Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

One of the most iconic bluesmen died yesterday age 70. Johnny Winters was on tour in Europe and died in a Zurich hotel room.
Included in Rolling Stone magazine's top 100 guitarists (63) Winters heavily influenced the career of Muddy Waters producing several of his later albums including the 1981 release King Bee.
Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, former lover Janis Joplin and The Stones were just some of the many whose lives intertwined with Johnny Winter.
Rest In Peace.
