My wife and I saw him in a small club in Detroit in about 1965. 

 

Now playing:

And I saw the Muddy Waters band in 1969 at the unlikely setting of the Batley Variety Club as part of a triple package with a gospel group (Stars of Faith?) and the Horace Silver Quintet with the Brecker brothers and Billy Cobham. Liked the Silver group so much I travelled 200 miles to London to see them again at Scott's later that week.

That album cover terrified me the first time I saw it!  

Eat that chicken!  

 

When I hear that track I recall that during one of Roland Kirk's seasons at Ronnie Scott's in the 60s he spend a lot of time in Dobell's Jazz Record shop, leaning on the counter and demanding to hear one Fats Waller record after another. :lol:

:D :tup  great LP

Bill Holman was in the 1980ies one of the leaders of the WDR Big Band in Cologne along with Mel Lewis and played many of his great  compositions the first time here in Germany, sometime  first a rehearshed studio version and then a public concert. Everything transmitted by german radio Cologne (WDR)

At that time the WDR big band had no regular drummer so Mel sat in very often also with other US guests. Great times will never come back!

Looks like a 1977 Honda CB-400F Super Sport. I had one of those for several years. It was a fun bike. My wife might've looked something like that back then too. :)

You can tell it's a 1977 because of the higher handlebars. The older models had "cafe racer" style handlebars.

1977 Honda CB 400F

The 4-into-1 exhaust was also very distinctive on that bike.

I had a CB-650 back in the day.  Honda inline fours rule.  ;)
