Got the blues?

The late great Johnny Winter. One of my favourite blues-rock musicians of all time.

He came to UK in ’79. One concert. I saw the ad for the show in the Melody Maker. Emblazoned across it was the announcement. Sold Out!

I was in a foul mood for a week! Never got the opportunity to see him again.

Such is life!

Ark.

    The Sold Out Concert Blues

    Saw an ad for a concert
    But the show was sold out
    Oh, saw an ad for a concert
    But the show was sold out
    Caused much disappointment
    Of this there’s no doubt

    1. At the time, my thoughts were more Shakespearian.
      ”Now is the Winter of my discontent
      Made glorious summer by my Jo’berg Advent.”
