Remembering Papa John Creach

Papa John Creach impressed me so much, as a person and musician. When I asked him if I could take photographs of him in his dressing room, he said yes and then asked me what I wanted him to do. I told him to pretend I wasn't there and to do whatever he did before a show. Sweet sweet man...this is one of those unposed photographs and to this day one of my favorites.
