Last week we brought the never ending Mavis Staples tour back to life after a short recess. Fall is now packed full, including US dates with Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Robert Cray and our buddy Jake La Botz! Yeah, Jake! There's also a European run that includes London's Royal Albert Hall with the Tedeschi/Trucks Band. RHB shows will be sparse until after the new year.

Willie G. Moseley wrote this story about Rick for the latest VG magazine. Also thanks to Aigars Lapsa for the photo (sorry, couldn't figure out how to spin it upright) from Cazorla, Spain that was taken when RHB played in a bullring at 3 am, under full moon, for a crowd of rabid Spaniards. No wonder the whole town seemed to be asleep all afternoon. Love Spain.
Not sure how this happened, but Cruel Sunrise is the # 1 CD on BB King's Bluesville (Sirius/XM radio)! Thanks to Bill Wax for spinning the record so enthusiastically. And thanks Edward Spinelli for the photos.
