  1. Belated birthday wishes, John Paul! I hope you had a beautiful day. It was a pleasure and an honor to meet you again, last year. You have always been so genial and gracious. All the best to you, MSG, a fan forever
  2. It looks like Jimmy is wearing the same scarf in both photos.
  3. I don't think it's Tommy in the limo with Jimmy. Here's another photo of the man:
  4. You're right - I remember the mention of Brian's album now...and Jimmy mentioned it, I think, on one of his OTD posts. I love the album too.
  5. Thanks so much for writing this out, PlanetPage. I really appreciate it and I will save this wonderful story along with the photos. I like how Jimmy mentions Eric Clapton's "magnificent mastery of the blues guitar." John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton is a fantastic album - I've been listening to it for at least half my life and it's still one of my favorites.
  6. I used to think that Jimmy's first trip to Morocco was in 1975 and that Burroughs convinced him to go during the interview/conversation in Burroughs's downtown loft, when he told Jimmy about Jajouka music. But then, in a more recent interview, Robert said he took Jimmy with him to Morocco in 1972 and showed him the Atlas Mountains...perhaps he meant 1975?
  7. Back to where I left off and what a momentous OTD. PlanetPage and Aen, thank you for archiving so many of Jimmy's OTDs - without you, I would have missed all this. This particular entry about Jimmy's trip to Morocco is fantastic as my husband and I made our first and best trip to Morocco not long after Jimmy and Robert visited. We were there in that moment when it still held its 60's and 70's vibe, in those last hours when hitchking was safe and the country was still populated by interesting artists and characters, and a few decades before the Djemaa and Essouraira began to heave with tourists and touts. I'm thankful to Jimmy for sharing little slices of his travels (along with his passport stamps) - it's given me a unique glimpse into his life as a traveler and encouraged me (not just to keep traveling) but to pull out my old passport pages and scan them to keep beside my vignettes and photos.
  8. I love this photo and I love the way that he seems to be glowing with pride at the photographer, his daughter Scarlet. It's always a treat when Jimmy mentions his family.
  9. I am so curious about what Jimmy had to say about their performance as I love this band so much. I can't read the fine print....does he talk about his experience there and what he thought of the band? Did Clapton play with them that night? Thanks.
  10. What a heartbreakingly beautiful tribute to John. Thank you for archiving all of these, aen. I've missed so many of them and have much to catch up on but I'm glad I found this one, it is so very special.
  11. Jimmy looks lovely here - he seems relaxed and at ease.
  12. I think this is a well-deserved honor for the kid who left the Iron Range, influenced many through his poetic lyrics, and became an American treasure. From everything I've read and heard about the man, Bob Dylan loves this country and its people in the way that Woody Guthrie loved it. I've spent many years in impoverished countries where freedom of speech (including protest songs) is not a right and not protected and, even in those places, we encountered people who could recite many of Dylan's lyrics verbatim.
