This custom portrait of mine, survived the many thousand mile, hand-delivered 2012 journey, in a cardboard box, from VT to CT, then CT to JFK(NYC), then to Los Angeles (LAX) Sunset Strip House of Blues, then back to CT/NYC(JFK); all in 4 days between Thanksgiving and Dec 05, 2012. The Blues-Rock Gypsy Road is my highway of choice! Gracias, Tres Amigos/HOB:LA for the warm reception of this portrait for your sold out gig (and DVD filming) at House of Blues Los Angeles/Sunset Strip, including the after party in the HOB:LA lounge. Be see'n Rev. BFG and The Sidewalks at BB Kings/NYC on March 30, 2013 for a VIP-MnG Flashback of sorts with this same portrait in hand (note the Moving Sidewalks Texas promo on Billy's left front jacket). Like I knew The Sidewalks would get back together, even for a one-night-stand in NYC (www.BBKINGBlues.com for tickets). All ZZ members, and The Sidewalks members, are welcome to sign this Kristina Applegate-Lutes (VT) custom painting of mine, in dedication to a loyal fan (me) since my very first MTV video ZZ-xxxperience of "LEGS" in about '83; Erik Abrahamson of CT. Have Mercy, Dem Blues 've got a'hold o'me!!
