Memphis lost another great music legend last night, Mr. Teenie Hodges. Known as the amazing guitarist for the Hi Rhythm Section, he co-write hits like "Love and Happiness" and "Take Me to the River" with Al Green. A true Memphis treasure who was always willing to share his history with up-and-coming Memphis Musicians and always had a smile on his face! RIP Teenie! You will be greatly missed!
One of my favorite things to do on the weekend is to go hear legendary bluesman Earl The Pearl Banks at the local bar Murphy's! Teenie would often sit in with Earl and his brother, Hi-Rhythm Section bassist, Leroy Flick Hodges (both shown below). So very special!
