    Two musicians with purple connections – ex-NPG bassist Rhonda Smith and former Time/O7 guitarist Jesse Johnson – both were part of a stellar line up of artists jamming the blues on “Brush with the Blues” at The White House on Feb 21, 2012

    Rhonda was featured with Jeff Beck on Red, White & Blue

    Jesse was part of the house band that included Booker T Jones on organ, Michael Walden on drums and Fred Wesley on trombone. While Jesse doesn’t get much play as the house guitarist, you can see him here and there on the far left. Below, you can see him in the background at the beginning while a fantastic guitar player – Gary Clark, Jr – is introduced to play Catfish Blues. You can hear Jesse on rhythm guitar, and see him in the long shots

    Funny part is Jesse posted this on his facebook page a few days later:
    Rhonda Smith it was really nice meeting you too! I’m so lame at remembering, I actually get serious overwhelmed. So many people so little space!!!!!!!!!!
    It’s great that Obama can bring together an ex-NPG with ex-Time/O7!
