Vote for Johnny . . .

JOHN LEE HOOKER FOR PRESIDENT: too bad the man is dead. Anyway, that's the title of a delightful Ry Cooder opus.  Brilliant, creative player; while recording the music for the Bruce Willis flick, Last Man Standing, Ry created some powerful bass notes using an 8-foot 4x4 and a bass piano string strung on two spikes, with a guitar pickup underneath.
