    Died way too soon. I had tickets to see him at the Stone Pony December 29, 1988 and sold them. :tears::tears:
    He could not read music!

    Saw him only once, Nov '89 with Jeff Beck. Gone way too soon.



    A broken string wasn't gonna stop him.

    Texas Flood is one of those songs that has me turning up the volume to 11.
    He didn't write it. But, he made it his own.

    This summer will mark the 25th anniversary of his death.

    I saw him about every nine months between 1985 and 1989 when he came through the Chicago area.He always put on an incredible show.Such a loss of a huge talent.
