Big big fan of Jon up here. Never considered him a vocalist. Seemed more like an instrument, although the words were super great.

Brilliant wordsmith, ever youthful and vibrantly energetic; that A in creative writing was well-deserved. But I only know well the great LH&R releases plus a couple of more recent solo discs, and have been idly curious for many years about the elusive Evolution of the Blues album from 1960; does that one make good use of his unique talents too?


Several years ago now, it was said that Hendricks was working on a book of his lyrics, as so many, many of them are unavailable to the public. Do you know if that's still happening?

That's a great interview, very insightful on the artist.
