Heroes

With bassist Jack Casady (Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna) during my weekend workshop with him at Jorma' Kaukonen's Fur Peace Ranch in southern Ohio. He asked if I wanted him with or without his trademark sunglasses.

With "The Captain," Jorma Kaukonen at his Fur Peace Ranch. For my student "recital" at the end of the weekend, I played Jorma's "Been So Long." it was an amazing thrill.

Sam Andrew, Janis's guitar man, at Wetlands, NYC, where he joined Moby Grape. In 1968 I saw Sam with Big Brother & The Holding Company at the Fillmore East. Sam is still the Man.

Ian McLagen, member of Small Faces/Faces, taken in NYC 2004. I was lucky enough to commission Mac to add his keyboards to my cover of his song "Up The Wooden Hills to Bedforshire."

Ronnie Lane with Faces at Ungano's. I was proud to cover his song, "The Poacher," on my new CD.

Percy Sledge in Alabama 2000.

Rockabilly King, Carl Perkins at J&R in-store signing and performance. That same night he did another performance and signing in midtown. A true "Country Gentleman."

With the great Arthur Alexander after his triumphant set at the Bottom Line in 1991. His set that night led to his 1993 comeback album, "Lonely Just Like Me."

Legendary songwriter and arranger Alan Toussaint at New Orleans Jazz Fest, 1987

"Sweet" Judy Collins backstage Brooklyn College, 1967. I showed her this photo many years later at a Strand bookstore signing.
