Ännu en # dahlia #samhopkins från #Magnolia . Egentligen ännu mörkare än på bilden.

Must be Friday cause I have Lightnin' spinnin' on the table. "The Blues" recorded in 1951 and issued by Mainstream Records. Have a FANTASTIC weekend!🍻

Last time I was in Houston, my friend Melissa Noble took me on a secret trip with Brian Feehan to Lighting Sam Hopkins old place in Third Ward. Brian used to play bass with Lightin' when you was but a lad. Brian told me great stories about Lightin' . One of my favorites is when ZZ Top was backing Lighting and they weren't getting the bass lines like Lighting liked it. It seems they wanted the songs to stay in tempo and change chords at the "correct& #34; time. I know my musician friends feel this. Anyway, Lighting stops the show and calls out, "Brian ! Brian, come up here..."
Brian filled in. I remember reading a story of lightin' and ZZ Top years ago. It was the same basic idea of Lighting not changing chords according to the correct pattern but the story I read said that Lighting turned to them and said, "Lightin& #39; change when Lightin' wanna change!"

"People have learned how to strum a guitar, but they don't have the soul. They don't feel it from the heart. It hurts me. I'm killin' myself to tell them how it is."

Lightnin' ! Sam Hopkins recorded more albums than any other bluesman, and was perhaps the greatest single influence on rock guitar players.
