Ike Turner with Matt “Guitar” Murphy, Scotty Moore and Joe Louis Walker at Central Park’s SummerStage in New York on July 26, 1997.
Murphy, famous as part of the Blues Brothers band, played in the Blue Flames with Turner in 1952, while Moore played with Elvis Presley’s group.
Joe Louis Walker: “He [Ike] was a great musician and musical visionary. We toured England, France, Germany and the USA culminating in our Central Park USA show, where we brought Scotty Moore and Matt Murphy. Learned quite a bit from them all. They were all originators and anyone playing roots style music owes them a debt of gratitude. Thank you.”
Some gardeners have to amend their soil to achieve hydrangeas with this powder blue color. I’m lucky that the acidic soil under the junipers does the job. All of them survived the winter unscathed except for two which are hanging on for dear life.
