This post on James Endeacott's blog made me feel nostalgic for the week or so that Larry Jon Wilson came over to London. It feels like a different lifetime. A few friends and I hung out with him a lot that week, and I still feel good about the fact that I got to talk to him about Arthur Alexander and guitars and writing songs. But mostly I remember us talking about cricket and baseball and how good the first beer tastes after playing sport. Larry Jon gave the lie to the old addage about never meeting your heroes.
I tell James this every time I see him and I've had a few, but I'm still thankful he brought Larry Jon over, and got a few of us involved in the shows. It will mean a lot to me forever.
