“R.L. Burnside gave me my break and took me on the road in 1997, teaching me the ropes and his repertoire,” guitarist Luther Dickinson told Rolling Stone. “Playing music and hanging out with R.L. and his band, Kenny Brown and Cedric Burnside, was a life-changing experience and gave me a wealth of memories: conversations, jokes and songs that have still inspire me and teach me.”The new album features guest appearances from Oteil Burbridge (bass, Dead & Company), Grahame Lesh (guitar, Midnight North, The Terrapin Family Band), Sharisse Norman (vocals), Dominic Davis (bass, Jack White), and singer/fife player Shardé Thomas.

The West Java Religious Affairs Office has confirmed that the 90 umrah (minor haj) pilgrims who left for Saudi Arabia on Feb. 27 from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport had safely returned to Indonesia.”The latest information we’ve received is that the 90 pilgrims had indeed departed [for Saudi Arabia], but they have [since] returned,” the office’s haj and umrah head, Ajam Mustajam, told The Jakarta Post by phone on Thursday, seven days after the pilgrims were reported as “missing”.The 90 Indonesians had departed on umrah one day before Saudi Arabia announced a temporary ban on all umrah pilgrims in a measure to “limit the spread of the coronavirus epidemic and prevent its access to the Two Holy Mosques”, as quoted in TIME.On Feb. 28, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia listed Indonesia as one of the countries whose citizens were barred from visiting the holy cities of Mecca and Medina as part of its prevention measures.The decision left thousands of Indonesians stranded – some already en route to Saudi Arabia and others who had already checked in at airports around the country.Ajam said that 790 umrah pilgrims from West Java were initially scheduled to depart on Feb. 27. When he was contacted again on March 3, however, Ajam said that only 700 had returned to the country and claimed not to know the whereabouts of the other 90 pilgrims.Ajam clarified on March 5 that the 90 Indonesians had used the services of a travel agency in West Java, and were not part of the official group of pilgrims from the province.“It is not because of an error in the system,” he stressed, referring to the integrated umrah and haj computerized system that maintains records on all pilgrims traveling on the government-sponsored program.“Their whereabouts were being tracked, but the regional office received the information late,” he said.Ajam said that the office was now focusing on serving people who needed the required haj documents and extending or issuing new for umrah and haj permits at the 187 umrah and haj travel agencies in the province.

Tony Adams claims Arsenal’s players are ‘ready’ to be beaten (Premier League Productions)Tony Adams has slammed the mentality of Arsenal’s players following their defeat to Brighton and believes Freddie Ljungberg’s men look ‘ready’ to suffer poor results as soon as a game begins.The Gunners slumped to a 2-1 loss at home to Brighton on Thursday evening while the players were booed off the pitch by their own fans at the Emirates Stadium after the final whistle.In a woeful opening 45 minutes for Arsenal, Brighton took the lead through Adam Webster. The Gunners equalised through Alexandre Lacazette during a positive spell in the second half but Brighton scored the winner with 10 minutes remaining via Neal Maupay.AdvertisementAdvertisementAnd Adams, who spent 14 years as Arsenal’s captain, believes a lack of leaders inside the current dressing room is to blame for the club’s poor run of form.ADVERTISEMENT‘I think they are looking after themselves a little bit too much,’ Adams told Premier League Productions. SLUMP Arsenal are winless in nine games in all competitions – their worst streak since a run of 10 matches in March 1977. Arsenal’s dressing room is lightweight, according to Tony Adams (Getty Images)‘They need brave people on and off the pitch.‘You need a bit of honesty here, and a coach to go ‘hold on a minute, come on guys’. You need to be called out. And I don’t think a lot of that has been going on.‘The coaches put on lovely sessions for the team and everything goes round and round until you go ‘actually guys, you’re the ones on the pitch, you’ve got to make the decisions and stand up and be counted’.‘There are not too many of those guys out there. They are all kind of looking after themselves. ‘They are sitting there waiting for things to happen instead of going and making it happen.‘They are ready for it to go wrong.‘When you go into a football pitch expecting back things to happen they usually do.
