    Oh no. Have been listening to this pretty heavily past few weeks.

    Saw him a few years ago - maybe more than a few actually - and he wasn't in great health; a lot of weight and couldn't move around too much. He still put on a really good show and for the songs he wasn't mobile to get to the women in the audience, the women went to him lol

    Can't attest to being a long time fan but Shoes is my jam! Rest in peace.

    such a great artist. Glad he lived as long as he did.

    The "Two Steps from the Blues" LP is one of the greatest blues soul albums I've ever had the chance to hear. After my first listen I went on a hunt for every Bobby Bland album I can find. Rest in Peace to a man who put so much great music into the world

    My dad always tells a story about seeing him live in the 1950s. To hear him tell it, he put on an unforgettable show. RIP.

    Glad I saw him in the 80s.

    Great music.
