What do you think about the Jay Reatard documentary?

Never saw it.

Any good Arthur Lee stories?

From http://turnit-down.blogspot.com/2006/10/alicja-trout-interviewthe-river-city.html

"How was it playing with Arthur Lee? How did that opportunity come about?"

"It's the most amazing thing, I only met him twice, once for a good long practice, the sound of his voice and harmonica and even his tambourine playing warmed my shattered heart. I'd just lost a friend to drugs when Greg Roberson (ex-drummer of the Reigning Sound) called me and asked me if I wanted to come over and play some music. I declined because I was dealing with a death, and it makes any small task hard, like carrying a guitar or something. So I asked him out of curiosity what the occasion was, and when he said he was asked to put together an 'Arthur Lee new Memphis Love', I was like, I’ll be right over. I know most the Love songs like the back of my hand.""

Some guy asked me to marry him and I said ok and then he said no.

Both great but Sun is more my influence.

Go make something.
