FACEBOOK PHOTO OF THE MONTH
Geo Jacopec took this photo of John Hammond during a
show last year in Richmond, Virginia. He says, “I’m sure
we’ve all had chill bumps during any great guitar performance, but as this shot was taken I experienced it like
never before. John was playing Robert Johnson’s ‘Come
on in My Kitchen,’ and at the point where the song breaks
down to ‘Can’t you hear the wind howl …’ I was literally paralyzed. Stunned. Never in my life had I heard and
felt such deep blues.” Jacopec reports that he was lucky
enough to meet and chat with Hammond after the show.
Thanks, Geo, for sharing this moment with our readers. For next month’s Facebook Photo of the Month
