Boy's Night Out in Austin...

Made an over night trip with old bud Larry to Austin to catch Junior Brown, western wild man of a special made guitar you see here called the "guit-steel" at the Continental Club. Also enjoyed second act Haybale with Redd Volkart on guitar. We stopped by Ali's apartment and Morgan was in town so he also attended.

Just when you think you are kind of putting something together on guitar you go see a guy like this and makes you feel like you should just quit.

The unapologetic tourist, Larry at the SRV statue on the shores of Town Lake. Larry has been collecting autographs on a small Tweed Fender amp. He has Gatemouth Brown's, Rick Derringer and now he got Junior Brown to sign it. We made a few music stores leaving town, stopping by to chat with Charlie Hennig at Heart of Texas Music where SRV bought his iconic "#1" guitar and a shopping place for many music stars. I bought some mando strings from Charlie, but for the record more interesting gear to me at Austin Vintage guitar and South Austin Music.
