People seemed astonished by us. He never even knew his father was a musician. From then on, the elder Ferguson began showing up at Thunderbirds gigs, Big Storm - Cool John Ferguson - With These Hands (CD. Johnny Winter and ZZ Top sent their limos for him to attend concerts. After I left the T-Birds, I never heard from him again. The T-Birds took it back 20 years. Jimmie Vaughan exorcised all the rock-guitar innovations— as if Beck, Hendrix, Clapton, Winter, and Bloomfield never existed— and threw it back to a long-abandoned, spare, Big Storm - Cool John Ferguson - With These Hands (CD Chicago groove, more authentic than early Rolling Stones.
Countless guitarists took heed. Ferguson leveled a lawsuit at the T-Birds claiming owed money, refused to settle, and was trounced in court. For many years, there was acrimony and scorched earth. Maybe he got so hip, he just hipped himself right off the planet. Amazing photos, amazing band. Completely authentic and bad ass in a way bands these days can never be. It was bands like them, The Paladins, X, and The Blasters that shaped and influenced my whole world from the music I listened to, the way I dressed and the way I combed my hair.
Thunderbirds rule! Wonderful pictorial and article. Not mentioning Fran Christina, the T Birds drummer is a mortal sin. He was amazing. Great band, had a slab of vinyl around that had a track called Pocket Rocket. Loved that track, Kim Wilson is a legend!
I made the drive over the pass from Missoula to see the T-Birds, not Clapton. And the T-Birds blew Clapton out of the water. The Girls Go Wild album was so important to me back then. Wore it out. Superb article JP, a new angle on a perpetually cool and influential band. Off stage they were normal guys, Jimmie was warm, affable and genuine, gave me the contact in Austin to order my boots from, but I mostly remember him telling me after the last gig that he was super stoked his brother was finally clean and they were recording together.
However long it was after that, on the way to a straight day gig in the morning, the dj came on the car radio to announce that Stevie Ray Vaughan had died in a tragic accident. I pulled over to the side of the highway and wept. Vale S. V and Mr Ferguson, long live the blues. I ran into the great JV at a used guitar store this summer. I stood beside him and we gazed at used gold Strat.
Biggest argument was whether Mike Buck or Fran Christina was better between the sticks! Dear God, where should I begin, I have so many beautiful memories.
I set out to interview them, and found all of them to be incredibly sympathetic. Sure enough, months later I heard him, and with the release of Texas Flood I understood. I will however never forget their modesty in this respect. Now Kim Wilson is not known to be a modest guy, but when they all started to talk about Stevie Ray in an interview that essentially was about them, I was baffled, but impressed with their lack of ego.
Great place! The love music was great and it made for a great atmosphere. I love BBQ and ribs and this place made them both very well and they had good drinks. Our server was efficient and attentive. It was an overall great place with a nice down home feel. During the blues jam session its like a little community, everyone knows everyone and they are not afraid to introduce themselves!
I went for my first time and got introduced to almost everyone. The blues jam was amazing, i had so much fun just sipping on a beer and listening to the musicians.
