Tony Joe White R.I.P.

Pete Prescott…  I thought he was so cool !  My brother Chris saw him at the isle of Wight festival in 70. Cozy Powell played drums for him. We had the “groupy girl” single and “save your sugar for me”. I played sheriff of Kalhoun county at the dolphin on my cd/ vinyl night a while ago. Great songwriter/ singer.  He wrote pole Poke Salad Annie. sad.

David Edwards… Just been listening to a couple of his songs and was reminded of how good he was.

Eric Harmer… I really think he was underestimated Pete. He was still giging recently

Pete Fisher… He was a one-off…such a good singer and guitarist

Alan Parker… great guitarist and singer, seems like hardly a week goes by without another great one leaves us these days.

Jan Warren… Oh nooooo, I loved him and his music, “Groupy Girl” was brilliant and many more, still got some singles and albums…. R.I.P. Tony.

Alan Esdaile… Not forgetting he also wrote Rainy Night In Georgia.

Tony Davis…  His song I Gotta Thing About You Baby always brings back memories for me. RIP

Alan King… the three albums he did for Warner Bros in the 70’s were very very good, Tony Joe White, Home Made Ice Cream and The Train I’m On. one of my all time favourites – I’m gonna miss him – great to see him come back in the early 90’s

Alan King… I did leave a vinyl copy of the Tony Joe White album at the Royal Standard about 4 years ago – wonder if it’s still there ? hope it’s still getting played a lot, I always used to put it on when I went in there

Will Cornell… He not only wrote fantastic songs, and kind of set the style that Creedence adapted…his friendships yielded some great results too….check out his help on Waylon Jennings last truly fantastic album, “Waymore’s Blues Pt. 2”. Co-wrote some of the songs and played backup gtr and harmonica…..
