We had a mighty fine evening at Mighty Fine Guitars in Lafayette in the cool little venue that sits behind the store. A full house was treated to music by proprietor Stevie Coyle and his musical partner Glenn Houston under the moniker The Quitters.

Then we were joined by famed photographer Jay Blakesberg who regaled us with stories about being the Grateful Dead’s official photographer and his Tom Petty picture that is currently on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine’s special on the late great rocker. Finally Jimmy Dillon closed out the night and told us about life on the road with Clarence Clemons, playing Bill Clinton’s inauguration and making a record with John Lee Hooker.
