I'm ticked off with myself that I never saw him live. Had plenty of opportunity too, living as I did in Chicago for over a decade ...

Sat next to him on a flight years ago from Huntsville AL to Dallas. I had no idea who he was while we chatted until the end of the flight when he got his briefcase down, I saw his name on the tag and then the penny dropped. Really nice bloke.

That vibrato... once seen and heard never forgotten. The last of the Three Kings Of Blues, he was quite an inspiration.

He was one of the greatest blues musicians ever.  Sad loss.  However his music lives on forever.
