Subject: RE: Gov. George Bush (Texas) & LEADBELLY??????
OK, I have more info, and thanks for the Deep Springs blicky. According to Mom and Uncle Greg, Dad tended bar at a place called The Beehive in the late 40's, working his way through U of Chicago. Many famous jazzmen played the Beehive, but I guess Leadbelly was the only one that Dad thought worth bragging about. This would have been 46-48 or so, before meeting my Mom. Anyone with more info on The Beehive? I'm going to go look it up.
