OT: Jimmy Johnson 75th b'day bash

Jimmy Johnson, one of the original "Swampers," and who also engineered the three Stones tracks off Sticky Fingers recorded here in Muscle Shoals (Brown Sugar, Wild Horses, You Gotta Move) will be having his 75th birthday-bash concert here in the Shoals at the Shoals Theater in Florence, AL, Feb. 19th.

I've got two extra tickets if one of you IORR'ers can make it here they are yours no charge (well you can buy me a beer in the lobby!)

These 75th birthday bashes are becoming quite the thing.. So far we've had b'days for Donnie Fritts, Spooner Oldham, and David Hood, all with some amazing guest musicians showing up (Kris Kristofferson, John Paul White, Blind Boys of Alabama, William Bell etc)

Even if someone else grabs the tickets you may want to check this out if you're in the area.. Give me a shout and I'll show you around including where the Stones stayed while here (it's a Taco Bell now!)

Still have a couple extra tickets for this.. If one of you local iorr-ers can make it, stick around a few days until 23rd for this as well:

I believe Jimmy was in the scene in Gimme Shelter where they are in the studio listening to Wild Horses?

Yes.. I've seen a few well-known pics of the gang with Jimmy Johnson while they were recording there, but I just saw one of Bill Wyman I hadn't seen before (hanging in Ye Old General Store in downtown Florence, AL). It's a shot with Bill full on facing camera, looks to be in the Jackson Hwy studio.. Also, small correction to the Booth book, though they recorded at Muscle Shoals Sound in Sheffield, the Holiday Inn the group stayed at was actually across the river in Florence.. Stanley is to be forgiven due to the fog they were all in smiling smiley .. There is a plaque there now, and a Taco Bell
