Farewell, Pinetop

It’s another sad, sad day in the blues music world with the passing yesterday of a greatly admired and important bluesman, the 97-year-young piano-pounding, boogie woogieing Joe Willie “Pinetop” Perkins.

We’re planning a special tribute to Perkins in the coming days, but in the meantime, here’s a nice obituary on the blues piano legend from the Los Angeles Times.
