Rufus gets the Groove

Rufus Crawford and yours truly

Rufus Crawford, former Hamilton Tiger Cat All Star, played guitar in the off season. He had a beautiful George Benson model guitar. We would get together to jam and learn every so often. Rufus's style was jazzy and R&B influenced. We never talked football, although I am a great Tiger Cat fan, it was always the latest guitar player either of us had heard, or a cool band that we had seen. I saw Rufus a while back and he is doing well, and in a number of nationally syndicated commercials. I'm playing a red Telecaster though you can't see it well.
