RIP Pinetop

It is with great sadness that we learned today of the death of Pinetop Perkins. He was chosen for the cover of the book because he so perfectly captured the spirit of the entire project… “The blues makes me feel pretty good. It always keeps two dollars in my hand. I praise to the Lord all the time, ‘please forgive me for it,’ cause I know nothing else to do.”

We've been remiss... acknowledging the passing of one of our featured artists, Norton Buffalo. The pending release of a new album by the Steve Miller Band that includes some of Norton's last work reminds us of the thirty year working relationship of two giants in the music business. As someone said shortly after his death in late 2009, "Norton's arrival in heaven means another angel brought a harp"! When he was told by a record executive that he might need to have a guitar as the 'lead instrument' on his album he replied, "What's so special about a guitar? I can rip the snot out of just about anything with a harmonica"!

His portrait is wonderful and as you can see in the video with Roy Rogers, the man could play that thang!! He is missed by musicians and those who loved his music.
