May the lightest of lights shine upon the friends and family of R. L. Burnside. The greatest bluesman of all time in my book is dead. I had the pleasure of seeing R.L. Burnside numorous times at First Ave. in Minneapolis. They were some of the wildest and craziest concert experiences ever! Peet and I were even in a mosh pit at one of the shows. After one of the shows I was lucky enough to go backstage and meet him. He was pretty tipsy and told me a story about a dog in Iowa. He also seemed like he had kind of a crazy side. In one biography, they said a live mic caught him saying "the devil is who I serve" as he walked by. Tonight I will drink a 7 and 7 in your memory..god bless you R. L. burnside.

In other music news..I am really diging "Do You Want To" by Franz Ferdinand. It's almost funky in a way. Wait, it is pretty funky. "I love your friends..they're all so artsy." Nice.
