Dick Waterman book
- Over on the John Fahey list there has been some discussion of the new Dick Waterman book of photography. The general consensus is that the text is alright but the photography of blues musicians is spectacular. There's a cool picture of Fahey with Son House. This will definitely be on the Christmas list. Some of the pictures can be seen here.

- Dick was where when it happened...and he made a lot of it hapepened. Good
hat he had the eye to get those shots.
It was good to see him made use of on the PBS/Scorsese Blues series, too.
Some people know--others don't!--that he was Bonnie Raitt's boyfriend back
when....considerably back when...
He also helped reintroduce a lot of older blues players to the public, and was
known to be pretty fair about it.
