Elmore James

Elmore James:

One of the pieces Bill Kirchen does below is a riff from an old Elmore James piece called "Dust My Broom." I don't think we've looked at James before here at the Hall, but I'm sure you all know the piece.

Elmore James was called "King of the Slide Guitar" for a reason. He was also a veteran of the US Navy, and was there present at the invasion of Guam.

A fighting man and a true artist -- just the kind of man we respect here at the Hall.
