RIP... Russell George

We're both shocked and saddened tonight.

We've just learned a friend and the proprietor of our favorite dive in Memphis is dead.

Things will never be the same without Russell George; South Main St. or Earnestine and Hazel's.
Our neighborhood just lost it's ambassador, a good friend, and a great deal of it's color.

On our last night in Memphis we stopped by and had dinner at his joint... Russell would always come over and sit with us and we'd joke and reminisce about music, the clubs, and the old days... he said he was going to come down and see us on the boat one day... he always said that, he never did.

It's a shame... as he would say, "A cryin'-damn-shame."

Article here... Russell George, proprietor of Earnestine & Hazel’s, was found dead in the well-known bar in Downtown Memphis Monday.

Hope you're better now, Russell.

Maybe there's a new ghost at Earnestine and Hazel's.

Decisions... Decisions

Our days are numbered in Annapolis, just don't know that number yet. We've thoroughly enjoyed being here, but it's getting to be time for something different.
Not sure where or when just yet...


Annapolis is at the top of our list of places to return to.

It was once a studio and many artists signed this stairwell of fame.
