Sunday Nights at Nine
A couple of weeks ago, a got a phone call from a friend. He said = "Have you seen this week's River Front Times?" I told him that I hadn't. He said - "wel get one and look on page six." I did and there was a nice little write-up on my good friend Earl Gibson with a sketch of Earl, the harmonica player and myself. It was nice of the RFT to include Hammerstones as one of their places to go, but I wish they had included guitarist Erik Brooks in the picture. After all it IS HIS GIG!
The writer of the piece must have been a younger person - for the songs he refers to as vaguely familiar include titles like "What a Wonderful World," "Make the World Go Away," The Everly Brothers "Dream, Dream, Dream", "Java Jive" "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown."
If you are ever in St. Louis on a Sunday night, please condier yourself invited as my special guest to Hammerstone's. I have taken dozens of people in and they have all loved Earl. Hope you will too.
