Grease Is The Word

Bonnie Raitt is happy to have stood the test of time. She’s also at Acura, and even from a great distance I can spot her shocking red hair. She brings plenty of locals to the stage, playing “A Real Good Thing’s About To Come To An End,” with Jon Cleary scorching the piano, followed by an old Sippie Wallace tune from the 20s, “Woman Be Wise” with Glen David Andrews on trombone and his cousin James Andrews on trumpet. More locals add an extra accompaniment, the beer vendors clanging cowbells for every person tipping the jar. Even onstage, it was hot in the afternoon sunshine, prompting Raitt to give the Fest’s best advice yet: “Get into that grease, honey.” She then launched into the lusty “Something To Talk About,” which I sang all the way to the next act.

Congratulations to Blues Hall of Famer Bonnie Raitt who was honored at last night's GRAMMYs with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

“To be validated by my peers… it’s a very big celebration and I’m very grateful.” On being an inspiration and influence to other musicians, like Sheryl Crow who was inspired to play guitar after hearing Raitt play for the first time, she says “it’s hard for me to imagine because I still feel like I’m just starting out. It’s been 50 years, but you know people have been really kind. So many more women are playing lead guitar - Prince’s band, Beyonce’s band, all the late-night bands who have women musicians. It’s fantastic.”
