it may have well have already been posted

if you can make it thru those first 12 irritable seconds you'll realize, no, it's not a Gumby & Pokey episode

Steve seems to have lost both the extra weight and his hair in the last several years..
Maybe he'll write a tune about his Lightfoot session..

What a fun story...can you imagine, poor Steve get's dropped off at the driveway, slightly shaky knees while ringing the doorbell...to meet his 'hero' for the first time...

Probably had a similar nervous feeling in his stomach like I did when I met Gordon for the first time...For sure I won't forget that.

I must admit that only very recently my friend RJ here from Corfid introduced me to Steve Earle's music, before that his name didn't ring a bell. But I truly like him, he's a great musician and songwriter. Unfortunately I missed his concert here in Minneapolis just a couple weeks ago.

I am more than surprised, but less than stunned, to hear of the mutual admiration between Lightfoot and Earle. I have a pretty decent collection of Earle's music.....but never imagined any connection between the two artists.

The Legend Lives On.......
