I saw Charley Musselwhite perform at the Beacon in NYC some years ago. He was great!
  8:15pm Lothianman:

That was some great Charlie. RIP Otis
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm WillCrete:

Just happened to be on south Michigan Ave in front of the former Chess Studios this weekend when I heard about Rush's passing. Glad to hear his playing tonight. Big up Otis forever, playing the toughest and strongest six string sound in the music. Thanks for doing this tribute.
Avatar 8:18pm On the Yazoo:

The King Biscuit Blues Fest is happening this weekend.. well it starts Wednesday night. If anyone is near Helena Arkansas check it out. I'm only an hour and a half away. Dave Mason and Steve Cropper are the headliners this year.
Avatar 8:20pm Mailman Tom:

The NYT gave Otis Rush a respectful and lengthy obit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm DouglasInDallas:

  8:21pm Lothianman:

That sounds great. Dave mason can play. Alone together was a fantastic album

It would probably be a good idea on Saturday the 18th to warn the neighbors that we’re loud obnoxious drunks with prolific pokers among us…

Oh wait, that wasn’t for WFMU! IGNORE!!! www.nytimes.com...
