Elvin Bishop: The Bourbon Street Irregulars

Jim Esposito, unpublished, April 1975

2009 note: CREEM flew me up to New Orleans to write a story on Elvin Bishop. Rejected this. Editor told me: "You didn't say why Elvin Bishop's such a legendary guitar player. You just talked about how he jammed all night." Swear to God.
