Cowboy Neal performed at the King's Palace Cafe on Beale Street on Wednesday afternoon. I actually met him because I happened to choose a seat beneath the canopy, where his partner was sitting. I struck up conversation with both of them, and it continued throughout the afternoon. Ii had spent an hour beforehand at Memphis Music, a blues music store on Beale Street, and had purchased a few CD's. When I requested "The Thrill is Gone," by BB King, Cowboy Neal launched into a moving performance of this blues classic. If I had wanted to experience Beale Street and the Memphis music scene, this must have been it. I have an autographed 8x11 photo from Cowboy Neal, too. I wish him well. He made quite an impression upon me.
