Saturday Night Live Music: "Not Fade Away"

This one I was actually present for: just over three years ago, July 3rd, 2009, Joe Ely and his tight, fabulous band (including Bobby Keys!), in Fort Worth, Texas, with my old friend Scott. We were on the other side of the stage from whomever was holding the camera. Believe me, as bluesy and rocking as this sounds, in front of that stage it was even better.

I like Joe Ely, though my two favorite songs he plays were both written by someone else: "The Road Goes on Forever"

and "Whenever Kindness Fails", both written by Robert Earl Keen. I can't find Ely's version of the later, but Keen's is here:
