Spoon's Birthday

I'm getting an early start on celebrating Jimmy Witherspoon's birthday. He was one of the blues greats and I was fortunate to take photos of him when he was part of the Blues Jam in Vancouver. The guitarist behind him in this photo is Hollywood Fats, who is also in my book, Everybody I Shot Is Dead.

JIMMY WITHERSPOON
8/8/20 - 9/18/97

I chose this video because it's Spoon at his best and you get to see a very young Robben Ford, who I shot when he was playing with George Harrison, killing it on guitar.
