I've had the great pleasure
of backing the legendary "First Lady of Rock'n'Roll",
Wanda Jackson for several gigs
in Nashville & Memphis in recent years. The
above photo was taken at Nashville's
Belcourt Theater during Wanda's show
at the Americana Music Conference.
I was playing the harmonica and singing
harmony; Chris James was at
the keyboards; Walter Egan was on guitar; and
Kathy Burkly was on drums.
(Band members Gail Lloyd and Supe Granda were
out of camera range to the
right.) I'm glad to report that Wanda was inducted
-- and rightly so -- into the
Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame in 2009.
