He’s Been Pecked by the Right Hen

Good Lord, how many times am I going to watch Martin Scorsese’s blues documentary?  I can’t get enough.  Even if you’re not a fan of the music, you must watch the “Road to Memphis” installment of the series.  It’s all about B.B. King, Beale Street, and the birth of black Southern radio.  Best of all, it introduced me to blues man Bobby Rush, who still travels the chitlin’ circuit in a broke-down old bus, hitting three hundred plus venues a year yet always making it home in time for church on Sunday.  I think the clip above tells you all you need to know about Bobby.  I can appreciate a man who knows when he’s been pecked by the right hen, and I’m sure you can, too.
