** R and B giant Bobby 'Blue' Bland has died at the age of 83 at his home in a suburb of Memphis....
**'I Pity The Fool' was one of his classic sides and his barnburner 'Turn On Your Love Light' has been covered by so many artists I couldn't begin to guess the total...
**He also recorded some great duets with B.B. King...
**Another one for the badass band of beyond..
*that's a shame - loved his work with (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-I3sfCrNlI&list=PLDFB35CE238F2405B) BB - they REALLY complimented each other
Also, There's a slew of his 50s and 60s Duke label recordings to be found on YouTube...Consistently great...
