I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

  1. Sorry to hear this news. Saw where he was hospitalized a few days ago. Didn't realize how serious his condition was.

    Had breakfast with Magic Slim back in 2010. He still had the magic but he wasn't too slim. Saw him last August @ Hot August Blues over at Oregon Ridge in Baltimore County. He really cranked it out that day.

    RIP Slim.

    1. Yeah man! We can't take anything for today gone tomorrow!

      Hope your're doing well!
