My cousin Frank is ill... very ill. He's been dealing with health issues for several years, but his incredibly optimistic spirit and his indefatigable energy made it easy to forget that he had a number of serious issues confronting him.
Tonight Frank is struggling in a battle that I don't think he can win, and I'm very sad. But Frank wouldn't want people to be sad; he spent his life making people happy, both with his charisma and his musical ability. So I'd like to give Frank a chance to make people happy once again with a nice bluesy rendition of "Jambalaya" (Frank's the singer and lead guitarist; while blues was his passion, he loved to take songs that weren't particularly bluesy and rework 'em into his style, as he does here). This is one of several clips he has on YouTube; look for "Frankie Moates" if you'd like to see more.
