Jae,

Heart-felt (and other places) blues. Reminds me of the time a few years
back when I was the MC hosting on-stage at The Rhythm & Roots Festival in
RI when my first gout attack happened. Oy! I thought someone had snuck up
and smashed my right foot with a sledge hammer.

Sung to the tune of "You Got To Move"?
