Joli noir et blanc, j'aime le sujet.

He looks as if he knows what he's doing. Did he sound good?
Bill Phillips: Yes he did Chris

I can imagine the sound!
Bill Phillips: He was very good Philine
Perfect in B&W, Bill. I can almost hear him.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ginnie. He could certainly play

He must be tired to play the guitar like that. Great b&w.
Bill Phillips: Hahahaha...or very blue
Very unusual to see the guitar being played in this fashion, good shot though. (If you liked him, which I did, I saw him twice, there was an excellent Chuck Berry concert from 1972 on BBC4 last Friday night worth catching up with on iPlayer)
Bill Phillips: Usually played like this with a slide I think Brian. Yes I used to like Chuck Berry. I will have to have a look
Good one Bill, was he at the crossroads ?
Bill Phillips: But of course Frank
There used to be a performer here in Canada who played his guitar like this chap. He was blind.
Bill Phillips: It is not that uncommon and I have seen it done when using a slide

Great portrait, and music
Bill Phillips: Thanks Anne
So unusual to see someone play like this though I have before.
Bill Phillips: I have seen it when using a slide.

It looks a serious business.
Bill Phillips: The blues is not noted for laughs Chad

I always enjoyed seeing musicians set up
Bill Phillips: Yes indeed Sherri
You will be going into pubs and clubs next to photograph musicians.
Bill Phillips: Well funny you should say that as we have a band booked for our Lions charity concert at the Workies in November...
