I grew up 10 miles south of Greenville Mississippi, it ain't no town and it ain't no city. Just outside of Wayside, Ms my father had a farm that we affectionately referred to as "Po' Baby", 240 acres of the sorriest land that the Lord ever created, buck-shot, Delta gumbo.
Now here I am 48 years later. I took quite a few years off from playing to raise my son. Now that he can drive me around, I'm back at it again. Right now I'm working with Duff Dorrough (Formerly with The Tangents) George Allen (Played with Sassy Jones - Bass Player Extraordinare) and Morson "Mo" Emerson (Played with Bobby Rush) - Stan Street - Harp & Sax. George, Mo, Stan and I are also doing a 4-piece (Chick French & The Ticklers) and I'm doing a few solo acoustic gigs.

Yep, just started back after taking some years off to raise my boy. My most memoriable times were spent playing with Frank Frost and Sam Carr. They taught me more about what not to play than anyone I've ever worked with.
