Here 'tis. We'd moved on in recent years from playing mainly blues to playing mainly soul: 

Love Me Like A Man (Bonnie Raitt)      
God Bless The Child (Blood Sweat & Tears)   
Victim Of Love (The Eagles)
You Can Leave Your Hat On (Joe Cocker et al.)   
Real Mother For Ya / Gangster Of Love (Johnny "Guitar" Watson)
I Got A Woman (Ray Charles)
Papa Was A Rolling Stone (The Temptations)   
Walking The Dog (Rufus Thomas)
That's How Strong My Love Is / Hard To Handle / Mt. Pitiful (Otis Redding)
In The Midnight Hour / Land of 1000 Dances / 634-5789 / Mustang Sally (Wilson Pickett)
Fool For Your Stockings (ZZ Top)
When Something Is Wrong With My Baby (Sam & Dave)
Mess Of Blues / One Night (Elvis)
Whole Lotta Rosie (AC/DC)
Ha, this is way funny. Not the single song I like. Tongue Except Wilson Pickett's. You played keyboards, right? Anything else?

There are some there I wouldn't bother listening to either!

I used to play bass guitar with my brother's band in the UK in the early '70s but bass technique has moved on slightly since then!

Tony Asher celebrates his 79th birthday today. Many happy returns, sir, and thank you for your invaluable part in a truly magical project. :=)

"Don't Talk" blew my mind when I first heard it in 1967...

Those who post at PSF--and I include myself--have just celebrated that forum's second year. I sincerely hope the relations between PSF and Smiley have now settled, particularly since Craig (guitarfool) himself joined its ranks a short while back.

I know for a fact that there have been misunderstandings between the two forums--and some are ongoing and still require closure--but most posters on both sides have no quarrel with each other personally. Let's hope that's the way things will remain.

Me too. I occasionally lurk there and I am glad things seem to be cooling off. They certainly have on my end. There will always be issues with me and a couple of other people there (one in particular) but I certainly have no ill will to the rest of the board and general population.

On a different note...I have seen a couple of members there who have posted that they have registered here as well but their accounts were not approved. If you see anything like that, can you have them email me at fear2stop@yahoo.com or just pass the info to you and message me here? I may have deleted them by accident when cleaning out obvious spam accounts.

Thank you kindly...it's the bad thing about having so many spambot accounts, as sometimes a potential "real" account will inadvertantly get deleted because it looks like a spambot account.

I've heard that Billy Castillo is in hospital.

I'll be thinking of you, man. You be out there soon, okay?

I was released late last night... Iím ok . Turns out it was a complex migraine and that can mimic the effects of a stroke (which wouldíve been my third) . Considering I had a TIA a few weeks ago that was some scary business.

On a brighter note Iíve lost 55 pounds since August and am now only 13 pounds away from my target.

I can imagine that was scary. That's a relief, I can tell you.

Wow, Billy. Keep up the good work!
