I re=read Peter Guralnick pieceon Muddy in Feel Like Going Home last week an ahe gets over the special place Walter had with Muddy. " Little Walter lefthome at 8..." tells you what you need to know about his hand inlife.
Guralnick's latest book might interest you Richard and anyone else smitten
Guralnick interview here is good, Wolf and Solomon Burke captured his soul I thinkhttp://wtfpod.libsyn.com/episode-676-peter-guralnick
Mark Maron is worth skipping through , interview around 1.25
Nice, that's going on the list! Super dug the favorite albums article too--especially the bit about enjoying Dylan for his mind. That's why I listen to a lot of things, for sure--it's not necessarily the musicianship or the melody, it's that I'm entranced with how the person thinks. Same with books; maybe it's not the strongest plot or whatever, but there's something so good about the language or a character that you can't help but love it. I feel like that's true for people, too. They might be a little scratched or dented, maybe they're missing a part or two, and maybe they don't always behave the way we'd prefer, but don't they shine up pretty?
Wait. That's cars. I'm talking about cars. But anyway. You get me.
