  1. I was wondering why the Derek Trucks band was doing a tribute to him last week when I saw them...Pollstar didn't report it. I just found out today.

    I found out the next morning on NPR. I was planning on seeing him this week at Yoshi's. :meh:

  3. I was thinking about going to Yoshi's too. Did you see him a few years ago at the SF Blues Fest? He had Russell Malone playing guitar - great.

    I saw him at Yoshi's a couple of years ago. I remember telling my lady that we had to go, as I wasn't sure how much longer he would be with us. I'm so happy we got to go. He was awesome to see live.

    RIP Jimmy Smith.
