Thread Name: info about Paul Clayton??
Subject: RE: info about Paul Clayton??
That was some strange stuff goin' down back in those times. Best way to avoid it was just not to get too close. We're still here but Butterfield and Bloomfield (a friend) and Clayton and Jim Jones etc. are long gone on their voyage to that spaceliner beyond that comet. Chicago was a grand time (as was Boston) back then. What wondrous sounds! Siegel-Schwall Band, Charlie Musselwhite, Butter & Bloomfield, and Muddy & Wolf and Little Walter and Otis Spann & Jimmy Cotton & Big Joe Williams and his 9-string guitar & Blind Jim Brewer & Martin, Bogan and Armstrong (Howard Armstrong is still going strong) & Walter Vinson & Elmore James----not to mention the fine jazz scene! Whew!! It was the ONLY place to be back then! Sure glad I was there. ART
