee there as well.
