Anything you dream is fiction,
and anything you accomplish is science,
the whole history of mankind is nothing but science fiction.

Goodbye Pinetop

Pinetop Perkins, the blues piano player who backed the Muddy Waters Band, died at the age of 97.

Pinatop often played near here at the Turning Point Cafe in Piermont, where I saw him.

He was a heavy drinker and smoker and lived to be 97, anyway.
