Re: Another Trivial Question.
Thanks for the info Rob. I guess that I just assume everybody knows that Muddy
Waters was McKinley Morganfield's stage name. I had met Brad Vickers several
times when he was touring with Little Mike. What is Paul Oscher up to. Hardly
ever hear about him and he was/is a great blues player.
Also last I heard Liitle Mike is living in Florida? So did any one see the
Pinetop show. I think he just turned 81? I guess there is hope for us all.

Excuse me a second, you're right "MO JO" is credited to Muddy, and also to
Mckinley Morganfield. But they are one an the same person. Glad to be here,
being a guitar player myself and having sat in with Junior Wells,
Paul Oscher, Buddy Guy, etc. I gotta tell ya, I'm from Manhattan, Paul Oscher
lives in Brooklyn, and he plays around under the name "Brooklyn Slim".
I saw Pinetop the other day. For the past year or more he has been using Danny
Russo on Harp and Brad Vickers on bass (who was/is the bassist with Little
Mike.) Danny and Brad are from New York City as I am, and I've had the
pleasure of playing with these artists also. Danny is a great harpist with
good singing voice. I always enjoy seeing him perform.
Thanks for listening...
