Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Just got an email from Reg Burns, Little Joe's off-and-on manager, which I will excerpt here:

"Just got back from Ben Taub ICU... The nurse finally came and told us it was OK to see him. I told her he was a famous musician and she said that he has been telling her that."

"I let her know that I knew she wasn't able to give us any particular information about his condition, but I told her he had a gig in about 2.5 weeks at the iFest and asked if she thought he'd be able to play. She then asked when he was playing because she wanted to go see him (her way of letting me know she was pretty sure he'd be OK). She then said he was being moved to a regular room...so things are looking good, without knowing any particulars.

FYI, he is being moved to floor 5D room 61. He's much perkier than he was last night." -- John Nova Lomax

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
