Booker T. Jones: Booker T. and the MGs

I listened to an interview on NPR with Booker T. Jones. He was part of the staff band on Stacks Records out of Memphis. He was present at the discoveries of both Otis Redding and Bill Withers. He also worked with Rita Coolidge. I found this picture of when I spent a day hanging out with Rita Coolidge as a kiddie. Enjoy. It's hard work to be this cool. No really. Her drummer is to my left.

By the way, not to short booker t. he's just astoundingly talented. there's so many great tracks that came from him. not to mention he played maybe a zillion instruments.
