In the Doubletree

So here we are in Austin, waiting for ConMisterio to begin. Last night we went to see the Cornell Hurd Band, with our son doing the sound. He also did a guitar solo from the sound booth. Sounded great. The band had a couple of guests, Del Puschert, a guy who played sax. He toured with Elvis in the '50s, and he hasn't lost a step at age 72. Another guest was Pinetop Perkins, who's 93 and who plays boogie-woogie piano like a 20-year-old. He recorded at Sun Studios in the '50s, but only one song, "Pinetop's Boogie" was released, years after he recorded it.

A all around great show.

For a second there I thought you saw the Cornell Hull Band. Now that would have been newsworthy.

You saw Pinetop Perkins? You lucky son of a gun. Wish I had been there.

Saw him and got an autographed CD! As Cornell Hurd said, we were privileged to be in the audience.
