This Skelly loves music and incorporates his Sitar into Otis Redding lyrics. Sittin’ On The Dock of the Bay… #India #morbidlyadorable #sitar



Otis Redding’s famous  ballad was written in a boat (not on the dock) just before he died and was published posthumously.  I have no intention of croaking any time soon, and what I’m writing here On Zeee Beeech in S-W France, will be published prehumously.  141 more words

Interview: Booker T. Jones

The impact that Booker T. Jones has had over modern popular music as musician, songwriter, arranger and producer would be hard to overstate. At 16 years old he played on the first hit for a nascent recording label called Satellite in Memphis, Tennessee, and would become the leader of the house band there as the label changed its name to Stax Records in 1961. 1,620 more words
