Friday Blues Blogging

The Iceman hisself, Master of the Telecaster, Albert Collins, bluesing out on his seminal hit "Frosty." I was lucky to catch Albert in San Francisco in the late '80s at the Great American Music Hall. On this tune, just like in this vid, he went for a stroll. Except at the show I as at, he kept on strolling right into the lobby, then through the lobby doors out onto the street, which was a busy one, to the surprised delight of passers by. Then an SF city bus pulled up to the corner and opened its door. Albert got in line, still jamming, and got on the bus. The bus driver was cracking up, and took him for a bit of a spin down the street, as far as Albert's guitar chord permitted. (This was in the pre-wireless days.)
