    The legend, the hero. Good to us and good for us.

    I saw him perform the only time that he ever came to Chicago. I shook the man's hand, and that will have to be enough.

    This is three times as bad as James Brown, who was appreciated when he died.

    Rest peacefully, Brother Eddie. My life is better for having met you. The Second Line will never be the same.




    Sorry for the gush, but this hurts.

    That's unfortunate. :


    For some reason I kept thinking of Jimmy Bo Horne. Weird.

    From the Times-Picayune (NOLA newspaper) obit:

    In 1999, an electrical fire destroyed the Tulane Avenue building that housed the health food store. Mr. Bo also lived in the building. The fire claimed his two keyboards, along with master tapes of unreleased and previously released recordings, musical charts he had painstakingly written over the years, and a collection of his own classic 45s.

    never knew this before. don't even want to think about what might have been on those unreleased masters...
