Jimmy Witherspoon and Tony Hicks

It's a double birthday celebration today...the Spoon's 89th and the Hicks's 61st.

Jimmy Witherspoon is one of the greatest blues singers to step foot on a stage. 'Nuf said.


What a voice...

Tony Hicks played drums with a jazz-rock trio out of Yorkshire called Back Door. They scored a record deal with Warner Bros. in the early seventies and soon found themselves touring with the likes of Deep Purple, the J. Geils Band and Emerson, Lake and Palmer.


Wow, drummer Tony Hicks plays the accordion...who knew...
