John Lee was one of the coolest dudes.  I love the banter before the song starts.

I've been to Montreux.  Took a train to the city, then immediately hopped on a bus out of the city.

OK, short CSB I guess.

The world became substantially less cool when he died.
Great submission, subby.

I was at the Montreaux Jazz festival in '94. Had a great time, but didn't catch anything as cool as this. Thanks, subby!

Met him a few times. Last time, he was old-man-shuffling by with a blonde Amazon on each arm; I asked him why he couldn't afford crutches. He laughed, as John Lee Hooker was a gentleman.
