Overheard at Table 4: Ledbelly

John Steppenwolf:  I'll make it quick.  My guy is Ledbelly.  Huddie Ledbetter.  Guy who could take bullets in the stomach and keep on beatin' up the guys who shot 'im.  The guy who broke out of more prisons than the Apostles Paul and Peter, combined.  The guy who could play a 12-string guitar like he had one finger for each string, and wrote songs that inspired every young kid who picked up a guitar in the second half of the 20th Century.

And if you want more, all I gotta say is check him out online, or just go old school and buy a CD.
