    Sad news. I was able to see him live twice. He was a true bluesman.

    I didn't "get into" him till later on (about 1971), a master of the blues.

    Did you go? It turns out I could have gone, was pretty close but was involved in traditional folk music so wasn't so interested in rock. I was studying country blues ATT with my mentor Backwards Sam Firk, AKA Micheal A Stewart. He is also RIP. He helped rediscover Mississippi John Hurt with his buddy Tom Hoskins AKA Fang. Firk played and recorded with Stephan Michealson, AKA Delta X.
