Allman Brothers fans and blues fans everywhere lost one of the great artists of the genre this morning with the passing of Little Milton in a Memphis hospital following a stroke last week. He was a superb guitarist, a great vocalist, and one of the best song writers and band leaders of our time. And from all accounts he was a good man. We will miss him. I will always cherish the opportunity I had to see him sit in with the Allman Brothers at the Beacon this year.

Here's the AP release:

Bluesman Little Milton Campbell Dies
-
Thursday, August 4, 2005

(08-04) 10:17 PDT Jackson, Miss. (AP) --

Mississippi bluesman Little Milton Campbell has died in a Memphis hospital from complications of a stroke, his publicist Carrie Newton confirms.

Newton said Campbell, 71, died Thursday about 8:50 a.m. Newton said no other details were being released immediately.

Campbell suffered a stroke July 27.

The Inverness native had been scheduled to perform Aug. 11 at Clarksdale's Ground Zero Blues Club for the blues documentary "Native Sons," but that performance was canceled.

Campbell's last appearance in Jackson was at The Allman Brothers Band concert in May.

His hit record "We're Gonna Make It" and his 1978 vintage black jacket were on display in Clarksdale last year as part of a "Sweet Home Chicago" exhibit at the Delta Blues Museum.

Funeral services were pending.

Campbell is survived by his wife, Patricia, and several children.
