PONTIACThe Rolling Stones made no local appearance during their two-day gig in
Pontiac’s Silverdome, but one member of their entourage took advantage of the
opportunity to pick up some musical advice from famed blues singer Sippie
Wallace of Detroit and U-M music professor Jim Dapogny Tuesday.
Dapogny, an expert on blues and jazz, has been playing piano for Sippie in many
of her appearances lately.
Pianist Ian Stewart, touring with the Stones, called Sippie’s manager and asked
to meet the pair and hear some of their recent work. The meeting turned into a
three-hour jam session, Dapogny said.
“He listened to some of our tapes, and Sippie played and sang for him,” said
Dapogny. “Then he asked me to show him some piano licks he’d heard on the
tapes, and we traded ideas back and forth.”
