Mike Finnigan, who does Mike’s Blog Round Up at Crooks and Liars is also a musician who tours constantly playing keyboards for the likes of Joe Cocker, Bonnie Raitt, and Crosby Stills and Nash. He is a superb blues singer too and just opened his online store. Just a few items now, with many more coming. He’s been recording since the 60’s.
Some history. Mike had a email list called Crooks and Liars. John Amato asked him if he could use the name when he started his blog and Mike said sure. I’ve known both of them since way before blogging and played a minor role in helping John start C&L.
