The Strat is 60! I've had mine for a year and a half now. I'm 61.
B. passed her upper respiratory infection on to yours truly. I'm pretty miserable. Consoled myself with Classic Concerts by Muddy Waters on DVD. Some very moving footage in the compilation (from the 1960 Newport Jazz Festival, the 1968 Copenhagen Jazz Festival, and the Morde Jazz Festival --Norway-- in 1977). Plus there are bonus features--an extra song ("The Blues Had a Baby and they Named it Rock & Roll"), and two interviews.
Each gig featured different band configurations. Very nice to see the great Otis Spann on piano.
