    From what I've read/heard It's like Crossroad Blues was to Robert Johnson. It's his "dance with the devil" song for lack of a better term. Just my 2 cents. Snoogans, Ben

    It's always a great feeling after you've played for a long time. On the fourth of July I always go out on the deck, crank my amp to 10 and play the star spangled banner. It's a great feeling. I live in the woods so I never know if anyone can ...(more)
