Wise Fool's Pub. He'd walk OUT of the place as he played, so the folks who couldn't get in could see him!

"The Chief" may have performed in venues all over the globe but never was he more welcomed than the night he played at CODA in Joplin, Mo.
(A video of the evening is on-line for all to see yet.) The audience was elated and the showman / musician did not fail to deliver in presenting an outstanding show. It was a terrific event - brought joy to all and now, a delightful memory.

A true blues legend. Had the privilege to see him perform several times - always touched your heart and soul and put a smile on your face. The Chief will be sorely missed but never forgotten!
