Hubert Sumlin passed today. It's sad how many of the greats are passing away. It's the cycle of life, but it's still sad. Play a good blues for him tonight.

I saw Hubert play every year at the King Biscuit Festival for the last ten years or so. I am sorry to see him guy. He was certainly one of the giant of the electric blues guitar.

I was happy to catch him in fort Lauderdale 3-4 years ago with Bob Margolin. He was playing a gold top Les Paul. He didn't play much, but what he did was pure and sweet. RIP

Sad another one bites the dust. But he was very special.
I have memorry of seeing him 3 times, once at the colonial tavern on Yonge stree, once at the 1815 club on roosevelt Rd, and once at the Flying Fox at 69th and Halsted.

Tuesday night I attended a memorial jam for Hubert where all the door charge went to a Blues Foundation that assists needy (retired?) blues artists. Had a good time, heard some wonderful sounds from Bob Margolin, Robert Stroger, Eddie Shaw, Taildragger, Scott Dirks, and many others, most I did not catch their names. It was at Fitzgerald's on Roosevelt Rd. It was so crowded I could not see was anybody I know there too. I did get a chance to holler at Scott Dirks that was nice.
It was nice to see so many people gathered to honor Hubert Sumlin.

RIP Hubert,

On a personal note I met Hubert at a concert my sister's band was playing in Manteo N.C. He was there with Matt Walsh and Bob Margolin. It was a great night of the blues. Afterward I got to shake the mans hand and chat for just a second. He was a very humble man, and my sister adored him. I will always be grateful for the meeting.

It wasn't until later I found out just how prolific his career was. I mean he had played with damn near everybody. He was an original guitar player, I am honored to have met him.

Play on.....
