I know there are blues fans here. Here's a sad story of the murder of a young (at least in bluesman age) musician. He was shot and killed in his car early yesterday morning. He played the Kingston Mines earlier that night. He played the funky blues that the kids like. What's a little weird is 20 minutes earlier a 74 year old church Deacon was killed in his car within three blocks. RIP ... http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20131219/south-shore-below-79th/eric-guitar- davis-fixture-of-local-blues-scene-shot-death-friends


There will be a fund raising benefit next month that will be streamed live ... a good opportunity to watch Billy Branch and Sugar Blue .. http://gigity.tv/event/12790/

Thanks for sharing this info.Such a tragic story. I will be watching the benefit online ( only $6) and have shared the link with others urging them to do so as well. I am sure it will expose me to some terrific musicians I am not now familiar with and I hope it will help the family with expenses.

It is tragic. What kind of animal would put a bullet in two people's heads a week before Christmas? Wait until you see Billy Branch and Sugar Blue jam on harmonica. Here they are with Charlie Musselwhite ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P96FYDt0d5I
