Tomorrow (May 20), Tomcat Courtney a 79-year-old Texas born bluesman is releasing his debut album, Downsville Blues, and while old age has taken its toll, Courtney isnt slowing down anytime soon.
Courtney says, When youre old, you got problems Im a diabetic and I got arthritis. I aint walking or running, but Im still percolating!
Courtney is planning to take his tunes on tour, and despite the physical toll, you wont catch him lying down on the job.
He says, After I get off stage, I lay down because Im worn out. But I hide that. I walk off like Im feeling good!
And aside from the minor aches and pains, age is just a number to Courtney.
He says, People always ask how Im still playing. I tell them, That aint all Ive been doing!
