PREACHER FOR THE BLUES

I've heard many folks talk about (nd have had the experience myself of) "going to church" while immersed in the blues. That is never more deeply felt than while listening to Lamont Gillispie play some of the best blues harmonica I ever heard. I sat down with Lamont (Joey to his many friends) recently to talk about his life with the blues. We were nearing the end of our conversation when I asked him how he wanted to be remembered by people. "First off, I want to be remembered as a good father and husband. And I want to be remembered as a preacher for the blues." When the time comes that Gillispie has blown his last breath through the harmonica, there is no doubt that this man who respects and so deeply reveres the music that defines him professionally will have a blues preacher's robe waiting for him.
