Which would lead some people to think about just possibly carrying two, and hiring a kid or just asking some happy stage crew member to tune whichever one was not being used. But he isn't anybody's some person-- so he keeps taking one, and cranking it out of tune, and then borrowing someone else's. Ah well-- I guess that's why we love him? (In his relative youth he is said to have snatched one out of the hands of Howlin' Wolf and had to apologize on stage!) But in his old age he's going to start being known as Mr. Fender!
Thanks to Ida May for the picture from last night at B. B. King's. Wish she was there!
