Blues Guy

Nina Simone
Uploaded from Youtube

My first conversation with Scott started with music right away.

He asked me what kind of music I listened to. I told him I like Blues. 

He asked me who I listened to.

I responded Nina Simone. I am playing "Sinnerman" right now.

I believe we connected right away through music. Scott loved all sorts of music. From our time spent together, I would say he was a Blues and Jazz guy, although that really is too limiting. He introduced me to Rockabilly, which I fell in love with. And so many bands and pieces of music, I will share with you as they surface up. Music was Scott's life and a big part of our life together. 

Of course, I can't forget the Dead. Scott loved Jerry Garcia. He played him all the time for hours and hours. I never liked the Dead or Jerry Garcia until I met Scott. After awhile, I got hooked and could listen to them for hours too.
