    The Criminal Inside of Me lyrically is a variation of the old signifying monkey theme from Willie Dixon and others...which to me makes it pretty much BS. But who else had the swagger and attitude to pull this off? Special thanks to Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.

    Burnside on Burnside is one of my favourite albums, sounds rowdy and riotous, must have been a good gig

    I never saw him live, but did get to Roosevelt "Booba" Barnes once, just before he passed on; if you like RL, you'll like him.
