remembering Snooks

Got word last Friday that N’awlins guitarist Snooks Eaglin had died. Guitarist hardly says it, neither does singer. A personality and style that big needs adjectives to match: exuberant! quirky! virtuoso! And unpredictable, especially in live shows. Yeah, all of that.

I never had a chance to see him, but I’m looking forward to playing some of his tunes on the show later today – the theme: Mardi Gras and Carnaval. (Mais oui, bien sǔr!)
