Speaking of Bleu Jackson. When I played bass in his band, I remember we played Jonesboro days. Dan Hinton on guitar, Phil Leonard on drums, Brian DuBoise on harp, Bleu and me. The next day we met at QB's to split the take. It was $200 or $250 or something like that-- not chump change for someone who worked at the Firehouse BBQ like myself. Anyway, the whole band is sitting there splitting a pitcher when Bleu shows up. "Guys, I got paid but I rode my motorcycle home-- and the check must have blown out of my pocket". Don't know if he was lying or not -- all I know is I never saw a dime. Such was life as a white-boy blues man.
