And yet another...


Recommended Posts

Sir Mack Rice, Funk artist and composer of such flagship funk/soul tunes like "Mustang Sally" and Respect Yourself" died Monday of Alzheimer's.


Early on, he performed with a vocal group called THE FALCONS with Wilson Pickett and Eddie Floyd. In later years, it was Pickett who made "Mustang Sally" a hit. Basement/garage bands back in the day used to try to put "Mustang Sally" in their repertoires.


Mr. Rice was 82 years of age.


I started out with NOTHING...and I still have most of it left!

Another milestone...


I've always loved that song, a great chestnut and standard, despite many players' lament that it'd become a cliche too often played by bands and at open-mic jams... Unlike some such songs, I never got tired of it...

Ask yourself- What Would Ren and Stimpy Do?

I haven't THAT song in years, LOL. I like Buddy Guy's version with Jeff Beck; those two guys are going to play together soon in NYC. Should be well worth seeing.


That's my favorite version also.

Unfortunately I was out on tour when Jeff & Buddy came through LA. Otherwise I'd have been there in a heartbeat.
