My friend Katie Webster 1 of 2
jongee March 21, 06
I met Katie when I was managing a bank. She came in to cash open an account with an Alligator records check. She opened the account in the name of Katheryn Thorne but the check said Katie Webster. As we were opeing the account I realized who she was and said, "two fisted mama" and Katie with a big smile said, "that's me honey". We spent the next half hour talking about the blues. One of my biggest thrills was the last time I saw her perform, at a Benefit show at Rockefellers in Houston. She dedicated Two Fisted Mama to "my friend and banker, John and his lovely wife Ramona. Katies was one of a kind and I feel honored to have been her friend. Miss you Katie.
