I've been bragging to everyone that this was the tenth year we've played the Stone Face on New Year's but Darin tells me that this was actually the 12th New Year's Eve in a row that the Tails from the Crypt played at the Stone Face. Time flies.
Billy Folchi, an old blues buddy that moved to France was in town and he stopped by to tell us about his band, "Billy Folchi and the Space Rockets". Billy has been living large in Europe for the last three years, playing all over France with his trio. He sat in for the last few tunes of the night, including a smoldering version of "Texas Flood". It was great to see Billy again, too bad he's going back to Europe so soon.

I took these photos from onstage during the intro to "Hip Shake", our tribute to John Lee Hooker. Check out drummer Jon Edwards, that man loves to play the blues.
2005 turned out to be an excellent year for the P.Tails. The addition of Joe and Jon to the line up has strengthened the band in every way. The Memphis P.Tails plan to build on those strengths in 2006.
