Subject: RE: 2021 Obit: Ellen McIlwaine
While I note McIlwaine's remark about opening for guitarists,
I remember very well for whom McIlwaine was opening,
the one time I saw her perform the opening set:

Lily Tomlin doing a one-woman show.

And yes,
McIlwaine tore the roof off the place.

It would be nice to think of her
getting a rousing welcome on the other side
from those who were important to her
and whom she lost, like Hendrix.
