Big Joe Williams

Of course I was turned onto this by AC/DC as a kid, but man Big Joe was the first to play it and he's playing a 9 string guitar. I bet Matt Pike digs this 9 stringer.

Digging in the Crates

this is pretty good short essay from Ta-Nehisi Coates of the Atlantic on why Andy Rooney doesn't know music. A friend of mine in college would always argue with me about music, I was into anything outside the mainstream and he was into classic rock. All of our arguments ended the same way - I could talk about any band he knew of, but he could never talk about bands I knew of. Ta-Nehisi breaks it down - "Whatever you think of the music, no self-respecting hip-hop head, at that time, could ever get away with saying, "Man, I don't be listening to no Ella Fitzgerald!" Your friends would have looked at you like you were crazy. Knowledge—not the kind of ignorance Rooney evinces here—was prized."
