RIP Pinetop Perkins

You were a beloved, soulful musician. You will be missed.

This was taken in 2006 at Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale, Mississippi when I played with Delaney Bramlett.  I had the honor of meeting him again at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco just a year ago, when Jemimah Puddleduck opened for the Perfect Age of Rock n Roll Blues Band (with Pinetop, Hubert Sumlin, Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, “Steady Rollin’ ” Bob Margolin, and other blues greats).
