"valentine's day, day of THOR,14 feb 19. Leon Rich whom hosts the Outpost 186 busker's night monthly threw a birthday party for Sharon Crumrine of Ginger Ibex. That lil space was packed! A lot of good music, let ME promote ME, as I am wont to do.....put together an ad hoc band of Captain Easychords on upright piano (he and I have many Cal CAli gigs this year) and Birthday Gurl on flute and did "My first wife done left me" and "driftin and driftin" off John Lee Hooker/Canned Heat Hooker and Heat. Since the Outpost LOOKS like a store front church, Leon hollered for some gospel! (well, I WUZ playin' the devil's music....) so I decided on "aint nobody can do me like jesus" by reverend James Cleveland and BIG kudos to the Captain and the birthday gurl for following me! A friend of Leon's thought I sang like Leon Russell (born 2 april!) BUT at the LAST out of the blue benefit, I heard same comment from Glider's guitarist Al! I try to sing Mississippi and come out Okie.....End of night always a big beatle jam so "come Together"; EASY CHORDS as front man, me-guitar, Leon-piano, birthday girl-flute. We had NEVER played together but again, level of musicianship; a jam that worked (twice!)...Next Leon Busker night at Outpost; Thor's Day, 14 March 19! see you there!"....
