In memory of my old friend and bandmate Doug Slocum. Just found out he passed in february, and we never got a chance to say goodbye or pay him tribute, so here we go. RIP old friend.
I dug out a couple of old recordings. This is one of Doug’s favorite songs to play. He played his slide guitar on this one, and he lets it rip. This shows what a great musician he was, the recording here is not great because it was made on a cassette recorder in a bar in 1984 or so…it might have been recorded on the very night that picture was taken because I can see a mic on the floor in front of Doug and that’s how we used to do it. Anyway, this is Horsefeather featuring Doug Slocum on Statesboro Blues…
