Happy Birthday to Jack Casady who turned 68 a few weeks ago. Casady and Jorma Kaukonen paid tribute to The Band's Levon Helm at the 8th annual Wanee Music Festival at the Spirit of Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida last weekend performing "I Am the Light of the World" and "99 Year Blues" in Levon's honor. We wish we could have been there.

Bass players will dig this short lesson from Jack with backing from Jorma. The Epiphone Jack Casady Signature bass is now an open secret among players in every genre as the instrument for serious bass players. It's all right for Paul McCartney's band so what are you waiting for? Would you like it in Metallic Gold or Ebony?
