"Shame, Shame, Shame." That was the title of blues singer Jimmy Reed's last big hit, but it could serve as a commentary on the music industry's treatment of rock's aging pioneers. Reed, composer of such classic blues tunes as "Big Boss Man" and "Take Out Some Insurance," will be honored tonight at New York's Waldorf-Astoria as one of 10 new inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Reached by phone at 1:30 in the afternoon last Sunday, Harry Dean Stanton sounded as if he were at death's door. Not bad considering that, called an hour earlier, he'd sounded like that door had been slammed in his face a few times. He was a tad groggy and hoarse as a result of spending the previous night singing, which he'll do again Saturday, this time at the Heritage Brewing Co. in Dana Point.

Cephas & Wiggins have been labeled folk-blues revivalists, but if you saw the pair invest traditional blues chestnuts with fresh life on Saturday at the Music Machine, you know that rejuvenators is a better term. Bowling Green John Cephas and Harmonica Phil Wiggins filled the dance floor with simply the former's acoustic guitar, the latter's harmonica and their combined voices on Jimmy Reed's venerable warhorse "Baby, What You Want Me To Do." Similarly, Cephas' measured vocals and nagging strumming added a dark, brooding undercurrent to the familiar Reed riffs of "Big Boss Man."
