Welcome to Maya's World of Music!

"Mick sometimes had the use of his parents Triumph Herald at the weekend, and i remember we went to Manchester to see a big blues show, and there's Sonny Terry and there's Brownie McGhee, and John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters. He was the one we wanted to see particularly, but also we wanted to see John Lee. There were others like Memphis Slim. It was a whole revue that was going through Europe. And Muddy came on, acoustic guitar, Mississippi Delta stuff, and played a magnificent half an hour..."/Keith Richards

As always, when i visit N.Y., i went to the best book shop in the world: Strand Books.(They should really give me free books for all the publicity i give them...). First, second hand books, in great shape, for a great price. I always go first to the music section. I have the standrad appreciation for Keith Richards, like any respectable music lover, but not more then that and i wasn't planning to buy a book about him. But, you know what they say: Best things happen spontaneously!!! A very cute worker of the store recommended on the autobiography of Keith and said that it kicks ass!!

He was right like he was cute(don't be jeallous) and the book kicks ass. I'm a book worm when it comes to books about artists, bands etc. My fevorite part is when they describe how and when they discovered music for the first time. Or, when and how they discovered their own inspiration and how it totally blew them away and changed their lives forever. There's just no turning back after you crossed that point. "Life"-By Keith is a great book about a great man. To read his description on how he learnd to play guitar, about the first time he listened to blues music and what an influence it had on him-it gives me goose bumps.

Our Wednesady night special musical journey, has changed to Monday nights-same time, same place: 21-23pm Jerusalem time, RFN Radio.
