I am left speechless by what has happened in the last 16-20 hours since I last wrote, with a constatnt pain level of four, and sleep imposible when I've tried.I fell asleep at 1 yestrday afternoon ,woke up a 5 oclock or so ffeling not even minimal discomfort. Suddenly I could go everything that were excruciating if I tried them Wednesday. Since there I hve felt increasingly operational in all bodily parts. I have tested playing the guitar. It works.I work. I do not have an MRI until next Thursday the 11th, but if I feel no worse than this on that day I will have no need for one. Hey, I;m tough, I heal quicker than most, but speaking as a veteran dealer with serious injury, this is nothing less than miraculous. I must believe that all y'all's prayers for me must have closed the tear, if there indeed was one. Thank you!! ... See MoreSee Less

*Saturday, August 13th 8pm* Watermelon Slim Offical LIVE!If you know, you know. And if you don’t, we’re about to tell you.Watermelon Slim is blues incarnate. He’s a blues god, with a career that spans decades. He set a record with his band The Workers for more consecutive Blues Music Awards in history, with 12 in two years. For perspective, he beat out B.B. King, Buddy Guy and Robert Cray on this one. For Watermelon Slim, it’s hard to say which came first – life or the blues. Far from a cushy existence, this man’s resume reads as much like he’s a king of the blue collar as he is a king of the blues.
Watermelon Slim farmed watermelons (yep, that’s how he got his name,) served in Vietnam, worked as a long-haul trucker, forklift operator, sawmiller, collection agent, funeral officiator, and firewood salesman. Not to let the day to day suppress his dreams and creativity, Slim completed two undergrad and a master’s degree, painted art, started a family and joined Mensa, a group reserved for only certified geniuses.But it’s always the blues that drives him. Watermelon Slim was born to play the blues. The blues that express feelings, sadness, melancholy - the ache. The blues that require choking the guitar strings and pushing that bottleneck down hard until the instrument squeals in pain. The blues – rhythmic, expressive inflections letting the story be told in the how as much as the why. Watermelon Slim is coming to Fox & Locke August 13th to play some gut-wrenching, world class blues.Get your tickets while they last. It will sell out y’all!!!TICKETS: www.foxandlocke.com/event-details/watermelon-slim ... See MoreSee Less
