Since I was a kid in my little french pyrénées village
close to Spain, I was only listening to Blues, Rock
& Roll, Funk and Jazz music coming from the states.
The dream was to go there and see what that was all about.
It took a long time but here I am and happy to be there
sharing the "experience" and simply enjoying the cultural change, the possibility of individual choices, and the open society.
My favorite artists at the time were :
Jimy Hendrix, Roy Buchanan, Jeff Beck, John Mayall, J. geils Band, B.B King, Eric Clapton, John MacLaughin, Hubert Sumlin, The Doors, Ten Year After and many, many others that
could make that list very long. Still, seeing some of them still around at the 2007 Crossroads festival is a pure joy...and listening to guys like Robert Randolph, The Derek
trucks makes me just happy to be still around.
Happy and ready to stay around as long as possible. ;)
