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!

Remembering Captain Luke


Early this morning, May 12th, blues legend and musical pioneer Luther "Captain Luke" Mayer passed away at age 87.

In the month since his health began declining, he was so happy to receive an outpouring of love and support from so many of you. He very much appreciated the calls, cards and well-wishes; he recently told us all the love from fans made him truly realize how much his music has meant to people.

We've posted a collection of photos on our blog here, and we invite you to comment and share your memories of Captain Luke. He will be sorely missed.
