Cool Fool, Blues Rockin' The Hammer

a lifetime spent living the Blues in Hamilton (The Hammer), Canada


with one comment

Kerry Schooley for getting the ball rolling to turn the blog I’d started, Cool Fool: Blues Rockin’ In the Hammer into a book and for his sense of beat style that he was able to infuse my words with and his considerable expertise and knowledge of how a book should work and how it should look.

Russell Carter for sharing with me his memories and photos of the early days playing Blues and Soul in Hamilton with his bands “The Bishops” and “The Master Hand.”

Patti Stirling for the opportunity and space to actually put the book together and for her photos from the 1980s and 1990s.

Julie Boden, Gary Deans, Sue Freestone and Lynn MacIntyre for sharing their memories and photos.

Don’t Bother Knockin’…this town is rockin’, Patti Meyer, Gary Lee and Buffalo Sounds Press for the inside skinny on just what is the Buffalo Shuffle and the heads up on the connection between musicians from Hamilton and Buffalo going back to the late 1950s. for it’s great encyclopaedia of Canadian musicians and bands.

All the cats and kittens I played with along the way. Without you there is no memoir.
