    I don't know if many on this board will recognize the name of Sam Andrew or Big Brother and the Holding Company. But to me it was yesterday and that's Sam Andrew on the lead guitar:


    Somehow I missed Andrew's obituary last month. I should have seen it in the San Francisco Chronicle, or Rolling Stone, or Billboard, but I didn't. There's a piece on the Big Brother and the Holding Company website with links to Andrew's writings at the bottom.

    Anyway, here's another one. Listen to the guitar:

    I don't exactly remember when I first heard Big Brother and the Holding Company, but it was electricfying. Janis took a little piece of my heart when she die. RIP Sam Andrews.

    You know you got it if it makes you feel good,
    Oh, yes indeed.

    Thanks, p. I did not know the name of the lead guitarist, but do now. BB+HC are long time favorites. Out way too soon.
