Sleepy Sunday, Vol. 13

Slowly but surely, we’re getting out the word about Sleepy LaBeef, the Human Jukebox, national treasure.

My old pal Meat wrote last week to commiserate about missing Sleepy live at the Krypto Music Lounge in Rockford, Ill. Sleepy played there the night after I saw him here in Green Bay.

Not only did Meat miss Sleepy, but Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick joined Sleepy for a set. Meat’s friends, who paid a mere $5 cover, said “it was pretty wonderful.” I would imagine so.

Wonder whether they paid tribute to the ailing Bo Diddley by covering one of his tunes.
