Sittin’ in a bar, drinkin’ a jar in London (with Charley Patton, no less)…


  • Beer: Abott Ale 
  • Bar: The Zetland Arms, South Kensington 
  • Book: “Delta Blues” by Ted Gioia 

This is an EXCELLENT book if you are a fan of prewar blues. I am learning so much. Ted’s writing is a rhythmic and knowing prose. I feel like there is dirt under my feet and train whistles are blowing in the distance when I am reading this. I just bought this Charley Patton record (seen in the photo). It is my beer, bar, book talisman for this session. 

(As I write this “Green Onions” by Booker T. & The Memphis Group just came on the radio. Great music knows no geographical boundaries. Shit, I love those guys. I saw Booker T, Steve “Never Played a Bum Note In His LIfe” Cropper and Duck Dunn in Sydney last year.  Al Jackson RIP).

    Have you ever had a moving or DOT violation? Maybe endured a tragic accident while out on the road? Don’t face legal issues like these alone; get a Commercial Driver’s Legal Plan from Pre-Paid Legal Services. We offer legal services tailored to meet the needs of commercial drivers just like you. Protect your legal rights anywhere in the U.S. with toll-free access to legal counsel for issues or questions you encounter when you’re on the road.You can wait until you get a ticket before calling a legal service, but it’s generally not the best approach. Eddies Morgan of Pre-paid Legal Services says if someone with a moving violation buys a membership. Pre-paid will represent him for a flat fee of $200. American Truckers Legal Services requires a prospective member with an existing ticket to buy an eight-month membership. “It tends to be cheaper if they call us before, not after.” Says Millard Dean of ATLS. Waiting until you get ticketed to look for a lawyer on your own could give you questionable results, considering you might be asking strangers for recommendations about lawyers in unfamiliar cities. In such cases, it’s hard to gauge a lawyer’s reputation.“Make sure that the attorney you hire is a winner,” Dean says. “You have to be very, very careful.”
