    Lyrics by Rory Gallagher, R.I.P.

    Well..there's a body in the bay,
    The cops are taking it away.
    They said this case was closed,
    It only shows that you never know.

    So who are they gonna get,
    When the trouble's gotta stop?
    Here's my card,
    I'm the Continental Op.

    Tim Brooks came from Macon, GA. My older brother lives there and became a friend of Tim's.
    Tim (no longer with us) was a great slide guitar player. Did a lot of studio work. Gigged a good bit, made some records with his bands (first the Brothers Brooks and later, The Alien Sharecroppers). Helluva blues player but he could play in other styles too.

    This is not to say it should be forgotten, any more than the Holocaust should be forgotten, but we can't live in the past. The blues is perhaps a generic way of expressing human despair because of its structure and nature but, in the end, it's only a feeling, the expression of a feeling. And it makes good music.

    Jazz has incorporated the blues sound into its genre, and makes the music more interesting, but 'Blues For Alice' hasn't really much relationship to what Bukka White was doing in the video. There's musically a historical relationship but that's all.

    So I don't think we've 'gotten far away', it's that we've moved on - as we should have done. It's not being disrespectful of the past, it's just that life is about movement, change and progression.
    "If you ain't growin', you're dyin'" is a pretty bluesy thought.

    Most of the old masters I'd list have already been mentioned, so I'll offer this cat's take on it:

    Add some swing to the rhythm section and we're talkin'.
