Happy 80th birthday to Willie Nelson!
Here’s a photo I shot of him in the San Bernardino Mountains, east of Los Angeles, in June, 2004.
Johnny Wright and Kitty Wells - musicians - Nashville, TN
Very sorry to hear that Kitty Wells died today. What a great woman and her husband Johnny Wright wasn’t a slouch either. Here’s my photo of them in late 2001 (he died last year).

I saw my pals JD and Jimmy play again last night here in NYC… they were twice as good as the last time I saw them. Here’s a photo I took of them last year in Chicago, in the studio where they recorded Signs & Signifiers, JD’s amazing first album. That’s JD on the right, he writes them, sings them and plays guitar. Jimmy on the left, he plays bass and sings some too. Both the album and their live shows of late are not to be missed. A taste:
