'Bop 'til you drop..'

Happy 63rd birthday, Ryland Peter Cooder, and thanks for some great, great music, onscreen and off.

I saw Ry just once, at the Kiel Auditorium in St Louis in 1983, on a double-bill with Eric Clapton, and always hoped I'd have a chance to see him play live again. His entire career has been the epitome of creative talent and musical integrity.

Many happy returns.
