Don a helmet for all the names this blues guy drops, Dylan, Muddy Waters, The Band, Paul Butterfield, Jorma, Hendrix, Jimmy Reed, John Sebastian, Howlin' Wolf … His story is awesome and his enthusiasm has never flagged. A great interview! From 29:40
Do talk back

Hammond opened for one of my earliest rock concert experiences in the gym at SUNY Stoneybrook. It was Hammond, Rev. Gary Davis and closing was Janis Joplin and Big Brother, all names he mentions in the interview. I'll be honest and admit Hammond's basic acoustic blues was not my cup of tea but still, seeing him back then was pretty cool.
