In 1969, the Dade County Sheriff's Office issued an arrest warrant for Doors' lead singer Jim Morrison. He was charged with a single felony count and three misdemeanors for his stage antics at a Miami concert a few days earlier. When Morrison first got word of the charges for lewd and lascivious behavior, indecent exposure, profanity, and drunkenness, he thought it was a practical joke.

Ernest Henry,74, takes in the sounds of blues guitarist Joey Gilmore at the Bradfordville Blues Club outside of Tallahassee in the early morning  hours of Sunday, March 31, 2013. Henry's family has lived near the club for decades and he is known as a regular. Above him hang tabletops depicting musicians who have played at the club.   I spent two really late nights at the Bradfordville Blues Club in the spring. A writer and I had been trying to do a story on the place for about five years. Amongst bluesmen the club is legendary so I wanted to make images that captured the sense of history. The club has a history of painting tabletops with the faces of people who have played there and then hanging them on the wall. When I saw Mr. Henry sitting beneath them, lost in the music, at about 2 a.m. on my second night there, I knew I had found the picture I was looking for.
