“There are cool cats and there are cool Memphis cats but no one, not
Elvis, not Jerry Lee, not even the Wolf came close to epitomizing Memphis
and cool like Jim Dickinson did. He was the Top Cat Daddy, an
inspiration, a mentor and my friend.

If you knew his music and understood his role as one of the links between
black and white culture and between blues and rock and roll, you know what
I'm talking about. If he is unfamiliar to you, now's as good time as any
to get to know him, even though he's checked out of the motel.”

This is Jim's last performance with Mudboy and the Neutrons. Jim's performances were always "for the ages" as is seen in this video. "Hitler Lives" couldn't be more timely.  Vintage Jim and his humor- he was cracking his own band up.  Notice the guitar solo by Sid's son, Steve Selvidge.  The lineup is Jimmy Crosthwait, Sid Selvidge, Jim Dickinson, Steve Selvidge, and Paul Taylor on tub bass.  Enjoy!
