Bluer Than Blueliner at East Lake Brewery *PIC*
I went to the East Lake Brewery in Minneapolis today, and was surprised to see the name of one of their beers, which the bartender confirmed was named for Michael (and for Mpls light rail's Blue Line). Had to have one! Delicious.
Also, if you haven't checked out the 1973 WCCO video I posted earlier, here's one more nudge.
I find Michael's solo work on this video to be incredibly beautiful, and in fact is my favorite of any of his recordings. One thing I especially love about the video is that you can get a close look at MJ's incredible guitar playing. His sense of humor made me laugh too; here it seems especially dry. Oh -- also note that he and Leo Kottke play together at the beginning of the show, and also several tunes at the end. Enjoy!
