Last Minute Gig

I got a call from the manager of our local blues bar in Evanston, Illinois. This weekend is the second anniversary celebration of Bill's Blues Bar; the headliner is the world-famous Eddy "The Chief" Clearwater. Well, Eddy is sick and can't make it. I have been asked to front Eddy's band for a few numbers this evening. Bill is calling around trying to find other front men/women to sit in at the last minute. This is not good - the crowd will be expecting the Chief and they are going to get a motley crew of nobodies.

This will be an edgy evening. I hope that it all works out.

I hope there is nothing seriously wrong with The Chief. He's a sweetheart of a guy.

I think the Chief will be fine - laid low by a virus. He has been admitted to a hospital, but that might be due to his age (he is over 70 now).

Yer Pal,
