Blues legend Johnny Jenkins was born March 5, 1939 Bibb County, Georgia. He was touring the south with his band "The Pinetoppers" late 50's when he hired a new up and coming lead singer....Otis Redding. At first, Otis was Johnny's driver because Johnny had no license. But once everybody heard Otis sing, his chauffeur days were over. Hendrix cited left handed playing Jenkins as an early influence on his own style of playing. I don't believe any video exists of those days. On Johnny's 1970 debut solo album "Ton-Ton Macoute!" (literally "boogeyman" in Creole) Duane Allman appears, along with Butch Trucks, Berry Oakley and Jaimoe from the ABB :cool: Johnny died after a stroke, June 26, 2006 in Georgia. The Pinetoppers.."Shout Bamalama" 1960

Patsy Cline was born Virginia Patterson Hensley, September 8, 1932 Winchester, Virginia. On March 5, 1963 the small Piper single prop plane carrying Patsy, performers Cowboy Copas, Hawkshaw Hawkins, and pilot Randy Hughes went down near Camden, Tennessee in poor weather conditions. The airfield manager in Kansas City, where the flight originated, offered the group free rooms and supper if they would put the flight off til the next day. They all agreed to take off and continue on to Nashville. There were no survivors.

I had no idea those guys were cousins. What talent. If those pianos don't get you moving then you better check to see if you're alive. Mom taught piano for years but never taught me. Guess at the time, I didn't care. Maybe I better have her teach me now.

Legendary session drummer Hal Blaine passed away March 11, 2019 Palm Desert, California. Mr. Blaine was born February 9, 1929 Holyoke, Massachusetts.

Considered the most recorded drummer in music history... 35,000 sessions, 6,000 recorded singles, appears on 150 Top #10's, and 40 #1's o_O

Mike Gibbins was the drummer for "Badfinger" during their peak years of '65-'75 (and later incarnations). He was born March 12, 1949 Swansea, Wales. He passed in his sleep from a brain aneurysm October 4, 2005 in Florida. George Harrison's side project started out great but later became one of the most tragic stories of a group of the era with two suicides, infighting, ripped off by record labels, and George really not having the time to work with them like he wanted.

In 2013 Jimi Hendrix has his highest chart debut since 1969 when his new studio album, "People, Hell & Angels", sells 72,000 copies in the US on the week of release and made its debut at No.2 on the charts. Sure there are plenty of crappy releases from after Jimi's death, but this one contains some great quality previously unreleased tracks... full album streams free on Amazon..(y)
