Blues Guy Spreads Joy, Comps Tickets

 April 25, 2024

   Got a call yesterday from this blues guy I know who was following up on getting one of my Billy the Kid books sent out to a desert recording studio in Tornillo, Texas where he was laying down some tracks. He went on to say he was playing in Prescott Valley that night and if I knew anybody who might want to see the show to give him the word. So I put in a request for Stuart Rosebrook, his wife Julie and his daughter Kristina (it was her birthday) and they went to the show and landed in the 14th row.
