Westside Andy & Mel Ford Band performing “Alley Cat.” Last night I saw my friend, “Westside Andy” Linderman at the Crystal Corner Bar in Madison WI. Andy has shared the stage with the likes of James Cotton, Luther Allison, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, Charlie Musselwhite, Doobie Brothers, Richie Havens, Muddy Waters, Gary Primich, Jimmy Johnson, Tab Benoit and Hubert Sumlin. The man has some chops! Here’s a great recording from a few years back. The band features Andy on harmonica, Mel Ford on vocals & guitar, Tony Menzer on bass and Jimmy Voegeli on keyboards.
